4 stars Is this one an underrated album? I don't know, but I just give four stars.

Easily the weakest points of the LP are the sung track, "I need a bathroom", and the empty and repetitive Soft Vanilla, Hard Vanilla and All togheter..., but the rest... aren't bad! The wonderful Someone's cryin'..., put my mind flying upon the clouds, and the imprescindible Mother Focus and Bennie Helder are definitively... enjoyable. Focus IV is another beautiful song, but unfortunately Mr. Thys puts some funky arrangements (I recommend the Jan Akkerman's solo version called "Soft Focus", from his album "Blues Hearts"; it's wonderful: no funky touchs)

No Hangs Up is a very sad songs, that touches me deeply, and the short ending Father Bach is also good. Do try it, anyway.

Greetings, prog fellowship.

P.D.: My english isn't the best. I'm sorry.
