article imageReview: Heffron Drive's Kendall Schmidt delivers on 'Happy Mistakes' CD Special

By Markos Papadatos     Sep 10, 2014 in Music
Big Time Rush's Kendall Schmidt has released his debut album "Happy Mistakes," as part of his duo Heffron Drive, with Dustin Belt and it is an exceptional CD.
It opens with the uplifting electro-pop title track song "Happy Mistakes" and it is followed by the single "Parallel," the latter of which was described by Digital Journal as a soaring track.
"Division of the Heart" is up-tempo and pure ear candy thanks to its infectious hooks and synths. It is a song that fans can clap along to during their live shows. "Had to be Panama" has a smooth and laid-back vibe to it.
The optimistic "Nicotine" is one of the finest tracks on the album, thanks to its impressive lyrics. "I'm not giving up for nothing, no they tell me I'm dead, if I don't leave you alone, Like nicotine," Schmidt sings.
Following the interlude, it immediately breaks into the "Art of Moving On." Other noteworthy tracks include "Passing Time" and "Could You Be Home," the latter of which has a haunting effect on the listener.
"That's What Makes You Mine" is a soft and soothing vocal performance that would be a fitting lullaby. Their 11-track album closes with the bittersweet ballad "Everything Has Changed."
The Verdict
Kendall Schmidt's new Heffron Drive CD Happy Mistakes garners an A rating. It is an eclectic mix of refreshing electronic songs. Dustin Belt is superb on backing vocals and guitar, and he compliments Schmidt quite well.
