The Oblivion Particle is my most listened to Spockís album. Then The Light. I donít have the 4 NdV-led albums though.


I liked Feel Euphoria when it was released but I've since soured on it. They were trying to find their legs 
post-Neal and it shows. 
I've only listened to Octane once and it didn't do much for me. I should try again
Spock's Beard (2006 album) has some very strong songs on it. This one feels like they finally started to truly find their own voice.
I think X is fantastic. It's my favorite of the post Neal Morse era. It has an epic feel to me that was (on the whole) missing on the few previous albums.

I'm torn on Leonard in this band. Not sure he's the right fit. However, SB continues to grow musically and that's a good thing.

I really don't know what I prefer older material from Enchant or their later material more I`ll have to play some early enchant again and see, I've mostly been playing their later material lately and really enjoying it, Juggling 9 or dropping 10 and Tug of war and their double live CD 'Live at last'.

Blueprint and Time Lost are fantastic. Wounded is solid. After that, things started changing. I like the early albums best.

The Enchant box set is on InsideOut Music . Struggling to hyperlink it so you will have to just find it yourself.
It's a very nice set and quite a chunky booklet comes with it. I've played the debut album (very good maybe 4 stars) and look forward to gradually working my way through the rest.

OMG it's a mirage.
Anyway it's called A Dream Imagined 
Ltd Edition Box Set
the label says 
''The complete collection of all 8 studio albums including two discs with additional bonus tracks!''
I haven't opened it yet. Perhaps a clown will pop out..

I didn't see any 10 cd box set for Enchant listed on this website. It's not on the wikipedia page either.
When you list all the qualities that you despise and you realize you're describing yourself.

I started this poll, I feel Ted Leonard was at his best singing for Enchant but I really like what hes doing now, it's great just to hear him sing with such a great musical progressive band like Spock's beard

Enchant for me, Juggling 9 or dropping 10 , Blink of an eye or even their debut are above anything Spock's Beard released, or at least after  Snow album
