4 stars The band Xen is actually some kind of joke because it's actually Enchant, only difference is the lacking of "Benignus" as a keyboardplayer. Still it's a bit different from Enchant and that is in the style of playing. It's more relaxed, almost easy listening at times, but of course recognazible as a kind of Enchant. Another thing they have in common with - and what is distinctive to - Enchant is that there are no poor songs on this album. It's one of the main reasons I like Enchant (and also Xen) because it proves that a band takes themselves seriously and set a high standard for themselves and I think that's admirable.

Only downside on this is that there neither any great highlights where the songs are concerned.

Overall performance is very good though so I think they deserve 4 stars. Recommended (of course) for Enchantfans.
