There is a debate about whether Time Lost should be considered a proper original studio album by Enchant or instead a compilation featuring improved versions of older demos. Regardless of which, Time Lost contains some of Enchant's best ever material and also some of their most progressive. Indeed, this is the album that is closest in style to the band's excellent 1995 debut A Blueprint Of The World - and this one is very nearly as good! Insofar as it is true that some of these songs were discarded from the band's second release - 1996's Wounded - it is very odd as most of these songs are much better than most of those found on Wounded.

Time Lost features seven tracks, most of which are fairly long with the 80's Rush-like Interact exceeding the ten minute mark. Picking out highlights this time is hard since all of the songs are equally powerful. The musicianship is very strong throughout and the sound quality is up to par with that of A Blueprint Of The World, though less good compared to Wounded.

I'm not alone in praising Time Lost - many fans seem to have a soft spot for this album. If you are new to Enchant you would do best by starting at the beginning with A Blueprint Of The World. If you like that album, Time Lost is an excellent companion and a great set of songs in its own right.
