The Hoax Is Over is an album by Australian blues-rock band, The Aztecs.

Billy Thorpe, the leader of the Aztecs, renewed the band in the late 1968. Guitarist Lobby Loyde joinded to the band, and they turned to a more bluesier and heavier style. The new band’s debut album recorded in September 1970, and it was released in the beginning of the next year.

“The Hoax Is Over” was released in January 1971 by Infinity. All of four tracks of the album also released on the 3-CD compilation in 1994, but “Gangster of Love” and “Mississippi” (renamed to “Born in Mississippi”) in a shortened version.
