The last of their quickly made soundtracks or what is basically a Waters solo album?

I like both, but The Final Cut gets my vote.

Besides The Gunner's Return, Not Now John, and Two Suns, I really dislike The Final Cut. Obscured is something of a hidden gem, while The Final Cut belongs left in the ground.

I  find Obscured to be a slight, irrelevant album. I vote Final Cut. An easy winner for me.

I love both of them so much, both suit completely different moods and are wonderful works in their own right.

Probably `Final Cut' is more compelx and thoughtful, but `Obscured' has a few lovely instrumentals and great vocals pieces. I think I've listened to that more over the last several years, so I'll vote that.

I'm actually shocked that there is so much dislike in general for `The Final Cut' amongst PF fans. I mean, I know there's not many `crowdpleasing' moments on it like `The Wall', but it's such a sublime intelligent work, with maybe Waters best ever vocals?

I like "Obscured..." a lot as a collection of songs (some great, some average) but "The Final Cut" is my favourite PF album.  I love the concept, storyline, sarcasm, lyrics, Roger's vocals (and background screaming/whispering/voices) and the music.  I believe Gilmour wasn't involved in the writing but he still unleashes some ripping guitar parts...

"...and it can't be much fun for them

I'm using the chicken to measure it.

Obscured By Clouds is the last album before they became hugely successful etc. A fine album.

Obscured for me.....it's a slice of dreamy early laid back Floyd.
The Final Cut is another attempt by Waters to 'be Pink Floyd' and he fails miserably imho.

The lyrics of Free Four have been fundamental for the following 5 Floyd's albums.

For me, Obscured by Clouds is the best overall album they ever made.
 
They made better individual tracks on other albums, but for consistent enjoyment, it's the best.

Like both albums a lot but they each have very different moods.  If I had to pick OBC.

Perhaps this.

Obscured ... . An easy vote for me. But that's not to slight the other candidate, which has an edge of it own.

Neither album is among my favourites, and both have moments to be enjoyed. I would go with "The Final Cut", for I belive it has more strong moments, though I still think it could have been better.
