I am in no way a specialist on this band. I only have a couple of its all albums ones I like a play once in a while and I find them very satisfying.

This kind of music keeps me in a good mood all day, The Cathedral of Strasbourg anyone?

So, when Google Play Music ( I use this service, please don't hate me) announced me that a new album by Focus was on the market I took the bait and here I am.

First of all: this is an excellent addittion to your Focus colllection and your Prog collection in general, time has stand still on this case and They are producing music like We were on the seventies still. The spirit is still there, I know that Jan Akkerman is no more but Mr. Gootjes is no slouch and plays exactly the type of guitar that Mr. Akkerman would do if He were on board and let me tell You: on drums They have a good one, I enjoyed every single beat of that jazz drums.

The music in general is "jazzier", sometimes I feel I have a Steely Dan album on the turntable. But the "humming", the flute and the organ reminds me again where I am.

All music, and almost no words (only on one song), makes this one a perfect 2019 year album for me, and You too.
