Ted Leonard is the lead singer of the American progressive rock band Enchant, who have been recording music since 1995. Fans of the band need not fear that Leonard is quitting the band though. Leonard reports that this is rather an opportunity he has awaited for some time to "make an album for God alone and inspired by my convictions." "I've always felt a specific calling to speak to the 'lukewarm' and to the self-righteous (God help you if you're both) so there is definitely a common theme throughout the album." What emerges from this inspiration is a collection of 14 songs, varied in style which rewards repeated listens. Leonard's versatile voice is strong and is intense as it rocks on "Submerged", funks a la Stevie Wonder on "Who Do You Say He Is" and gently emotes on "Just For Me". On drums he is aided and abetted by Enchant percussionist Sean Flanagan, but chiefly Spock's Beard's Nick D'Virgilo. Apart from keyboards, Ted claims to be responsible for all "other noises". The album is strong on guitar work and stylistically varied. He even delves into his band's back catalogue with new versions of "Hold The Wind" and "See No Evil". Listening to this CD, one cannot help but hope that this man feels the need to repeat his "God alone" solo ventures soon and often. Highly recommended.
