4 stars Although not as great as Focus III, this was without doubt much more mature, without all the unnecessary jams. The replacement of van der Linden by Allen on drums affected the sound a lot. Allen is a very straightforward drummer, and a lot the jazz influence that was abundant on Focus III disappeared into thin air. The album features a strong rock track in Harem Scarem, a medieval lute piece, a romantic piece with rock and jazz influences, a folk rock tune with harpsichord, so the variety is awesome! The true meat of the album is the 20+ minute title track in true symphonic rock style. This is the last of the trio of the great Focus albums. Not to be missed in any real collection!
