Be Amazed

Illusions holds a special place in my playlists. It is the brainchild of Thomas Bergersen, who is also known for his work in Two Steps From Hell, one of the prominent trailer music producers.
The music is very similar: Sweeping epic orchestras will liven your imagination. The music is strong, full, and features many original melodies. It is trailer music, so it must be specifically tuned to appeal to a wide audience and stand out while the trailer plays.

There are some differences though that make this album stand out even more than TSFH's tracks. A weakness of trailer music is that it often lacks variation. Like pop has its standard setup of drums+guitars+singer, so has trailer music its setup of fast-strings+choir+a-random-instrumental-lead. Not so in Illusions, though. Thomas Bergersen chose for a more gradual build with some quiet/mysterious pieces among the hair-raising orchestra. It features a bit more solo singing and a bit less latin choir than usual. That's what makes Illusions the best. The tracks are also longer than common trailer music.

The second half of the album is better than the first half, in my opinion. Tracks to suggest are Merchant Prince, Immortal, Sonera, Reborn, Age of Gods, Illusions and Soulseeker.
Merchant Prince is a more 'standard' trailer track reminiscent of TSFH's Invincible album.
Immortal is likewise very much like Invincible, albeit a bit less famous since it didn't leak out before Illusions was released.
Sonera is a duet, with some great vocals and lots of different threads of music interweaved.
Reborn is slower, but hauntingly beautiful (my favorite).
Age of Gods has a great lead melody especially.
Illusions has some more electronic music interweaved, in synergy with the orchestra.
Soulseeker is the one that will spring to ear first since it is the most epic of the album and has a very loud refrain.

Enjoy listening! This album won't bore you quickly, I can promise.
