3 stars 3.5 stars.This record consists of songs from the past, either from the "Wounded" sessions or before. Some of the older songs have been touched up a bit, and the band confesses that the playing isn't up to par on a couple of the old ones (at least up to their high standards).

Things get started with "Blind Sided" that is highlighted by the low end guitar melody that comes and goes throughout the song. "New Moon" is an old tune that is all about the great vocals of Ted Leonard. Some good but short synth work, and the song ends with an extended guitar melody. "Under The Sun" is one of my favourites on this record, opening with a gentle guitar melody, this very good song features crisp drumming, some good synth work and some great guitar.

"Foundations" opens with a keyboard passage and is another mid-paced song. "Interact" is another old song that features tasteful guitar throughout. "Standing Ground" is the first song that has some life ! Opening with heavy drums and more in your face guitar, but it's short lived, although the drumming is fantastic throughout. The final tune "Mettle Man" is the other song I really like. Lots of keys and guitar and is pretty much an instrumantal as vocals come in right at the end of the song.

Overall a good release that doesn't live up to the first two records.They originally were going to release this as an EP, but had enough unreleased songs to make it a full lenghth album. I do recommend this though, even if there isn't much variety on it, it's still ENCHANT.

4 stars Enchant is one of the few bands that hardly produces any weak songs. If there is one album of them with considerable quality- difference it's Time Lost. So I will give each song a short evaluation: 1. Blind sided: a fairly good song but not very special: 3 stars 2. New Moon: Best song of them all: 5 stars. Very good guitarwork by Doug Ott. 3. Under the sun: bit dull, not too great. 2 stars. 4. Foundations: maybe their poorest effort ever. 2 stars 5. Interact: Their longest song ever and a good one, good build up. 4 stars 6. Standing ground: interesting song, very original and catchy. 4 stars 7. Mettle man. An (almost) instrumental. Good guitar work again By Ott. 4.5 stars

So with mathematics: a slight edge for the 4 stars (3.5 actually)

3 stars Time Lost is not Enchantīs third album. It should rather have been placed as a boxset as it includes four outtakes from Enchantīs second album Wounded and three pre-album tracks with re-recorded vocals from Ted Leonard who wasnīt in the band in 1989 when these three songs were recorded. I guess the band thought these songs were so good that they just had to be released or maybe Inside Out tired to make some money of Enchantīs succes ? Either way Time Lost is a worthy purchase and a good album.

The style Enchant play is soft progressive metal. If you like the Wounded album from Enchant Time Lost is a must as the four outtakes from that album which appear here on Time Lost are very good and they could just as easily have been on the original album. Some of them are IMO even better than the songs on Wounded but strangely enough they were cut from that album. Blind Sided is probably my favorite Enchant song from the early Enchant ( Before Break) and both New Moon and Under the Sun are also very strong compositions. Foundations is good too.

The three pre-album tracks Interact, Standing Ground and Mettle Man are all good but itīs very obvious that these are early songs from the band. Interact is too long while Standing Ground doesnīt really do much and the almost entirely instrumental Mettle Man is just an average track too.

The musicianship is very good. Ted Leonard steals the picture on Time Lost IMO as his vocals are brilliant.

There is no doubt that if you should invest in Time Lost it should be to get a hold of the first four outtakes from Wounded because even though the last three songs are good they are a bit below standard for Enchant. Time Lost will get a 3 star rating from me. Iīm not sure but I think Wounded can be purchased with Time Lost as a bonus disk and if thatīs the case I would recommend you buy that one instead of course.

4 stars "Time Lost" isn't really a proper Enchant album but a selection of leftovers that didn't make it to any of the two studio efforts "A Blueprint of the World" and "Wounded". Well, as clear as the connotations of the expression "leftover compilation" can resonate in our minds and ears, the fact is that the material gathered in "Time Lost" is no time lost for the prog listener at all. The pieces bear such a musical quality and melodic ingenuity that one has to wonder why these pieces didn't gain a more defining fate in Enchant's discography: some tracks are undoubtedly and definitely more impressive and powerful than one third of each aforesaid studio effort. The writing of a couple of these songs date back from a time when neither Leonard or Platt were Enchant members; there is also 'Standing Ground', written by guitarist Ott when he hadn't entered the band to eventually become the main writer. "Time Lost" was released to promote the band's 1997 American-European tour, but it really is a valuable item for prog fans that enjoy classic symphonic prog as well as neo-prog. The longest pieces are 'Interact' and 'Mettle Man'. Their brilliance has to do with their respective extensions, which allow the instrumentalists to state fluid dialogues and interactions through the motif shifts and varying tempos. 'Mettle Man' bears only a few lyrics near the end, with the first 8 minutes devoted to explore a dynamic combination of melodic prog metal and heavy prog (originally performed by an Enchant quartet whose bass player also sang, but here it is duly performed by the original quintet). The already mentioned 'Standing Ground' comprises an effective heavy trend that enhances the main motif's hooks, as well as the impressive instrumental interlude. And I can't go on skipping the opener 'Blindsided', a beautiful Marillion-meets-DT homage to the pain of a broken heart, delivered in such a muscular manner: pure old-fashioned Enchant at its best. 'Under the Sun' finds the band efficiently exploring those dense ambiences that make the best of their dominantly romantic pieces. As always, Craddick's class and elegance on the drum kit become crucial for the song's developing scheme. In conclusion, "Time Lost" is a must for any proghead who loves their prog melodic and energetic, with moderate heaviness: it is as important as any of the other Enchant releases w/ Benignus & Craddick.

3 stars As already registered on this site: Enchant is my favorite band of these modern and heavier, but can not put this album as a highlight. Just by doing the boring mix of neo prog bands and bands sacralized more "heavy" like Rush and Dream Theater. Ted Leonard saves the album with her voice and i ... (read more)

5 stars I am sure that the album "Time Lost" of the American band ENCHANT cannot just please the admirers of the category heavy-prog, but besides these to the symphonic-prog fans, neo-prog or even of progressive metal fans , since they are disposed to leave of side (just as I did) the prejudices and ...

4 stars Brilliant from top to bottom. I consider this to be one of their masterpieces(along with blueprint). When I listen to this cd, it's one of the very few that are over before you've had enough. I know some don't care for Ted's vocals(too much like Steve Walsh), but I love the way he sings. The Tra ... (read more)
