Track descriptions[edit]

Illusion was used successfully on a YouTube video paired with the work by artist Andrew Huang until it was taken down due to confusion by viewers who thought Mr. Huang had plagiarized the music.[4] Five months after its release the song gained attention in the UK by being dedicated to Sophie Lancaster, the victim of mob attack murder.
