CD Review: Greg Gibbs Puts On "The Lights"
The lonely sound of keyboards start off the album before the nice acoustic strumming chorus fills in, but the song never really takes off. "Wasted Plans" is a great beginning with some fun lyrics, but still lacks that full band feel. His talents finally shine through on "Slow Down" and "What I Had In Mind". The echo in his voice on "Mind" is a nice touch to give the idea of solitude. Gibbs sticks with the acoustics on "I Don't Mind" and "Most Guitars Are Made Of Trees" which become the best background sound for his storytelling pop lyrics.
Greg Gibbs was recently named Soundcloud's "Artist of the Day" in February of this year. For more information on this independent artist, visit his website at gregpoop.com.
