"When I bought Under These Rocks and Stones, I listened to it non stop for months.. until I saw Chantal live. After that, listening to her on CD was not the same. NOTHING compares to Chantal live... just her and her piano. This CD, however, awakens in me the feeling I had when I first heard "Under..." It is SO good to hear Chantal again performing new songs. She is a consumate song writer and the songs on this CD are exceptional. Still, I long to hear just Chantal and her piano, and I hope she tours again soon and performs the same incredible duet (Chantal, piano). Please, please, please release a live CD of Chantal. She needs no additional accompaniment and is nothing less than extraordinary live. I love hearing her songs as they were born, just Chantal's voice and that beautiful piano. Aside from that... this CD is fantastic, and I am so pleased to get the bonus CD. I was not expecting it, and "Feels Like Home" is worth the price of the whole CD. Thanks again, Chantal!"

"I first saw Chantal Kreviazuk in 1997 at the NAC Opera in Ottawa opening for Amanda Marshall and I was blown away by her beautiful voice. I rushed out to buy her cd "Under These Rocks and Stones" and fell in love with it. Now, with her second cd "Colour Moving and Still", Chantal Kreviazuk proves she's one of the most talented singer/songwriters to come along in a while. From the meloncholy "Blue" to the hit single "Before You", Chantal has created an album of true beauty that will definately find a place in your heart. Definately one of my favorite albums."
Take a good listen...

"I just snagged a copy of "Colours - Moving and Still" which is Chantal's second release... Very, very cool. The way she crafts her work and then delivers it is very effective. It's as though she disconnects her voice, then tosses it up like a net to snare higher notes... and snags you along with them. Very clear, true and moving delivery. The lyrics and music are at once clever and poignant, without getting too heavy in either direction. (I can't stop singing the bridge "Ever since I met you on a rainy Monday, I can't believe how much I love the rain..."). The way she quietly introduces a song, builds upon and intensifies it's strength, then brings it on back down (as if to get your attention again) is cool. It reminds you that she's trying to tell a story here... and it's worth a listen.Needless to say I'm impressed. And to think I bought the first CD on a whim after seeing a brief interview then video of her on Much Music. A gamble that paid off..."
