***** - FIVE STARS

===================

If you're like me, you've probably never heard of Enchant until now. I myself didn't know what to expect, but I can tell you Enchant is without question one of the most inspiring unknown bands on the planet. They play in the vein of bands like Kansas, Rush, but have a hard / soft edge to their sound. It's highly enjoyable....

I'm amazed with the creativity Enchant displays with each and every release. They never seem to be satisfied with one specific direction. They're always pushing the bar, and with "Blink Of An Eye" they've craeted yet another masterpiece for us to enjoy....

If you enjoy great, well crafted music, buy everything from Enchant with confidence. One of the greatest unknown bands I've ever heard...

I am just completely enthralled with Enchant's music at the moment. Every album they've put out is just amazing (well, I'm not that big into "Break" yet, but other than that one...), and each album has its own unique feel. "Blink of an Eye", their fifth release (not counting "Time Lost"), is one of their strongest albums to date (and I think that's saying a lot, considering how great most of their material is). It's a bit catchier and more light-hearted than anything they had previously done, and as such might be a bit more of an "easy listen" to a new fan. At any rate, it is top notch music.
The album was released under the unfortunate circumstance of the departure of two of the band's long-time members, keyboardist Michael Geimer and drummer Paul Craddick. While this departure may worry some fans (and understandably so), there is no cause for alarm. Filling in on the keys is Phil Bennett, who was never really a fulltime member, but he filled in the space quite well. He doesn't really do anything that Geimer didn't do, but he still does an excellent job. Craddick's departure was certainly a much more significant blow, as he is not only a spectacular drummer, but he was also one of the band's main lyricists. Basically, he is pretty much irreplaceable. However, the band made a good choice in Sean Flanagan (formerly of The Truth About Seafood, which is also Slayer drummer Paul Bostaph's former band). He has a completely different style from Craddick, but he is still an excellent drummer, and he fits in really well with the band's sound (maybe even better than Craddick, although I still like his style more).
So anyway, the lineup is secure, and the guys cranked out another spectacular release.

This new Enchant is again an outstanding effort and confirms the formidable talents of all players involved. It is a logical follow-up to the fantastic 'Juggling 9...'. It does however not reach the same heights of songwriting. This is probably due to the departure of Craddick whose strong composer capabilities (think of Xen) are clearly missed. Craddick and Ott were a superb songwriting team and it is a shame that such talents have parted ways. Now all music on this album is written by Ott who does a very good job with a collection of songs that range from good (My Everafter, Despicable) to excellent (Under Fire, Prognosis, Seeds of Hate, Flatline) to astonishing (Monday, Follow the Sun, Ultimate Gift). The pure genious that popped up occasionally on the first 5 albums (think of songs like Enchanted, Look away, New Moon, The Lizard, My Enemy, The Cross, Paint the Picture, Traces) is not present here however. That's sad but understandable given the drain of talent this band has endured during the last few years (Benignus and Craddick). Moreover it seems that Ott has chosen not to adopt a drastically new sound as was done on 'Break' and to a lesser extent on 'Juggling 9'. There are no experiments on this album.
Besides the songwriting, the music also suffers from the craving of Craddick's superbly dynamic playing (the Neil Peart effect in Enchant).
Of Course there is enough talent left in Enchant: both Ott and Leonard now form the core of this band. Ott's rhythm and (typical) solo parts are always interesting and never self-indulgent and Ted Leonard's voice is marvelous and beyond compare.
This is an excellent CD but hopefully not the first sign of the (always inevitable) future decline.

This is the fifth album (sixth if you count _Time Lost_) from a band whose talent is way beyond its level of recognition. Enchant is just about the best rock band out there right now.
_Blink of an Eye_ finds Enchant with a pretty major lineup change. Gone is drummer Paul Craddick, replaced by newcomer Sean Flanegan. Those are pretty big shoes to fill -- not only was Paul Craddick one of the greatest rock drummers of his generation, but also an amazing lyricist and songwriter. He was a big part of Enchant's music.
Without Paul Craddick, what has happened? Guitarist Douglas Ott has become the main songwriter, sharing lyrical duties with vocalist Ted Leonard. Both of them had inspiration for this album...and then some. _Blink of an Eye_ is another amazing release that combines thoughtfulness, exuberance, and a careful eye for compositional detail. There's layers of guitar, layers of echo on the vocals, lots of keyboards, dense rhythms... _Blink of an Eye_ has a sound both elaborate and large, and the songwriting matches nicely. Douglas Ott synthesizes musical styles both progressive and popular into complicated, well-executed arrangements and absorbing songcraft fed from a deep well of authenticity and maturity.
Upon first listening to Enchant's latest, it may seem like nothing but exceptionally well-played hard rock with longer than average songs and a stunning singer. Indeed, Ted Leonard is not only a dead ringer for Steve Walsh, but his soulful voice is incredibly versatile, a quality immediately represented in "Blink of an Eye". From the distressing cries in the second verse, to the softened, sadly effulgent chorus, he shows some pretty darn impressive singing abilities.
Anyway, _Blink of an Eye_ is an album that reveals its brilliance without hurry.
