I have put off writing this review for far too long, and now is the time for me to do it!
I first heard Pete Yorn in 2002 when I purchased the Spiderman soundtrack and heard his song 'Undercover'. I was amazed by the track and I just knew I had to buy the debut album of this virtually unknown bloke.
The album was nothing like anything I had listened to before. It quite literally is music you can listen to on any morning. With laid back tracks such as 'Lose You' and 'Sleep Better' mixed in between up beat ones such as 'Murray' and 'Black', the album has a brilliant playlist so much so that you don't ever have to skip a track.
If you have ever seen the films 'The Sweetest Thing' or '40 days and 40 nights', you would have come across the song 'Strange Condition', which I feel is one of the best and well written songs on the album. You'll never grow tired of it.
I have no favourite track on this because I love them all too much, but if I was forced to choose one, it would have to be the simply beautiful 'On Your Side'. The lyrics and melody are just so simple, no one would ever think to have done anything like that. But Pete has. Pure genius.
