Best thing since Jeff Buckley!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Musicforthemorningafter (Audio CD)
Pete Yorn's debut album reminds me a lot of 'Grace' by Jeff Buckley but not for the usual reasons. Pete Yorn's voice is nothing like Buckley's, in fact he reminds me of J.Mascis from Dinosaur Jnr. However, it is his mixed up style of American folk and country meets British indie and pop that I believe is similar. Both crooners were obviously die-hard Smiths fans. As well as the pure joy and excitement that this album contains. I really haven''t heard anyone else that sounds as in love with their craft since 'Grace'. I hope that Pete Yorn can continue to make such astounding music into the future. I predict that this album will be a real slow burner but don't be surprised to see it on many a rock critics end of year list. Standout tracks include 'Song For Nancy'. What a corker!
