Overlooked slice of the seventies,
By A Customer
This review is from: Obscured By Clouds (Audio CD)This is a strange one - it never appears in retrospectives of the band's work, being a soundtrack, but actually stands up well as an album in its own right.
The band certainly thought some of the tracks stood alongside the rest of their material - the two opening songs appear on several bootlegs and in fact are very much of the 'shine on' mode of stadium psychedelia.
Musically the album forms a natural bridge between 'Meddle' and DSOTM with the band learning to write shorter songs that don't descend into whimsy.
