If the title of Chantal Chamandy’s latest album didn’t clue you in, here’s a little hint about what the songs are all about: love.
The Montreal-based singer/songwriter has a great voice yet, when every single song uses the sledgehammer of subtlety to drive home how great love is, it becomes tiresome. To her credit, Chamandy tries to mix things up by including some French lyrics and a menagerie of musical backdrops but the songs still have the tendency to bleed together.
Ultimately, this album is just like a bologna sandwich, You can dress it up however you want but it will always be what it is, and your enjoyment of it will depend on how much you enjoy bologna, or Chantal Chamandy singing a lot of songs about love.
