4 stars The peak of a genre I like to call classically influenced progressive music.

All the meat of this album is in the title track. (Heh.)

Harem Scarem, Hocus Pocus No.2, either way, a bit repetitive but nice. Birth is a child from Mr. Akkerman, a incredible guitarist. La Cathédral De Strasbourg is a nice offering from The lunatic Thijse Van Leer, flautist and keyboardist.

But, like Foxtrot, the real enjoyment comes from the title track. Cleverly named in sections of the various stages of a hamburger, Thijse uses his compositional talent to his maximum here. Some odd vocalisations, guitar solos, and the classical organ make this a unique epic.

Likely the best from Focus!
