4 stars This is simply a beautiful, timeless album. Most people have one problem with Enchant: On all their albums they managed to maintain a certain characteristic sound and never strayed far from it. As a result some people miss development and "progression". But I have no problem with that - their sound is fine. It's instantly recognizable, and instead of changing their sound, they focus on writing good songs.

Oasis: This track starts with a progressive guitar riff followed by a fast and complex section for the whole band. Combined with a laid back verse with interesting lyrics, this is a nice track.

Acquaintance: This is easily my most favorite Enchant track. It's incredibly sad and melancholic. It's about a couple who date and make out and everything, but eventually don't "connect". One of the most romantic songs that I know.

Mae Dae: Nice track, but not as remarkable as the others.

At Death's Door: Another classic Enchant track, a good mixture of sizzling progressive bits and interesting melodies.

East Of Eden: Now, this is rhythmically interesting: based on 5/8 they pull off some amazing polyrhythmic ambiguities ... but Enchant have a way of playing such parts with ease, so the listener doesn't realise the complexity if he's not "counting".

Nighttime Sky: Beautiful track, reminds me of The Police, especially the drums. Again, they do quite complex signature changes with ease.

Enchanted: This is the most popular Enchant song, but like Mae Dae, I don't think it's as good as the others on this album.

Open Eyes: Interesting song, similar to Nighttime Sky.
