3 stars Overall, THE GRAND ILLUSION is of the same calibre material as EQUINOX was with the one exception of not having that ultimate standout track like ''Suite Madame Blue''. There actually might be some proggier aspects here, like the odd metre in ''Fooling Yourself''. The title track is one of the finer cuts off the album and gave me the push to give THE GRAND ILLUSION three stars although the fine rocker ''Miss America'' helped do that as well. The kicker is that I don't care for the ballad that begins ''Come Sail Away''. It's in the same vein as EQUINOX, so if you liked that one, give THE GRAND ILLUSION a try.
