October 24, 2020: ONE WEEK REMAINING in the Annual Heavy Harmonies Donation Drive!

Donations stand at covering 63% of the site's annual expenses... so close and yet so far. The annual donation drive is what keeps the site free for everyone so that I'm only pestering you once a year rather than running ads year round.

If you are not in a position to contribute (which I fully understand), please disable your ad-blocker on heavyharmonies.com. When you click through any of the eBay links, if you buy something on eBay, Heavy Harmonies will get a tiny commission.

Donation buttons are shown below. There is a thread on the HH forum that explains the perks for donating at the $20 and $50 levels.

Thank you for supporting the Heavy Harmonies community!


Donate $50    Donate $20    Donate $10    Donate $5    Donate $2

I expected for more when i saw the names of Tim Pierce or Mike Slamer involved here, but at first listens i was a bit disappointed, yep itīs a good AOR/MR album, Good production, some good solos, Pomp Choruses(i cannot dig this kind of choruses). "Never Find Her Alone" "Brand New World" "Evil and Pain" "Emily" and the ballad "Forever With You" are good ones. I still prefer their "Ordinary Just Wonīt Do" album. 8.6/10

An overall very strong album! Especially the first and the last track are 2 of the better songs I've heard since years! 95/100

good release by GRAND ILLUSION with fantastic production and many good songs like "never find her alone","emily" and the sensational "forever with you".good musicianship,clear sound and some pomp is what you get here.good one

This is a great AOR/pomp release and I love the harmony vocals in "Sacrifice" (1.15min - 1,25min!!!). I do have the 2 previous Grand Illusion albums on Escape Music as well and if you like these you will love Brand New World too. One of the songs is named after my daughter "Emily" so this Cd will always be special for me.

Hope these guys will continue to bring us high quality albums.
