    An album that has managed to maintain the brightness of the previous Caillat could lead us to a state of calm, in all its tracks can see the soul of the artist, the instruments very well applied is the highlight of the CD.

  1. It's a creation that's slicker and sleeker than the debut, but fortunately, it's not quite at the expense of Caillat's simple charms.
  2. Caillat has a fine voice--clear and ringing, with a hint of a rasp--and she can write hooks. (She co-composed every song here.) But the simpering puppy love grows wearying over 12 tracks, especially because Caillat fails to convince as a romantic heroine.
  3. To the extent that the production and arrangements mask Caillat's inadequacies as a writer and performer Breakthrough is a marginal improvement over her debut, "Coco."
