Canada - Full Moon 82 - 06/14/03
Annabelle Chvostek's album is very nice. Her songs are clever and lyrical. The cabaret-styled
"Voyons Donc" opens the album on high note. "In the Movie" has incredibly poetic lyrics and a
simple but sweet meoldy. The use of Andrew Schinasis' alto sax creates a nice interplay with the
"Sirens" is a mesmerising song with a siren-like lead vocal at the centre. The jazz-influenced
"Holy" is a beautiful piece that really shows Annabelle Chvostek's talent. "Blood Love Stone" is
a touching mediataion on loss and prejudice. The scat singing on "Gamble" is inspired as well.
Water is a rewarding experience and is almost as necessary as water itself is.
