Review of "Blink Of An Eye" by Amazon.de
Progressive Metal Fans may rejoice: For the next evenings under your headphones
there is some new, high-class material: After their last album, which was "only" good,
quite a few had already lost their faith in Enchant, but the Californians have
learned from their mistakes. With "Blink of an Eye" they are presenting a killer record,
which can easily live up to their earlier albums "A Blueprint Of The World" and "Wounded".
The songs are much more coherent, chunky and above all more atmospherical than the ones on
their previous album, without the prog-factor suffering from that. The Americans have made
the impossible possible: they have increased both the melody level as well as the level of playfulness.
While singer Ted Leonard creates some of his best vocal lines, guitarist Doug A. Ott elates us
with some great solos. Hardly ever has one heard such amazingly inspired guitar licks that
fitted into the songs so perfectly. Last but not least it is due to the six-string that
"Blink of an Eye" sounds like one complete piece. Great record!
