4 stars Choosing where to place Enchant in the archives must have been a hard job cause listening to this album, which is my first and only contact with this band until now, you can easily see elements of metal, art rock and neo prog. I must say i got really impressed with the creativity and the good musicianship in this album. The opening track "Sinking Sand" is a fantastic beggining with catchy guitar riffs and pretty loud bass line. The title track "Tug of War" calls attention to it's guitar work, with very agressive and metal-oriented riffs.

As already said in other reviews it's impossible to deny that this is very Dream Theater influenced, but don't think this is one more copy of them. They have a very strong own personality and unique sounding, helped a lot by the voice of the vocalist Ted Leonard which is a very talented singer. But his voice may cause in some people a LaBrie/Geddy Lee effect, cause it is , at some points, too mellow. Fact that may do some of the listeners to enjoy less than others.

This album, as a first contact with the band, will surely make you get more into the band's work and it's absolutely sure that this is a great addition to any proghead music collection.
