4 stars Illusion is the second release by the first "era of Renaissance. Jane Relf has gotten exeptionally better on this album, as the first album she had a sqeeky sound to her voice. Which was unpleasent at times. She has a sort of dignified sound to her voice, once which I really enjoy! The song Mr. Pine features a whole new band (with John Hawken and Jane Relf I beleive) and the solo would later be made well known on the song Running Hard (though it'd would be faster). Love Goes On sounds like something from The Beatles almost ;) which isn't a bad thing in this situation. This Renaissance is FAR different than the Annie Haslam verson, though nice and peaceful. This is one of my favorite Renaissance albums and I recomend this to any fans of Renaissance!
