3 stars Their best album

"Hocus Pocus" (3.25 Out of 5.00) This Hard rock- oriented song is really funny, unimitable and extremely powerful. Anyone can suffer a pleasant catharsis attack with this.

"Le Clochard" (3.00 Out of 5.00) It`s a delicate song where guitarrist Jan Akkerman show his skills playing what could be considered classical-inspired. Mellotron can be heard on the background.

"Janis" (3.00 Out of 5.00) This song painted a beautiful passage on my mind.

"Moving Waves" (0.75 Out of 5.00) Some kind of poem with a piano work on the background, totally uninspired and out of place.

"Focus II" (4.00 Out of 5.00) My favorite song of the album and the best focus`song I've heard, very passionate and poignant.

"Eruption:" (3.75 Out of 5.00) I really enjoy most of this suite; "Orfeus", "Answer", "Pupilla" and "Tommy" are my favorite while "The bridge" (The longest) are my least. "Euridice" is beautiful and "Dayglow" just makes me realize that this ist worth. Then "Orfeus" and "Euridice" are reprised again to put an end to this worth album.

So I will give just 3 stars (3.25 really)
