3 stars Trapped in the Meddle and Obscured by the Dark Side of the Moon.

Stoner Rock. If that helps to prepare yourself for an un-prog soundtrack by a top Prog band. I kind of think that "Obscured by Clouds", 1972, must have disappointed all the emerging Floyd followers. It should have been like suddenly realizing that such a daring and unorthodox Prog band started to play this kind of 60'S Stoner/Folk Rock (better dead than greatful!!).

Funny considering that nowadays Gilmour's well rated solo releases, never fell that far from this tree. But anyway this is one of Pink Floyd's less prog efforts, nevertheless composition wise, there are some nice things going for it. The keyword is "simplicity" by not sounding simple.

Anyway, this release got it tough from the start by appearinging in 1972, one of the best years in Prog history in all its branches and after their highly psychedelic and appreciated "Meddle" 1971 and before the super famous TDSOM, 1973.

Stoner Rock if that helps.

***3 PA stars.
