AllMusic Review by

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.
