Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

Commissioned as the soundtrack for Barbet Schroeder's 1972 film The Valley, Obscured By Clouds actually holds up rather well on its own terms. The title track is a trippy, cinematic instrumental that features some searing guitar work from David Gilmour, but full-fledged songs like "Free Four" (which sounds like a morbid inversion of Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit in the Sky"), and the folksy "Wot's...Uh the Deal" are the real highlights of the set. Essentially a transitional work, Obscured By Clouds has long been dwarfed by Dark Side of the Moon, the album which came immediately after it. In fact, the funky "Childhood's End" and the ethereal "Burning Bridges" could well be dry runs for the Dark Side tracks "Time" and "Breathe," respectively. In all, it's a priceless snapshot of a band on the verge of immortality. --Dan Epstein

I wanna make this short and sweet but its is too good to do that. This album is so great. If you have any interest in Pink Floyd Get this album. No one really thinks of this album and it is very underrated.
1.Obscured By Clouds- instrumental but very good
2.When You're In - instrumental, and a good one again
3. Burning Bridges - sounds like something from dark side of the moon, good song
4. The Gold It's In The... - If you want a faster song by pink floyd this is the one. My 2nd fav song on on album
5. Wots...Uh The Deal - MY favorite song ,the lyrics to this are so amazing,this track is some of Pink Floyds best work.
6. Mudmen -instrumental, very cool
7. Childhood's End - this is another track thats sounds like it's from dark side of the moon.
8. Free Four - this is 3rd favorite song, really good song, good lyrics
9. Stay - a good song
10. Absolutely Curtains - this song i dont care for much but the other tracks make out for it
Must buy
5 stars.

Pink Floyd released their eighth album(overall) Obscured by Clouds in June of 1972. The album was a soundtrack to the French film La Vallee, which was directed by Barbet Schroder. OBC was the band's second film soundtrack for Schroder, their first was the 1969 movie More. I first heard and obtained a copy of this album when I was 11 years old on cassette and I now have the remaster on CD and the sound on the remaster is like night and day(it buries the cassette and original CD). This album was the album released before 1973's The Dark Side of the Moon and was the band's first ever US Top 50 disc peaking at a respectable #46 and eventually went Gold(in 1994). The album was produced by Pink Floyd themselves and was recorded in a week at the Chateau D'herouville(a/k/a the Honky Chateau as Elton John called it) in France in late February of 1972. The album kicks off with the title cut(featuring excellent synth work from both keyboardist Rick Wright and bassist/vocalist Roger Waters and slide guitar from guitarist/vocalist David Gilmour) which then segues into When You're In(with excellent drumming from drummer Nick Mason). Those two tracks were staples of Floyd shows in 1973 on the Dark Side tour. Burning Bridges follows and has a great vocal from Gilmour and Wright and is a great tune. The Gold It's In The... is a hard rocker with some great guitar work from Gilmour. Wots...Uh the Deal follows and is a great song with excellent keyboard work from Wright and great vocals and guitar work from Gilmour. Next is an instrumental version of Burning Bridges entitled Mudmen which is in a different tempo than Burning Bridges. Side two kicked off with Childhood's End(one of Gilmour's best songs ever).Read more ›

This isn't really a concept album like most of their later works. Neither is it as creative as some of their earlier work (Piper, Ummaggumma, Atom Heart Mother, Meddle). Obscured By Clouds shows a really great band that is somewhat held back by the limitations of the particular film. It's like a really phenomenal band that has already soared high above most of the music world on wings of creativity, but here they're coming down from the clouds to show everybody who hasn't seen that they are big fish in a small pond (so to speak) and that they are ready to move on (less than a year later they would record Dark Side of the Moon and every following album would be even better until Waters leaves the band). OBC seems uninspired at first, but there's actually a good deal of effort that was put into this. The lack of inspiration stems from the lack of a general concept that their more popular albums have and the lack of inspiration only shows up when you compare OBC to other Floyd works. It most certainly is not junk. You almost can't be a true Pink Floyd fan to enjoy this. I didn't really even start to like OBC until I had and knew by heart all of Pink Floyd's albums, and had moved on to buying and listening mostly to CDs from other bands. I think that all of the "soundtrack albums" are very interesting now. Obscured By Clouds is a very rewarding listen, but it is not for the uninitiated. Recommended.
