Background: Released in 1972, Obscured by Clouds was the seventh studio album by Pink Floyd.
The album reached #6 on the UK charts and #46 on the U.S. charts which was then the band’s highest-charting album in the U.S.
Obscured by Clouds is the soundtrack to the Barbet Schroeder film La Vallée, and it plays that way. Of course, it’s possible to make the argument that Pink Floyd’s music of the early ’70s usually played as mood music, similar to film music, but it had structure and a progression. Here, the instrumentals float pleasantly, filled with interesting textures, yet they never seem to have much of a purpose. Often, they seem quite tied to their time, either in their spaciness or in the pastoral folkiness, two qualities that are better brought out on the full-fledged songs interspersed throughout the record.
