Enid. The - The Spell (1985)

The ninth album from this British band.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, synths, keyboards and vocals.

They had help from some guests who provided percussion, bass, guitars, keyboards and woodwind.

The Enid is a band who operated somewhere between classical music and rock. They were far more out there in the classical music landscape than for example ELP.

The Enid was a band with some very eccentric personalities and musicians too.

We get the usual classical music piece here and some rather eclectic pop and rock with some folk music and music hall influences.

Eccentric, indeed. Eclectic too.

Sometimes, The Enid hits the target and the result is a good or even a great album.

The Spell sees the band not really hitting the target. Some of the music is rather good and some of it does not really work. 

It is still an interesting album and one to check out. 

2.5 points
