4 stars This compilation is not enough appreciated, maybe because it can't truly be called an album, as the tunes here weren't intended to sound out together in this order. It is therefore a compilation spanning many years and not a coherent album, however the quality of the music here is sometimes on par with stuff from "Focus III", in fact it's their most jazzy album except for that one. Even the poppish funk pieces "Gilder" and "Crackers" sound way better than this kind of stuff sounded on "Mother Focus". The album closes out with an insanely fast version of "Hocus Pocus" which should be a nice treat for anyone with patience to sit through the entire thing!
Salviaal | 4/5 |
