...sorry about that Terry. I forgot about your link problems. YES, the new album is very good. The 1st tune is rather hard rocking for Focus, and has tidbits from earlier songs in it, then they settle in to their classic sound. AS much as I hate it, Jan Akkerman is not with them, but the new guy has a great guitar tone.

...copied from MR front page, "After a comeback which resulted in the well-received albums "Focus 8" and “Focus 9”, the band is now back on the frontline, with a fantastic line-up. Also back on the drums is Pierre van der Linden, who is internationally renowned for his rhythmic skills, and is still a defining factor in the Focus sound. Bassist Bobby Jacobs, who stems from a well-acclaimed Dutch musical family and guitarist Menno Gootjes, who participated in Focus at an earlier stage, completes the band's current line-up.
