Pink Floyd Survivor: Obscured by Clouds - Round 2

COBL's computer apparently wasn't fixed, so he sent me a PM asking me to take over once again until he's back in action.

I'm changing my vote in the tally, since I didn't listen to the record again before I voted and thought Absolutely Curtains actually was Mudmen. And AC deserves a unanimous boot.

Votes:
Absolutely Curtains - 9
Total votes - 9

When You're In for me. There's just nothing special about it.

I like When You're In, even if it's only a short piece. I think it goes well with the title cut.

It had been a while since I listened to this one, but I always enjoyed Obscured By Clouds. Some great stuff on there. If I had to pick something for right now, it would be Stay. It does the least for me out of the rest, although that's not to say it's a bad song.

When You're In. It works in context of the album, but it's not essential.

Voted for the title track, because I like When You're In. It's a pretty kickass riff.

Mudmen I suppose. This album is pretty unexceptional really and I don't have strong affection or disaffection for any of the tracks left.

Not even for that. It's just another unremarkable song.

Wot's...uh the deal with that?!

Hey, BTW, have you ever heard anything by Airbag? I just downloaded their latest EP and I really don't know what to think. Music-wise, they sound like an amalgamation of PT and PF. I want to hate them for being so bloody unoriginal, but at the same time, I find their songs enjoyable.
