Album Review

Although perhaps more progressive than metal, this album still seems to fit fairly well into the prog metal genre. The musicianship and song writing on the CD are quite accomplished. Elements of many textures seem to pervade, including the occasional Yes or UK influence. However, the predominant tones are Queensryche, Dream Theater, and Rush. The drum work, in particular, is quite Rush inspired. The vocal stylings are very original and strong. One highlight of the disc is a guitar interplay section between Douglas Ott and guest player Steve Rothery of Marillion. Enchant is the aforementioned Ott, Ted Leonard, Michael Geimer, Paul Craddick, and Ed Platt.

Customer Reviews

A well produced effort

Most people talk about how much they absolutely love the album they review. I also fall under this category yet I find myself loving this album purely from a progressive standpoint. Though the music isn't as heavy or as heavy with time changes as bands like Dream Theater, the music does well to stand out on it's own. The lead singer's voice does not become annoying and the music never feels overproduced. If your looking for a progressive band that does it a little different than most, this album is definitely worth it.

Foundation is Set, Then Improved Upon...

Truly one of the best progressive bands out there. I got hooked with this album and have followed them ever since. Clean sound and vocals. Creative, and timeless (songs you can listen to a few thousand times and not get tired of). Their style has changed since this album (like a good bottle of wine does with age), their sound is richer and less frenetic. Juggling Nine or Dropping Ten and Blink of an Eye are epic albums which showcase Enchant's ability to adapt and progress with age. This album is a good place to start, but soon you will become “enchanted” and want more...

What a find!!!

I was just browsing through the ProgRock area of rock and saw a band named A Blueprint for the World. I thought it interesting and checked out a few of the songs. I was mesmerized by their sound hearing the influence of many of the great Progressive rock bands then and now. These 5 men are definitely virtuosos withtheir instruments. Why haven't they received the recognition that they deserve. I did search for them on the internet and found out that A Blueprint of the World is the name of their latest album, and the bands name is Enchant. The listing is wrong in iTunes. That aside, as musicians these guys are as good as those who made stadium stardom

Biography

Formed: 1989 in San Francisco, CA

The origins of San Francisco neo-prog band Enchant date back to 1989 when Doug Ott (guitar and vocals), Michael "Benignus" Geimer (keys), and Paul Craddick (drums) first came together. Over time the group created several demos while filling out their lineup. They added Ed Platt (bass) and Ted Leonard (vocals) to do just that. Such was the grouping that recorded the debut album A Blueprint of the World in 1993. Two years later, the band released Wounded. They followed that one up in 1997 with Time...
