Romantic Album) Sentimental. Sexy Trippy All Moods. Drinking Hanging Out In Love. Introspection Late Night Partying. Rainy Day Relaxation Road Trip. Romantic Evening Sex All Themes. ISBN Retrieved 24 April Archived from the original on Retrieved Even with it's hippy overtones, Relf's one demo sounds sincere as compared to McCarty's demos. Uber keyboardist John Hawken, from the Strawbs' Hero and Heroine fame, is almost completely muted, and makes "Enchanted Caress" all the more harder to endure.
McCarty is the Album) songwriter and chief vocalist, with Jane singing warm emotive backing vocals. The star of this album is once again Hawken, who's seems to channel some of the late John Tout's regal touch and excels on piano on every track that features him. Even the two tracks that don't feature Hawkin showoff McCarty's growing skills as pianist, along with his drumming and percussion work on all but one track on this album.
Cennamo demonstrates why the Mach 2 Annie Haslam fronted lineup had to be as good or better than the original. McCarty has crafted a fine album that elegantly bridges the gap between both of those groups, and ironically, produced the best Illusion album ever committed to vinyl. Illusion's first third? It starts off with Isadora, a haunting track that has has an atmosphere for the ages, and this is something this record REALLY excels out. It conveys moods so well.
It might sound like it came out of the early 70s, but that's okay in my book. Next The New Illusion - The Fantom - Psychotropical Party (CD is Roads to Freedom, probably a weaker track on the album. This one, along with "Solo Flight" doesn't have the atmosphere I discussed earlier, but it's pleasant enough. Beautiful Country is a fantastic folk ballad, with ominous lyrics and the great harmonies from McCarty and Jane Relf.
Mentioned earlier, Solo Flight Album) a rockier track that, to my ears, falls flat. Thankfully it's over pretty fast. Everywhere You Go is a nice little pop ditty, but nothing remarkable. Now for the last two tracks. Face of Yesterday is a rerecording of the same song on the Illusion album from This version is much more polished and is as good as the original, keeping the mellow mood intact just fine.
Finally, the big one at the end. If Isadora isn't enough to warrant having the record, Candles Are Burning is a tour de force of prog. In the middle of the second half it features a minute-long instrumental break on synthesizer, characteristic of progressive rockafter which the guitar returns with a catchy chorus.
It was originally based on Shaw's Album) perception of DeYoung who was an "angry young man" who viewed the group's successes with a wary eye and grew angry or depressed with every setback. It was only in later years that Shaw began to see himself in the lyrics, and the song took on a more personal meaning to him. The composition features a number of time signature changes.
