Emilie Autumn's new record label Trisol also re-released her 2003 album Enchant (which I originally reviewed in PussyRock 2) as a limited edition with different packaging. It's undoubtedly a beautiful album, a stunning blend of Celtic/folk/classical influences that was somewhat softer and more melodic than the Victoriandustrial sound she pioneered on Opheliac. It was evocatively christened fairytale rock and the album really deserved a wider audience. However, the reissue is somewhat flawed. It still has the same track listing as the original yet was being sold for a far higher price than the normal price for single CD (around £20 in the UK). The different packaging basically amounts to a small hardcover book featuring a facsimile of her original notes/lyrics for Enchant (sadly mostly illegible) and a fairytale she wrote herself. Personally I think better value for money would have been a fold-out poster or bonus tracks/video footage on the CD.
