  7. Jul 24,  · When my interest in prog rock was on the rise around the early '90s, I was wondering if it was worth trying Focus, and once I got to hear Moving Waves, I was not disappointed. The album was entitled Focus II in Holland, but elsewhere, it's known as Moving Waves. This album is definately an improvement over In & Out of Focus/5(17).
