4 stars Enid's first album isn't an instrumental album like the ones that follow this one. However, the classical/symphonic element that we know from the other albums is still there. Christopher Lewis' vocals remind me the vocals of Pink Floyd on the wall at times, but this is certainly not a rip off. This album has personality, and it's quite emothional. The compositions are still splendidly composed. For those of you who haven't heard The Enid yet, I cannot find any similiar band since The Enid is damn unique. However, you can try to imagine a classic music orchestra playing rock music or a rock band playing classic music, I still haven't decided which possibility is more accurate because both are accurate! Unfortunately, The Enid is an unknown band compared to the famous bands (YES, Camel, KC and so on), although it deserves more attention than some of those bands. In short, The Enid's first album is an excellent addition to your music collection, especially if you like your prog with heavy touches of classic music.
