Following two semi-pastoral Tony Tixier originals, "I Remember The Time Of Plenty" and "Denial Of Love," the listener is treated to a commendably loose interpretation of Louis Armstrong's timeless "Tight Like This," which apparently Tixier's grandmother enjoyed singing. Whilst it retains some of the hooks of the 1920's tune, it is transformed into something completely different. The album follows a similar pattern to the above tracks, variously populated by dulcet or forceful numbers. "Illusion" manages to combine both of these elements, undoubtedly benefitting from Tommy Crane's crisp percussion.
