Album Review

Written by Ingrid Michaelson and A&R exec Marshall Altman, “Parachute” was a chart-topping hit for Cheryl Cole before Michaelson reclaimed the song and released her own version in late 2010. Far more pop-influenced than her earlier material, the song shows the full scope of Michaelson’s writing, while Dan Romer’s production proves he’s just as comfortable reshaping the rules of Top 40 radio as he is working with homespun folk-pop fare.

Customer Reviews


For anybody giving it one star because you didn't do your research, Ingrid wrote this song for Cheryl Cole. It's is INGRID'S song, and thank goodness, because she does it justice and more. Next time you pan something, do a quick Google search first. A lot of us have been hoping for a while that she'd release this on her own.

Thanks, Ingrid! Keep it up! You're beautiful and amazing.

I prefer her with her guitar and piano. I've seen her live and she is absolutley amazing! Sorry, I don't mean to hate, I just don't care for this song.
