Colbie Caillat - Fallin' For You (Universal Republic)

This 'Bubbly' songstress sure knows how to knock out a hit. Fresh from storming the US and assaulting the UK charts, she's back to batter the charts some more. After her light and airy debut album Coco, this first offering from sophomore release Breakthrough packs a meaner punch.

With a production team of Rick Rowels, John Shanks and her father Ken Caillat (of Fleetwood Mac fame), the offering is distinctly older. It still offers that bright and breezy feel of the first album but with a bit more oomph. Continuing in the vein of the usual loved-up mush, this is no different. For those singleton's out there, it could all be too much to bear as you float away in ethereal bliss.

The style is folksy with a voice to melt all hearts. It's a laid back, chilled and distinctly calming beat. It's a bouncy track with effortless lazy vibes to melt the day away. Lyrically slushy it is, however, sweet and extoxicating. With not an ounce of depressive tone and a funky guitar-fuelled rhthm, it's a tune to kick back with and mellow out in your sun lounger.

It's an inoffensive track and one to while away your Sunday afternoon to. Though it is essentially catchy pop, there are perhaps parts that are too sickly sweet. If you like sugary, fluffy and light then this heady tune could be what just what you've been looking for.

Rating: 4/5
