3 stars The best of Focus?

A nice compilation, in fact the best you can find, but definetly is not "the best" of Focus. There is only one track from "Hamburger Concerto", their best album, but six tracks from "Mother Focus" and "Ship of Memories", something very difficult to justify; as the absence of "Birth", maybe their best song.

As I have their best albums ("Moving Waves", "Focus III" and "Hamburger Concerto") I bought this compilation only to have the best tracks of their first album,"In and Out of Focus" (almost 20 minutes of this compilation are taken from this album!!), and a sample of their later works.

Only for completionists or those who have no album of the band and want just a quick overview of their bautiful music.
