5 stars A must, period.

Enchant is a generous band, as show on this amazing package. You get a gazillion songs on one cd, and tons of extras on the other. Since Rush R30, I've never witness such an enormous amount of input on DVD.

This is basically a best of, and a very good introduction to Enchant. The band is tight, very very tight, indeed! The bass is incredible, the guitar solos are nice and the cooperation between Ted Leonard and Doug Ott on vocals is sincerely my favorite in the new prog generation. These guys are reallly, really good singers! You even get 2 instrumental songs and 2 unplugged ones! This DVD has a lot of replay value on top of being entertaining. On the other hand, I wasn't blown away by the directing capacities of the crew, but oh well, it does not ruin the fun too much. Great sound though, crisp and well balanced!

These guys are pros, genuine, passionate musicians and vocalists. On top, they're the funniest band by far I ecountered in the rock industry. I really got stunned by the chemistry and the smiles (and many times laughter) on stage and in interviews. Finally, you have an extra proof of their savyy knowledge, they actually talk about their gears and their main influences! My favorite part! And guess what band comes on top?...Rush? Duh.

Get this, it's worth the pricy tag on it.

5 stars Enchant for me is a criminally underrated band, and mostly unknown, so it's normal for you to not buy this DVD, but it is marvelous, as Menswear said, it is a must. Flawlessness and beauty in every song, the quality is also awesome and yes, you won't regret buying this cutie.

Perfect score for a perfect performance, one of my all time favourites.

PD: I have just written a more extensive review for the album, you can read it there if you're interested.

4 stars I bought this DVD about two years ago and that was mainly out of frustration for the lack of a new release by this band. Right now we're even two years further in time and still no new album !!! I really start to worry here because we are talking about one of my all time favourite bands and the wait lasts for almost 5 years now, so what can you say ?

Fortunately this great release soothed some of the pain I suffer as this is a terrific choise of songs by this band and they also took care of a very good and pleasant bonus DVD that gives a nice insight of what the band is like and how the fans feel about them. I'm very pleased with the choise of songs eventhough some of my very favourites are missing (Nighttime Sky, Fade to grey, New Moon and Traces). On the other hand: many of my very favourites are on this DVD (Seeds of hate, Pure, Comatose and Broken Wave) so that evens things out in a sort of 50-50 score. Another nice thing is that I like almost every Enchant song so I could hardly get disappointed anyway. I always considered it the very strong point of this band: the fact they produce no poor compositions and that's why I love them.

There are a few minor aspects about this DVD that prevent me from giving it 5 stars. I think the sound as well as the picture quality leaves to be desired. It's not hopeless but I've experienced better than this. And that's a pity when it's a very favourite band and you hope for a perfect 10 and have to settle for less. But the choise of songs and the bonus DVD are all in all more important to me and make me still give this 4 stars (4,2).

4 stars What a real treat for fans as I am is this Live at last issued on DVD in 2005 at Insideout label. A good amount of pieces here, is like a best of, all clocking around 4 hours, imagine that. I'm a big fan of Enchant since thay released Break my first contact with their sound and since then I'm looking constantly on what they offer. Well, the musicianship on this DVD is high class, the band is tight and damn confident in their posibilities. Ted Leonard is one hell of a great vocalist and is showing on every pieces here and Doug Ott really know to handle the guita to creat something memorable and intresting in same time. Under Fire is one perfect example of how tight is Enchant live, absolutly kick ass. So, if you don't have this DVD get it worth every second. Enchant is one of my fav bands ever and this live proves that they are among the best in bussines even they kinda slow down a bit after Tug of war relased a decade ago. But, they are preparing for a new album soon as their web page said. 4 star for sure one hell of a great DVD.
