Formerly of the Morning Glories, Christian Gibbs continues to make a name for himself as a solo performer with his second album, 29 Over Me. As befits a musician with a background including busking in London and performing in a driving rock trio, the album collects 14 diverse songs written by Gibbs. The album ranges from melodic pop like "House in a Bottle" to the dynamic mix of strings and rock rhythms on "Bruises to Claim." The eclecticism of 29 Over Me spotlights Gibbs' talents as a singer and songwriter.
