5 stars Is this Focus best album or is it Hamburguer Concerto? Well i donīt know i think itīs just a matter of taste. This album is just amazing, it runs perfectly from start to finish, Hocus Pocus starts the album and itīs Focus most popular song and what a great song it is showing one of Focus main characteristics which is a very strange sense of humor, awesome guitar by Akkerman and well those crazy vocals by Thijs van Leer just fit perfectly, second track is Le Clochard a lovely piece by Akkerman, then comes Janis which is also a beatiful song. Track four is Moving Waves featuring awesome vocals and keyboards by Thijs van Leer. Focus III comes next and itīs one of my favorites excellent song. So when you thought this couldnīt do better comes Eruption, an epic masterpiece and arguably Focus best song , Akkerman does an unbelievable interpretation here, one of the best guitar players of the 70īs for sure, Thijs van Leer plays amazing keyboards and flute also (as always).

So overall every song on the album is amazing and it runs so smoothly, an almost perfect album and definitely a masterpiece of proggresive rock.
