3 stars Time Lost is not Enchantīs third album. It should rather have been placed as a boxset as it includes four outtakes from Enchantīs second album Wounded and three pre-album tracks with re-recorded vocals from Ted Leonard who wasnīt in the band in 1989 when these three songs were recorded. I guess the band thought these songs were so good that they just had to be released or maybe Inside Out tired to make some money of Enchantīs succes ? Either way Time Lost is a worthy purchase and a good album.

The style Enchant play is soft progressive metal. If you like the Wounded album from Enchant Time Lost is a must as the four outtakes from that album which appear here on Time Lost are very good and they could just as easily have been on the original album. Some of them are IMO even better than the songs on Wounded but strangely enough they were cut from that album. Blind Sided is probably my favorite Enchant song from the early Enchant ( Before Break) and both New Moon and Under the Sun are also very strong compositions. Foundations is good too.

The three pre-album tracks Interact, Standing Ground and Mettle Man are all good but itīs very obvious that these are early songs from the band. Interact is too long while Standing Ground doesnīt really do much and the almost entirely instrumental Mettle Man is just an average track too.

The musicianship is very good. Ted Leonard steals the picture on Time Lost IMO as his vocals are brilliant.

There is no doubt that if you should invest in Time Lost it should be to get a hold of the first four outtakes from Wounded because even though the last three songs are good they are a bit below standard for Enchant. Time Lost will get a 3 star rating from me. Iīm not sure but I think Wounded can be purchased with Time Lost as a bonus disk and if thatīs the case I would recommend you buy that one instead of course.
