5 stars "Illusions On A Double Dimple" is a breathtaking masterpiece and IMHO perhaps TRIUMVIRAT's PHD of all their albums. "Illusions" is essentially 2 epic tracks and stands as highly creative in scope and ambition with its fusion of classical, pop, rock and even some jazz elements. For the most discerned listeners will love this album with continuously shifting musical interludes and dazzling mood and tempos shifts. The songs themselves are brilliantly written and the Harvest Records Remastered version brings out the deep tonal sophistication and true analog feel the album is rich in.

Band line up is Jurgen Fritz (keyboards), Hans Bathelt (drums), and Helmut Kollen (guitar, bass, vocals). The overall sound of the album is very crisp and fresh sounding not sounding like an old 70's release. I hear lots of elements on "Illusions" with allusions to ELP (Obviously) , BEATLES, ELO, YES and GRAVY TRAIN. This is an album that either you love to death or I guess don't get, but I definitely love this album all the way thru and will take this one to the desert Island.
