5 stars In my humble opinion, this is one of the most overlooked prog albums of the 70's. I have been listening to Focus longer than any other band, and I consider this double album to be their finest ever. Released in between the two more critically acclaimed albums Moving Waves and Hamburger Concertp, I think this album has the most to offer in terms of consistency and musical genius. Every track on the album has something to offer, but the real high points are simply magnificent. The first is Sylvia, which was a big hit here in the UK, and is one of the best Focus songs of all time. The second is the beautiful Focus III, which seems to get better with every listen. The rest of the first disc are all great, and the album finishes with the ingenious epic jam Anonymous 2, which is a modification of the track Anonymous from their first album. All and all a practically spotless album, and one of my favourite ever prog releases. 5 stars!
