Overview

Sweetness rules on Colbie Caillat's debut, Coco, which is perhaps only appropriate for an album bearing that name. The record doesn't play like a toasty mug of chocolate on a winter's day, though; it's a sugary lemonade on a breezy summer afternoon. It's light and comforting, a familiar blend of sunny pop and singer/songwriter tropes that flirt with cliché but never sound hackneyed -- a lighter, brighter spin on Norah Jones that sounds like an ideal soundtrack to a few hours in a cozy coffeehouse or a montage on Grey's Anatomy, whatever comes first. If that gives the impression that Caillat is a little calculated -- and if her music-biz heritage (her dad co-produced Fleetwood Mac's Rumours and Tusk) gives the sense that she may have had a silver spoon, and if her celebrated MySpace popularity is also initially suspect -- then as an album Coco shows no crassness or coldness: it flows easily and, yes, sweetly, filled with gently ingratiating melodies and delivered with warmth and a casual charisma that proves to be quite endearing by the end of the record. Caillat doesn't attempt anything approaching a major statement -- the album is filled with songs about love and life -- but that's her appeal: she sings about simple, everyday things in an unassuming manner, letting her melodies and girl-next-door charm carry the day, and they do so winningly on this nicely mellow debut.

I don't know what the "Insane" reviewer is talking about, but Colbie Caillat does not scream and cuss. (This person may have gotten Colbie mixed up with another singer.) Colbie's music is easy-going and fun and is great to listen to when you're feeling bubbly and cheerful. If you like light-hearted music, Colbie Caillat's albums are perfect for you.

This is a great easy listening ADULT music - She DOES NOT SAY ANY CURSE WORDS. I think some dummy posted a response to the wrong artist. Pay attention next time you fool.

I saw Colbie in concert last night. She is down to earth and does not use any profanity.
