PINK FLOYD / Obscured By Clouds "Music From The Film La Vallée" [1972]

Written and recorded in 2 weeks, Pink Floyd worked with More director Barbet Schroeder once again to score his film La Vallée. This resulted in the tie-in album Obscured By Clouds, Floyd's 7th studio album which would be nearly buried in the sands of time had it not been for remasters and re-issues in box sets.
The 2 weeks they spent on it really shows. It feels rushed, yet hushed and floats around with no real purpose other than to entertain those folks who just want to smoke a joint and watch the clouds go by.
