Prog Reviewer
3 stars Kicking off with possibly the only proto-metal track from the 1970s to feature yodelling in Hocus Pocus, Moving Waves starts out confidently but doesn't have many tracks to compare with the opening barrage. The sidelong epic Eruption is a fair stab at a 20-minute symphonic composition which rather misses the mark, though it does at least include a brief tip of the hat to fellow Dutch proggers Solution by covering a scrap from their self-titled debut. The rest of the songs are by and large unmemorable. On balance, I think I'd have been better off picking up the opening track on iTunes and leaving the rest, because only Hocus Pocus is really essential listening here. A three star album consisting of a five-star song backed up with two- to-three star material.
