4.0 out of 5 stars An impressive debut, 6 Jun. 2002
This review is from: Musicforthemorningafter (Audio CD)
Pete Yorn is a real talent who on the merits of this first offering will go far. From the opening crackling lines of 'Life On A Chain' to the closing, beautifully crafted 'Simonize' this album rarely falters. Yorn shows great competence in taking on a variety of styles yet retaining a distinctive sound. 'Simonize' could indeed be a lost Simon & Garfunkel tune whereas 'Black' sounds like classic Pavement. Multi-instrumentalist Yorn is said to write most of his songs starting with a drum beat and the presence of some interesting rythmns would suggest this may well be the case.
Comparisons to Ryan Adams have been made but Pete Yorn's sound is on the whole quite different. However, both share a similar ear for melody and pursue similar styles of music. 'Musicforthe morningafter' is undoubtedly a grower and given a few plays really comes into its own. There are stilla couple of tracks that I haven't quite got into yet but on the whole this is a very impressive debut that bodes well for the future. Check it out!
