Art And Illusion - Art And Illusion (1990)

The debut album from this Italian band. 

Art And Illusion was a band who released three albums between 1990 and 1995. All to be reviewed/has been reviewed here. 

The band started out as a Genesis tribute band before they started to write their own material. The material here is in the Anthony Phillips vein, it has to be said. Softly spoken progressive rock with some folk and some psychedelic prog influences.

This album is fifty minutes long and the sound is not particular good. The English vocals for example is pretty muddy and far too much in the back of the mix. This album was meant as a demo before it was released as an album. That says it all. 

This is not a bad album. The songs are made by guitars, keyboards, drum machine, classic guitar and bass. It is a bit laid back and it does not have any really great tracks. It is still a decent to good album though. I hope the two other and more proper albums is better than this one.
