4 stars This is not bad and certainly not disco. If you want a band TOTALLY out of their realm AND doing disco, then listen to Queen do disco on Hot Space. Here, Focus just does more structured, 3-4 minute, jazzier, poppier songs. Earlier albums had a time range of: Moving Waves- 2min to 23 minutes Focus 3- 2 & a half minutes to 28 minutes.

This one has a range of 1:30 to 4:02. So if you want extended drawn out cuts, then don't get this one.

The highlights: Bennie Helder, Hard Focus, Focus IV, All Together... Oh That, No Hang Ups & Soft Vanilla.

The lowlights: With everything else in the middle i pick 3: I Need a bathroom (Sung by BERT RUITER, not Jan as another reviewer says) Father Bach & Once in a while i think Someones Crying is on the list. Sometimes it isnt bad though.

While most focus is to sit in a chair and think about what you are hearing, this one is better for reading to.
