A year after their debut, Enchant released their second album entitled Wounded. While the sound is better than on the debut, the material is overall much weaker with only a couple of the album's tracks being up to par with the A Blueprint Of The World songs. Like on most of Enchant's albums, the best songs come at the beginning with the absolute highlight being the opener Below Zero which features amazing guitar work. After the three first tracks, all of which are very good, the album begins to "fade to grey" somewhat with some of the songs during the second half tending to feel like just more of the same.

Wounded shows a somewhat narrower set of influences compared with the band's debut with the dominant influence being early Dream Theater. Even though there are still flavours of Rush and Marillion, this is more of a progressive Metal album than anything else. The musicianship is very strong throughout and vocalist Ted Leonard still bears an uncanny resemblance to Kansas' Steve Walsh.

Despite some weaker tracks during the second half of the album, Wounded is one of Enchant's better albums and it is overall a worthwhile addition to any collection that already holds their best album - A Blueprint Of The World.
