Greg Laswell: Three Nights From Alto Nido

Greg Laswell
Three Nights From Alto Nido
Vanguard Records [2008]

Fire Drill Review:
We have been following Greg Laswell since his debut back in 2006 and it has been nice to see his musical progression. Laswell's sophomore effort Three Nights From Alto Nido leaves behind all of his personal turmoil found on Through Toledo [2006] and goes big. The production and music is bigger on Three Nights From Alto Nido which gives Laswell all of the tools to maximize his vocals and songwriting skills ultimately making this his most engaging effort to date.

Key Track: "The One I Love"

Band With Similar Fire: Coldplay
