    You mean that you are not satisfied with the mix from a bass point of view?

    Here, here. The bass is not a rhythm instrument. That's what drums are for. LOL. JK. I think it's a shame when great bass players can't be heard. That's always been one of my pet peeves with Dream Theater. John Myung is a great bass player, like Ed, but you can hardly ever hear him in the mix. :mad:

    About three seconds into "Tug of War," I come to realize just what level of bass I want to hear in mixes!

    It's my favorite Enchant album, I love it to death so don't get me wrong here, but the mix in general is...not very good. Especially compared to the newer releases.

    They had a tiny budget, and it showed.

    Hum it's a matter of taste don't you think?

    Sure that the newer releases are more powerfull but I feel that the first album breathes more...

    I often wished for a better, FATTER production of ABOTW as well, "bassier", for sure, yeah! :)

    And I join the crowd of ranking it as by far the best Enchant album, songwriting-wise. Every single one track on it is a catcher, which for me the other albums don't contain as many of....sorry to say!

    How about a re-release with a better sound? Although I think there was one already, but has the sound not been improved on it? I would then certainly buy it again!

    Remastering can only improve the sound quality so much... I don't own the original Dream Circle release, but I've been told there isn't much difference between the newer IO re-release and the original.

    Hmm, I never bothered to look to see if Enchant had a forum on UM. NICE!!!

    This too is my favorite album. An incredible debut album. I find that it ranks at the top for debut albums with Threshold's "Wounded Land", which I recommend to everyone.

    Welcome. I think there are a lot of Threshold fans here too. Too bad about Mac leaving the band. The future of Threshold seems a bit uncertain right now. Enchant seems to be going strong though, so that's great. :headbang:
