Probably the best way to evaluate this CD is to break it down. VOCALS -- What can we say? Her voice is distinctive, soooo smooth, calming, and her singing style enhances the message of each song. PRODUCTION AND ARRANGEMENTS -- sonically clean and nicely textured, although a bit "busy" on some tracks. On some of the more upbeat songs, it was almost like listening to something by the Beach Boys, circa 60's. Most of the songs are acoustic guitar driven, and that's a big plus for me. There's also some piano and one really n-i-c-e horn arrangement. Hopefully, we'll hear more brass backing her in the future. Her greatest strength on this CD is the ballads. On every ballad, she really excels. Plus, even as she sings the songs she's written that deal with heartbreak and longing, she does it in a positive way and graciously avoids using expletives. OVERALL IMPACT -- nice, very listenable, probably the song sequencing could have better spaced the ballads and upbeat songs. If I could, I would give it 4.8 stars and "Coco" 4.9 stars. Almost as stellar as her debut, very close and certainly well worth downloading and/or buying. She's a very promising singer/songwriter and deserves our support!

Some complaints that it's not like Coco... that is true. There don't seem to be as many radio-ready numbers, perhaps only one beyond "Fallin'". But, this is a great collection of songs, nonetheless. If you like Colbie, buy this CD. Her sincerity is once again in evidence.

And, if you're going to purchase this CD, get the Deluxe edition - the five additional songs are very, very good; they're not just throwaways.

colbie says that this album is about her growing up and picking herself up breaking through laziness to offer up enouragement to her fans. I was listening to this album while painting my son's room today. I couldn't really tell one song from the other, but that mattered little to me. That would be my only complaint other than at my life stage I am in a different season than Colbie (I am much older. No matter though...her writing is very nice..doesn't always connect, her arrangements are right on. This is a great second album from a beautiful voice. This album is very friendly to the ears and heart..no cursing..disrespecting...no hating on others here. That is important to me. Thanks for a sincere and clean album!!!

Colbie Caillat's second CD allowed her to do the unlikely - top her first-time-out CD. If you liked the first one, you'll love this one. The music and lyrics are creatively written, while her sound is unique, her songs are of a great variety. I opted for the extended CD with the five extra tracks, which allowed me to enjoy more of Colbie's talent. She'll be performing in my city later this month - no doubt I'll be there.

After seeing a TV interview with live songs from the CD, i had to go and pick one up. Top #1 right off the shelf, at least 6 #1 ones. I even purchased the COCO CD which is less heart felt to me. Still OK. Very smooth and excellent vocals. Her Dad did sound for one of fleetwood macs CD's and is her i think manager? Anyway this a classic, well done.

I absolutely adore Colbie Caillat. Her debut album `Coco' has frequent rotation on my car stereo, and her sophomore album `Breakthrough' is nearly just as good. In fact, the only complaint I have here is that the album is a tad long. When you consider the style of music that Colbie crafts, it is best served in small doses. In those doses you can really appreciate her style and skill. When you drag the album out seventeen tracks then you run the risk of becoming rather repetitious. Some of the tracks tend to run together and this takes the albums appeal down a notch.

I like all of these songs, and I downright love quite a few of them, but I would have preened a tad.

I probably would have started with `Stay With Me' and `Breakin at the Cracks'. They are very sleepy numbers that are soon forgotten. They don't sound bad, but they lack any real spark. They can come across as almost lazy. Speaking of lazy, `Never Let You Go' and `Don't Hold Me Down' seem that way as well. There really isn't much thought there. They are generic and accessible and nicely crafted yet highly forgettable and uninteresting songs.

`Runnin Around' is bouncy and fun and very `surfer girl', which is why I love Colbie so much. It's far from the best on the album, but it has spunk and is totally engaging.

I love the slowed down vibe of `Out of My Mind', a song that sweetly captures Colbie's soul. Unlike tracks like `Stay With Me', this song has a sparkle in Colbie's delivery that makes it relatable and enticing. The same can be said for `What I Wanted to Say', even if it lacks a little bit of the emotional relevancy of `Out of My Mind'.

Colbie continues writing & singing great songs! The first couple songs are ok but starting with, "Fallin' For You" from then, it's all up hill! The whole album's pretty consistent in terms of great content. If I had to pick then so far my 3 favorite songs are, "Runnin' Around", "It Stops Today" & "Fallin For You". Mos def worth purchasing especially the mp3 album version since you get it asap. Only thing I'm miffed about is that the version on iTunes has 2 additional songs. Not sure if iTunes still includes DRM on each & every song so I just went ahead & got it on here. I'm looking forward to her concert here in Dallas in October! She was great the last time she was here at the House of Blues!
