It is very hard to believe that this is by the same band who recorded the first four albums. After they peaked with the excellent Hamburger Concerto, they clearly ran out of steam and inspiration before the recording of Mother Focus. The style is very, very different too. Gone are the side-long suits and much of the Classical and folky elements. Gone is also the energy, the passion and the edge. Here they gave us 12 short tunes focusing (pardon the pun) on lounge Jazz and light Funk! This music would work fine if played quietly in a hotel lobby while you're sitting and sipping a drink, or perhaps as film music, but it is not music for listening. It is all very soft and lightweight and there is hardly anything progressive about it.

The music is mostly instrumental, but when the vocals do enter on the embarrassing I Need A Bathroom one wishes that they would have kept it instrumental!

This dull album is only for serious Focus collectors
