3 stars Second album from the heavy prog band Enchant!

Driven by the excellent Ted Leonard's vocals and the very good guitars of Douglas Ott, the band managed to make an album which has more personality and genuine ideas than their debut. But sadly, the quality of the songs is not so high in general terms and sometimes the band sounds too similar to other acts like Dream Theater.

Nevertheless, the biggest problem I find with Wounded is that all the tracks sound very similar. Sometimes is hard to discern which track are we hearing, because the vocals sounds the same, guitars too, keys too and the production is identical. That fact makes this album difficult to enjoy in its integrity and in successive playing.

Conclusion: despite its repetitiveness, derivative ideas and some lackluster songs, Wounded is a good album, which will surely delight heavy prog fans thanks mainly to the great vocals and good instrumental work.

Best Tracks: Below Zero (impressive vocals), Pure (a fine mid-tempo) and Look Away (great chorus and beautiful vocal melodies)

My rating: ***

The Crow | 3/5 |
