His fifth solo studio effort and Vagrant Records debut, Pete Yorn sees the Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter peeling away the baroque orchestrations of his critically acclaimed previous work to expose a beating rock ‘n’ roll heart. Much of the eponymous album’s remarkable raw power comes courtesy of producer Frank Black, who in 2008 invited Yorn up to a Salem, Oregon studio ... Read more in Amazon's Pete Yorn Store

Product Description


There's nothing particularly wrong with Pete Yorn's second album. It's just that the effortless power-pop of Day I Forgot is pleasant enough but rarely distinctive or deep enough to demand close, repeated listens. Although it was reportedly recorded in a garage and Yorn's multi-instrumental prowess is often supplemented here by a (fuller) band, the sonic results tend toward airbrushed studio perfection.

Somewhere along the line Yorn has picked up an occasional Eddie Vedder vocal affectation. However, since Pearl Jam no longer deigns to write hits, somebody ought to show up on the radio with that voice, and "Come Back Home" could turn just such a trick. The best track here is "Crystal Village," one of those creamy pop confections easy to imagine as a teen TV show theme or prom-night favourite. Worst moment is a tie between a misguided bluesy stomp, "Carlos," and "Burrito," on which Yorn applies Vedder's voice to the tale of a 7-Eleven romance started over a shared microwaved treat. It's just a suggestion, but you may want to take yours to go.--Keith Moerer

4.0 out of 5 stars Good follow-up 18 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a good album. If you're a fan of Pete Yorn, then you probably thought that 'Music for the morning after' was unbelievably good; this isn't quite on the same level. But that's not to detract from the album: this is a strong record.
It requires quite a few listens to fully appreciate a lot of the material on here. That said, 'Come Back Home' and 'Crystal Village' are instantly likeable, great intro songs (and his vocal range is more adventurous than usual!). 'Carlos' and Burrito', although not the best rock songs ever written, are nowhere near as poor as some critics have claimed, and the two songs are probably a lot of fun when played to a live crowd. They also add to the variety of moods on the album. Personally, I love 'All at once': it has really powerful emotional content and something very soothing.
So the album is good. There are a variety of styles, but each style is distinctively 'Yornian'. If you like Pete Yorn's first album, you will like this one too.
Long live Pete Yorn!

4.0 out of 5 stars Who writes for Amazon? 10 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD
My guess is a failed Mojo writer. There seems to be a love these days for dull, non singing introspetive (non)tunesmiths such as Ryan Adams etc. The first Pete Yorn album was probabably loved for the same reason (although it did have some decent songs).
On this album he's gone one better & decided to write a bunch of pop tunes, crank up the guitars & cut (most of) the introspection out. The result is 40+ minutes of near perfect power pop (alt grunge) that doesn't outlast it's welcome

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not as good as the debut 3 Sep 2003
Format:Audio CD
This new one by Pete Yorn is a good album, although something is missing when compared to the first album. The debut stayed in my cd player for months, but this one after a month is getting bit boring. Somehow the songs of the album sound too much alike.
Anyhow if you liked the first, you will be guaranteed to like this one.
This Japanese edition adds 3 bonus tracks: good 2-minute-rocker "Drive Away", average sounding "Seventeen", and a nice cover of Elvis' "Suspicious Minds". I'm glad I got this version cheaper as I would not have payed this much to get these bonus tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Day I Forgot's Not Quite Forgetable 20 May 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a stellar album for all you Yorn fans but be sure to give the whole album several plays before making your decision... If you liked the predecessor, musicforthemorningafter, you'll like this one too! It's chalk-full of all of the usual meloncholic rawk songs - filled with love and loss - that have become Yorn's trademark. Just as the album is, the single "Come Back Home" is a grower too -- though it's not exactly up to the calibre of "Just Another". The Day I Forgot is a pretty lame title that leaves him wide open for journalistic attack and while it's not likely to be of the most memorable albums in history - it's not a write-off either. Simple songs with wide appeal.
