3 stars Moving Waves is a very nice album, but somewhat inconsistent. The lead track, the full version of Hocus Pocus, is an incredibly cool instrumental freakout- besides, you can't go wrong with yodeling. Le Clochard is a kinda good atmospheric piece, nothing special here. Janis, however, is atmospheric, but there's more here, mainly the relaxing and pastoral flute- very nice song, could have been longer though. Moving Waves is a piano-led short song, not impressive at all really. And, to conclude Side I, Focus II is an average-quality instrumental piece.

Then is Eruption, the 23-minute instrumental monster. There's some very nice stuff in this song, but it really doesn't interest me much. I guess this is because there isn't a feeling of connection to the song, it just seems like 23 minutes of well-played but somewhat random pieces of various instrumentation. So, Moving Waves is a good album, but not really great- three stars seems in order.

Neurotarkus | 3/5 |
