2 stars P. J. Proby was not a perfect choice to Focus, nor were guitarists Eef Albers and Philip Catherine. The result? A rather confusing album, without Focus's classical experiences and jazz-rock oriented. But there are some songs which deserves better attention: "Sneezing Bull" and "Maximum", both available at "Focus Live at the BBC", which documents a concert in 1976, with a transitional line-up (David Kemper was sitting at the drum stool, Eef Albers was yet to join and there was no P. J. Proby) - and on this album, these songs really shine. P. J. Proby is guilty of exaggeration, like Chris Farlowe in some recordings, and he didn't aggregate much to Focus' sound. A sad way to end a brilliant career.
