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

Obscured By Clouds/La Vallee by Pink Floyd
reissued mostly overlooked album by one of the greatest groups in the rock'n'roll world. this album is one of their best, unfortunately it came out and virtually went unnoticed. this album has all the great pink floyd hooks, great guitars, drums and vocals. check it out, just as good as animals, meddle, and the wall.

For me Pink Floyd is Saxophone, electric guitar and unexpected arrangements. This is a bit different, still getting used to it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Floyd Filmsoundtrack May 29 2005
By Sean
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack has a very mellow flow to it. I think people underrate too much. Yes, it's not WISH YOU WERE HERE, DSOTM, or THE WALL, but it is still good. You can't compare floyds works to those albums and judge it that way. Most of their other albums would get a one. It is still an amazing soundtrack. A few of my fav songs on this cd are, OBSCURED BY CLOUDS (awesome instrumental), Wots...UH THE DEAL (nice soft lyrical song very nice), STAY (I think right now my fav song on the album that could change though) If you are a true fan of floyd and arn't one of those punks that only likes them for DSOTM, you may find this album a nice compilation to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars way2vroom4u July 15 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I actually give this album 10 stars. Why this album does not get more acclaim is beyond me. I couldn't phathom a Pink Floyd collection without this album. My favorite tracks: "Burning Bridges" and "Mudmen"-both romantic and soulfull! "Mudmen" is a track that continues the tune originated in "Burning Bridges" but is essentially a bluesy guitar solo by Gilmore. I Love You Dave!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Floyd's most successful film score June 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
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).

5.0 out of 5 stars ...for the instrumentals alone! June 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
this is a great floyd cd.it's weird how the instrumental tracks actually outshine the ones with vocals,however.any fan of pink has to hear the song "mudmen"-one of the most relaxingly uplifting songs ever by anybody.it's just an all-around classic pink floyd cd with no filler cuts,and no egotistical crap.

before it all started... before there was the mind-blowing dark side of the moon... there was obscured by clouds. which came out in '72.
"obscured by clouds" is before works of dark side of the moon. you can definitely see where they were going. obscured by clouds sounds a mix of the '60s floyd (piper at the gates of dawn, saucerful of secrets) and '70s floyd (meddle...). this is where you can hear the absolute best from gilmour. with tracks like "wots... uh the deal" being sorta the "money" of the album. but mostly, obscured by clouds is a instrumental album. theres only a couple tracks with waters vocals.
if you happen to only have floyd's famous albums (dark side of the moon, the wall) get obscured by clouds. extremly underrated, and should be getting the exact same respect dark side of the moon is.
another great record from pink floyd
