about

A lot of Neo-Proggers have used middle-period
GENESIS (circa 1974-1976) as their role model.
Now imagine a band shaping its musical template
around milder Genesis tunes like "More Fool Me"
or "Ripples", and you'll have a pretty clear idea of
the Art and Illusion aesthetic.
What's immediately apparent in the band's
sophomore album is the professional production
job, a vast improvement over their rough-around-
the-edges 1990 debut.
The addition of an actual drummer must have
provided a real shot in the arm, and the entire
album shows an increased confidence
stemming no doubt from a more stable line-up
of musicians.
The final ballad "The Aleph" is a little jewel...
