I have to admit that after listening to the original version of Parachute's "Losing Sleep" several times, the majority of songs were kind of just THERE...some decent pop background tracks to steal the silence away from doing chores at home or at work...but nothing to take too seriously.
One song did stand out from the rest for me, "The Mess I Made", and I figured that maybe some day I could download just that one. It was really the only song that sounded like it came from the heart and its melody was one that moved me. I liked the title/song topic. And while I don't quite get the connection that some people say this album has concerning another band I really like, The Fray, I do think comparisons to Maroon 5 are justified.
Its difficult to rate an album that doesn't have any certain flow to it...the songs bounce back and forth between various styles of pop and pop/rock, but I do think it's a bit unfair to label all the music as generic. If I remember...
The first time I heard a Parachute song was during a Nivea commercial. Needless to say, the song in that commercial is what ultimately turned me on to them. With a mixture of sweet vocals and radio-ready pop rock, this band is quite good. If you'd like a mixture of Maroon 5, Hanson, Rob Thomas, and a dash of Augustana then this band if for you. If not, give it a try anyway because reading a review on an artist is completely different from actually listening to them and coming up with your own impressions on them.
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
1. All That I Am - Nice slow pop rock 2. Back Again - A little peppier and delivery is somewhat Jamiroquai-like. 3. She - Slow methodical ballad. 4. The Mess I Made - very slow building 'woe is me' song. I could picture this one as a country song if some twang were added to it. 5. She is Love - acoustic and soft, a lovely song. When this first came out I thought it was Plain White T's (Hey There Delilah) 6. Ghost - faster paced, more unique guitar work on this one 7. Under Control - another with a more funkier beat, but lyrics are nothing to brag about 8. Blame It on Me - a more feel good peppier tune 9. Words Meet Heartbeats - One of my favorites from the CD, happy and fast paced, could easily picture this as a Counting Crows song. 10. The New Year - This sounds like a parody song. So overly happy and the corniest lyrics. 11. Bonus Track - Repeat of track 5, but with full band instead of acoustic. Sounds like the mixing in of the...
