I like both, but like some others here, Final Cut gets my vote. It is unquestionably PF's most underappreciated album. As many of you know, it was written at the same time as The Wall, and there was some talk that The Wall was going to be a triple album - in which case Final Cut would simply have been the third disc. Now THAT would have been amazing!

What I had heard was that The Final Cut is made by songs that were actually rejected by the rest of the band to be part of the Wall. And that was actually one of the complaints Gilmour had with that album, he thought that if the songs weren't good enough to be on The Wall, then why should they be good enough for the new album. And in a way he was right, however, I do find a few of the Final Cut songs very enjoyable, and most of them I could somehow easily find their place on The Wall, which might have made it a bit better to my taste.

The Final Cut was (unusually I think for most people) the album that first got me into Floyd so it would have to be that one (and I still think it's great with all it's holophonics and Waters' snarling lyrics - though came to realise it was much more Watersy than Floydy as I got more into them).

I met Andy Jackson, who engineered it, when he mastered an album of ours a couple of years back and asked him about it - he told me he'd never listened to it since!

It's the Final Cut all the way for me. It's definitely my favorite Floyd album.
I've always seen it as similar to Let It Be, in that all the members hated each other, yet the end product was some of their best. Gilmour's solo's? Untouched by any prior Floyd album.

Obscured by Clouds. The Final Cut is quite nearly a Waters solo album with guests appearances by Gilmour and Mason.

I prefer The Final Cut over Animals, as I think Obscured By Clouds is the start of Floyd's three album streak that ended on Wish You Were Here.
But because the idea of the band having a three album streak, seems the public had it confused Animals is part of the chain.
Obscured By Clouds.

Obscured By Clouds.


For me Obscured by Clouds sounds too different to Dark Side and Wish. It still sounds more like early Floyd, or to the other soundtrack (and attempt of soundtrack - More and Zabriskie Point). So, indeed for me, the 3 album streak is from Dark Side to Animals (The Wall is a big change of sound in my book). Or else, I might be tempted to ignore Oscured by Clouds and make it a 4 album streak from Meddle to Animals... for me those ones represent the quintesential Floyd sound.

Obscured all the way. It's my favorite PF album.
Two random guys agreed to shake hands. Just Because. They felt like it, you know. It was an agreement of sorts...a random agreement.

the Final Cut. Only albums that are weaker than Obscured are those eighties albums without Rog.

^ Pink Floyd only did one album in the 80's without Rog. I mean studio one, of course. And actually, I do like it more than Obscured by Clouds, and just about as much as The Final Cut.
