Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

Chakra Bleu has put together an interesting record. It’s kind of all over the map genre-wise.

Track one, “I Can’t Imagine” is moody and atmospheric, while track 2, “Seize The Day” is more classic rock, ala Jefferson Airplane.

The rest of the CD falls somewhere between these two genres but throw in some early 90s Brit pop and you’ve sort of got the idea. A bit schizophrenic, but you get an idea of what the band can do.

Singer Susanna has a deep, sultry voice that growls well with the swirling melodies.

It’s a nice recording that shows this group is quite diverse.
