Parachute is the latest 2013 band to fall into the programmed instrument and poppy songwriting trend. This band however had a unique previous style with great istrumental arrangements and powerful vocals so the change in style to a poppier setup is an especially hard pill to swallow here. This album has a few pluses, it is very fun and catchy, and there are some gems to be found here. But too many times I wonder during this album whether or not I'm listening to Parachute or Maroon 5. And the overproduction takes away some of the emotional aspect in the vocals. Overall, this could be a lot worse but I'll stick to The Way it Was and Losing Sleep.

Parachute make an album that wants to please everyone by creating pop hooks with a dash of blue
eyed soul. Most of the album works off of the lead's soul driven vocals featuring fun tracks like
"Overnight" and "Meant to Be". Parachute's charm is still in tact with their talents in making
soft ballads feel personal and touching. It's a step in a mixed direction for the band. But it's
still a fun album to have playing through your car's stereo.
