EDITORS’ NOTES

Self-produced and recorded in a former church in Maine, Landline is a massive-sounding album of adult pop that features a number of special guests, from Sara Bareilles on the opening track, "Come Back Down," to Laswell's wife, Ingrid Michaelson, on the title track. Laswell hits a musical groove that takes Coldplay's atmospheric grandeur and filters it through his own lyrical concerns, where life is there for the inspiration and the emotion. "Another Life to Lose" is deeply gripping. Elizabeth Ziman joins Laswell for the dark and ominous "Back To You." Sia turns "Dragging You Around" into a radio-ready pop tune. "New Year's Eves" has that misty and reflective (but meticulously produced) vibe that many listeners will recognize as the style often heard on NCIS and Grey's Anatomy, where Laswell's music has been featured in the past. This version of the album includes the bonus track "She Tears It out of Me."

Fantastic!

Different and fantastic

This is a gorgeous Greg laswell album that on the first couple listens I've had so far, takes a slightly more upbeat and pop-centric approach than previous albums. He sounds great solo but some of the greatest songs from this album feature uniquely beautiful duets with talented singer/songwriter female artists including his wife Ingrid Michaelson. One of the most catchy songs would have to be Dragging You Around by featuring Sia. All in all, a great buy for the price!
