4 stars 01. Hocus Pocus If this is not a song here I swear that I do not know what it is. Riff perfect, more perfect vocalizations. Instrumental almost never an issue and was recognized as important in the secular music world, this is the theme that I call amazing and superb, from very different tune. If interleave thousands of topics within a theme. Thijs of the vocals are a case in part, simply brilliant. Parts of the guitar Jan Akkerman are also always very well played, the flutes beautiful, low Havermanns of Cyril and battery of Pierre van der Linden always marking a constant theme but without being intediante. An anthem!

02. Le Clocharde Main theme of the Jan. guitar, divine melody, only with the monitoring of a synthesizer emulating strings. Soft, beautiful and emotional.

03. Janis Flutes, several of them. More touching a theme of Dutch. The melodies emulate the soul to interact more and dream a little. In this issue of the low serious Cyril Havermanns has highlighted melodic.

04. Moving Waves Atonal? Melodicamente wrong? That exists? This is Moving Waves on piano and voice of Thijs Van Leer, we have the most sincere, beautiful and sensational already composed. Challenge you to listen without being rough and without paying full attention, and depending on the case to be sad with her.

05. Focus II The 'Focus' are compositions that always accompany the band, including a solo album that I have of Thijs Van Leer where he plays flute (unfortunately only have it in Lp). Focus on this issue is a pleasant surprise of melody that is difficult to explain, but very beautiful. The guitars give a show in the entire track. The second issue is even more beautiful, the melody of the guitar reaches the heart, soul and leads to the presence that would be divine if I came to believe him. Sometimes it's just what we need to cure the ills of the body and soul. Nothing more!

06. Eruption

a) Orfeus, Answer, Orfeus b) Answer, Pupilla, Tommy, Pupilla c) Answer, The bridge d) Euridice, Dayglow, Endless Road e) Answer, Orfeus, Euridice This theme is montruoso and it is difficult to classify exactly who is Orpheus, what is the answer and etc ... What I can say is that this monstrous issue (more than 23 minutes) is sensational and tires in no time. Orchestrated the opening of guitars, organ of the church, the Hammond. Everything here is very well arranged and tied at no time is paraecendo different compositions that are embedded, but a single piece solid and without holes, a complete 'Wall'. Some Vocalizations for further increasing the tone of talking to the sound. Sensational subject of guitar again. Nice to meet you Jan Akkerman. Part of madness, doidera staff in general, faster, more crazy, some guitar riffs and low together, after the keyboard and guitar. Why did so between the guitar break on top of a base sensational, the Hammond organ in Thijs is always an extra in the sound of the guys. After the soil around the theme. Ai is the time to get heavy keyboard and guitar make the most basic legal I ever saw. Introsadíssima band. And we are only half the issue. Fine interventions and also of low battery. The guitar around the theme of Hocus Pocus momentarily. Then a beautiful part of piano and guitar takes care of the environment. Vocalizations typical monasteries that weather guy, that climate. Tá without climate for thinking? Without crisis! Focus of the guys invited to a tea of mint. (laughter) Battery !!!!!!!!! The theme quiet and beautiful back on top at the end of the song. This is epic, this is perfect! This is Focus.

What we have here? A classic. The Focus is not so well known, people know but do not hear. Here is the chance to hear a classic.
