4 stars This album is good only for the presence of Hocus Pocus and Janis. thes two songs are extreme good. Hocus Pocus is an allegro Yodler, very good but strange for a band from Holland. Janis is a POP Jazz ballad, very good and sweet. Good, but too POp, also Moving Waves. The second side is occuped from the little but good suite eruption. Is clear that Moving Waves is a good album in comparison of Focus debut In And Out of focus. But for me is too POP oriented. Hocus Pocus and Janis plus Moving Waves and Janis able to make immortal this album. Van Leer and Akkerman plays very well and in general the production are good, considering that this album is from 1972.

Moving Waves is another Classic album from the 70's, semi universal. And proper for this is another 4 stars album. But don't expect an album totally Prog. Certainly Symphonic, however.

Stige | 4/5 |
