Focus - Focus 9 / New Skin (2010)









This album plus the previous Focus 8 are definitely a return to form of the classic earlier period Focus, albeit without guitarist Jan Akkerman in the ranks. The guitarist on this album though certainly comes close to his sound and technical skills.

 With lots of instrumentals that certainly sound familiar and one track with real vocals this is on the whole a progressive rock fans delight with lots of flute and guitar with excellent bass and drums. This is also the first time original drummer P van Der Linden and Thijs van Leer have played together on record for over thirty years. One can only look forward to more releases like this.
