"Without any doubt Focus is a super band. Four classified musicians, who produce a sound to which a right-minded poplover listens with red cheeks and ears.

High-classed popmusic of an unkown high standard. In their rather short period of existence, they build themselves a true reputation that attracts full houses far beyond our borders. The four with the composersduo Akkerman/ Van Leer in a centered position scored hits like "House of the King" and "Hocus Pocus" through which they became better known to a larger audience, but their albums caused them their real big fame.

"Focus II" that you can also find on this "Moving Waves" album, is without a doubt the best popalbum made by a Dutch band so far. Focus is one of the few bands that expands and enriches its already unique sound all the time. It's rather obvious: we just can't do without Focus".
