The beautiful Chantal Kreviazuk, a former child prodigy from Winnipeg, Canada, has created a masterpiece. Her second album, "Colour, Moving, and Still", blends the soft pastels of life's musings and still beauty with the bright hues of moving pop. While "Dear Life" and "Before You" were deservedly big hits in Canada, it is the spine-tingling, strikingly gorgeous melody of the album's opener, "Blue", that has Chantal at top form. The sweetness of her voice and her reflections on life's struggles will fill your eyes with tears. While 1999 produced some gems, such as Dido's "No Angel" and Travis' "The Man Who", Chantal Kreviazuk's "Colour, Moving, and Still" reaches a finger's-length further into the realms of brilliance. I am overwhelmingly delighted to see that it is finally available in Britain. A must-buy.
