5 stars I must say this is my first Enchant CD, and the first time I listened to it I was really surprised. It's like a combination beetwen Dream Theater (without the heavy part) and Rush. The choruses are very well done and the guitar work is very good too (reminds me of Petrucci). The opening track "Sinking Sand" is maybe some of the best of the album. It's a very "soft" song with excellent guitar solos and depressing chorus. "Tug of War" is the most listeneable or radiable song of the record. But I think it repeats too much certain parts and finishes boring me. "Holding the Wind" is a similar song to "See no Evil" of "Queen of the Informed", with nice choruses. "Beautiful" is a good ballad but it needs a solo!! "Living in a Movie" has that (psychedelic?) synthethizer or a (voice?), that goes very good with the song and the lyrics. "Long way down" and "See no Evil" have amazing guitar solos again, excellent!! The instrumental "Progtology" is a very proggy track, like a combination of Rush's "YYZ" and Dream Theater's "Erotomania". It has everything, including funky bass solos and obviously guitar and keyboard solos too, VERY GOOD, guys!! The album finishes with "Comatose", a slow tempo song, in which the piano stands out. Nice to close the record. Best songs: "Sinking Sand", "Holding the wind", "Queen of the informed", "Long way down", "See no evil" and "Progtology". This is an excellent album. Any prog music lover should have it. Highly recommended!!! Rating: 4.8/5

PD: My English is poor, sorry.
