The performance is expertly recorded and yet you feel is REALLY LIVE so it reminds me of Blind Guardian Live album in that department.The amount of material is huge, but i have to say i really miss several songs! Like: King; The Lizard; Juggling Knives; Flat Line; and a LOT from the Tug Of War album.
Well, despite my criticisms i have to tell you: if you are a Enchant enthusiast..run to buy this live album! If you are new to this band start from whatever studio album you want.They are all great pieces of art.Live albums are NOT Greatest Hits, they are made for the converted, because it's LIVE(and therefore not totally polished) and many of the nuances in a song are missing and the crowd participation is also a distracting factor.
Highly recommended for Enchant fans! One of the best of the genre!
First of all, this work should be listen about three times before you can consider it. This musical banquet was recorded last year in Oakland, ENCHANT homeland. ENCHANT sounds great at studio, but when they play live they put a very special feeling that only megabands like KARNATAKA or SYMPHONY X, in their own styles, can deliver. With a big influence of RUSH, ENCHANT has been capable to develop their own musical style. Exceptional music, great deep lyrics makes ENCHANT one of the best progressive groups today. Just listen to MAE DAE, followed by AT DEATH'S DOOR or ACQUATANCE or MONDAY, one of the best songs produced by this megagroup....simply incredible...This CD is a MUST.....
It's amazing how well these guys play together, and how each member contributes equally. They're truly a great group of musicians, and hearing them play live is a wonderful experience in my opinion....
This live recording was long overdue, and it will certainly prove them worthy of the status they deserve in the world of music. They deserve to be mentioned among the very best today has to offer in my opinion....
Great set, great sound, and now one of the coolest releases in Enchant's ever growing list of masterpieces....
i mention the "Live at Nearfest 2002" bootleg because, to me personally, it's a better sounding live Enchant album than "Live at Last". i'll give "Live at Last" 5 stars since i'm a huge fan of Enchant's music, plus, there is a lot more music on this release. i love the set list, though i would've preferred a couple songs, replacing a few that were chosen.
the sound in my opinion is good, the bass in particular is actually as dominant as the guitar, which i like. the musicians as usual are on cue, though i felt the songs tempos were a little quicker than usual. could be due to time restraints or something, i'm not sure.
however, i will say that anyone like myself, who has mostly downloaded Enchant's music will be pleased that this album has all the songs lyrics listed in the jacket. i honestly have waited my entire life for a band to do this. a lot of us know that live albums are normally greatest hits and if that is the only album you might take interest in, you miss knowing the song's lyrics. i Love this concept!!
any Enchant fan will be delighted by this album, there's songs on this you might not expect to hear, good live photos from the show in the jacket, as well as lyrics, and even accustic song versions. i just can't wait for the reissued DVD of this performance!
