UMUR
"Live At Last" is a live album release by US progressive rock/metal act Enchant. The album was released through InsideOut Music in October 2004. The album was recorded at I-Musicast in Oakland, CA, on March 13, 2004. The full show was also filmed and released as a DVD.

"Live At Last" is a 2 disc release featuring 23 tracks and a playing time around 2 and half hours. At this point Enchant had released six full-length studio albums and the compilation album "Time Lost (1997)". All albums including "Time Lost (1997)" are represented on "Live At Last" with at least one track. You can always argue if the right tracks have been included, but overall there is a good flow on the album, which is further enhanced by lead vocalist Ted Leonard´s enthusiastic performance and great interaction with the audience. That man is a true professional and a great performer. In the same sentence I´d like to compliment guitarist Douglas Ott for his harmony vocals. They are spot on.

The rest of the guys are well playing too and since "Live At Last" also feature a professional and clear sound production, this is overall a great listening experience. At times the music does lack a bit of power though. Maybe it´s because the guitars lack a bit of punch or maybe some of the overdubs from the studio releases are missing and as a consequence the soundscape is slightly less intricate. This is not a critical issue by any means though and I´m fully able to enjoy "Live At Last" without thinking too much about the occasional powerless moment. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.
