Pink Floyd’s “Obscured by Clouds,” their seventh studio album released in 1972, boasts a unique backstory. Originally intended to be the soundtrack for the French film La Vallée, the album was recorded during the film’s production. However, the film’s director, Barbet Schroeder, decided it didn’t quite fit the film’s tone, leading to its separate release.
Departing from Pink Floyd’s prior concept albums, “Obscured by Clouds” takes on a more eclectic approach, resembling a collection of songs tied together by a loose theme of nature and the environment.
Opening with the slow-burning ballad “Obscured by Clouds,” the album gloriously celebrates nature’s beauty. This track offers a perfect introduction to the album’s delightful mix of acoustic and electric guitars, delicately enhanced by touches of synthesisers.
Among the album’s highlights are “When You’re In,” “Burning Bridges,” and “Free Four,” all well-crafted rock songs brimming with captivating melodies and memorable lyrics.
“Obscured by Clouds” serves as a treat for Pink Floyd fans and enthusiasts of progressive rock alike. The album expertly showcases the band’s remarkable musicianship and songwriting prowess.

The album’s atmospheric sound offers a beautiful and immersive experience, perfectly suited for introspective moments on dark and stormy nights. The songs boast catchy melodies and thoughtful lyrics that grant a glimpse into the minds of Pink Floyd’s members.
