Prog Reviewer
5 stars Nominee for best debut album.

This is what I think, honestly: Enchant is sooo underated. From the first song you get the idea: these guys are serious. Every song has this quality, this eager to do things right from the start.

Do they hide their influences? Well, if you're a Rush fan, this is known ground. Craddick on drums is doing an especially good job, keeping the 'Peart' factor in the red zone. Ott on guitar is giving many 'Lifeson' hints here and there, and it's good to hear technique and melody together again. Platt on bass is rather shy this time, and Leonard of course, is the 'boy band' voice behind all this, but what a performance! An all-star team for sure, topping today's perhaps, since Craddick is giving a lot of writing in the band.

From all the Enchant albums I have (about 5), this is the most progressive one. With lots of songs 7 minutes and on, we have here a very, very solid staple of what intelligent art rock should be. With Juggling 9 or Dropping 10, this is my favorite. Where can you find catchy tunes, hook vocals and stunning drumming these days? Fans of high efficiency musicianship (a la Rush) will satisfy their sweet tooth and perhaps get a new musical crush?

Enchant delivers without being pretentious or being a clone.

Try it ASAP.
