4 stars This album is really classic and legendary. No reason for not owning this album if you really love prog rock. This album combines jazz, rock, fusion and classical music altogether into one piece of music. The first time I fell in love with the album (and with the band!) when my brother, Jokky, played 5th track "Focus III" sometime dated back mid 70s. WOW! it BLEW my mind man ..!! What a stunning organ intro and soft guitar these guys were playing! I could net let my finger not to push the rewind button having completed with this track. Not only that this track is excellent but the follow-up track that is continued seamlessly, "Answers? Questions! Questions? Answers!" is very uplifting and fantastic as well. It has a strong influence of jazz, rock and classic. Oops . it's not the end yet. It has blues component as well!!!!

My CD version has "Anonymous Two" with a duration of 26 minutes as last track of this album. It's another amazing track with an upbeat music in the vein of jazz with great flute solo. Overall, this album is excellent and highly recommended. Rating 4/5. - Gatot Widayanto, Indonesia.
