    As a sampler, the EP does its job wonderfully--introducing Poor Moon and whetting the public's appetite for a full-length album.

    The songs on Illusion are detailed on the whole, but remain lightly so in other aspects.

    It's a fantastic soundtrack for a slow-moving morning after a long night of misbehaving.

    Illusion is a slight effort by any standard, even the most fair: the bar set by the prior work of the band members themselves.

    Illusion is simple and retro-sounding, and as a short first record, it shows promise for future albums from this group of old friends.

    Shedding much of the Spoon influence of Crystal Skulls, Poor Moon follow the same rustic backwoods folk path as Fleet Foxes.

    Illusion is a decent release, but it doesn't differentiate itself from anything Fleet Foxes would have written.

On the CD you should also pay attention to the "People In Her Mind" - reminiscent of the '60s and '70s. Expand
