3 stars " Hocus Pocus" threw me off balance as a start to this album but Moving Waves is a great jazz rock album with much progressive influence and feel to it. The ' Eruption' suite on side 2 is an epic track with very much a Canterbury feel to the sound in parts as well. Jan Akkerman and co certainly contributed a great deal to the genre representing The Netherlands along with Golden Earring etc in the 70's. Focus only managed two albums before desolving but worthy ones at that. ' Janis' and ' Focus II' are other great tracks. This album has excellent guitar, keyboards and mix of jazz and rock. One can only wonder how they would have evolved as a group after 1972, even though individually some members went on in different directions. A solid affair.
