In the amount of time they made this album they did a bang up job because it is fantastic. It's my second favorite these days under Animals. This album grew on me more than any other album I own.

Another good Floyd album and although I've had it a while only really gave it a listen recently. Free Four is superb

I've had this on tape for years and only really ever listened to it in the car, well I can't do that anymore! I recently picked up a brand new vinyl re-issue and have 'properly' listened to this album. I love the opener and the closer and don't dislike what's in between either. When Syd left, Pink Floyd tried different approaches and styles, this is less experimental than Echoes with shorter tracks which paves the way for Dark Side of The Moon.

The last floyd album from my favorite period of the group. the post Barrett pre DSOTM era (I know I am in the minority on this). I just love the adventurous, creative, challenging, psychedelic pieces they were putting out in this era. The instrumentals are fantastic and Childhood's End is one of their most underrated songs.

It surely has its highlights. Childhood's Ende and The Gold, it's in the... are very good floyd songs. But the overall feeling of this album is Just weak. The vocals sound weird. Nö pleasant crying guitars. No dimensional sounds that make you float from your chair. It is truly not a really good Pink Floyd Album.

Absolutely underrated! If you don't hold it against their other classics and lower your expectations this album deserves more recognition. Childhood's End is top 5 Pink Floyd songs for me!

Obscured by Meddle and DSOTM is more like it. Not a bad album at all. I guess it's a low risk/low payoff type of album, which is not common among the band's stellar 70s repertoire. It still feels very Floydish and I recommend it to any fans out there who have overlooked this little gem of a record.

Can't help but love this album. Bang in the middle of two of their very best, it holds its own by being so different!

Very underrated album—there's only one track that can be considered a great standout track, but for the most part the songs are good and very pleasant for Floyd fans. Relaxed, sometimes showcasing some neat instrumental pieces, and certainly not as stressful as some of Floyd's other works.

Key Cuts: Wot's... Uh the Deal, Free Four, Childhood's End
