5 stars This CD represents Focus at their maximum potential. Not as variated and fresh as Moving Waves, but this one is more regular, more complete than his predecessor.

"Focus 3" has two jazzy numbers: "Carnival Fugue" and the opening track; also contains a wonderful slow track with flute and accoustic guitar, "Love Remembered"; two long-lenght pieces that many persons could find a little bit boring and ambiguous, but just pay attention to the terrific musicians, overall on Jan Akkerman, one of the best prog guitarist, and you will not get boring if virtuosity pleases your ears. Then, a beautiful lute piece, very renaissancy, with backround flute and subtle percussions: simply impressive. And there are two typical Focus songs, from the vein of MV, and what can I say... those are truly excellent. All these tracks are composed and played in a symphonic way, in the unique style that just Focus has.

NOTE: I agree with Cesar Inca and I would like to count out the addition of "House of the King" as the last track.

Well, just go, get it and hear it! Highly recommended!
