All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
Parachute makes no attempt to hide its commercial aspirations, and Losing Sleep finds the band channeling the same blend of piano balladry, mainstream melody, and pop
ock catharsis championed by groups like the Fray. Even so, many of the songs comprising this debut album are relatively old -- some of them penned nearly half a decade before the album's release -- meaning Parachute isn't riding the Fray's coattails as much as claiming a long-deserved spot in the renewed soft rock scene.

Even so, many of the songs comprising this debut album are relatively old -- some of them penned nearly half a decade before the album's release -- meaning Parachute isn't riding the Fray's coattails as much as claiming a long-deserved spot in the renewed soft rock scene.

Every move here seems to be made with Top 40 radio in mind -- from the autumnal, Sunday morning strut of "She For Liz" to the Maroon 5-styled funk of "Back Again" -- but ambition is good for any young band, and Parachute is talented enough to warrant the starry-eyed approach.
