I read a few reviews, found MFTMA in Orlando, FL and saw the band in Manchester, UK all within two weeks - a crash course indeed. So young, yet so accomplished. This is a magnificent debut, I only give 4 stars so I have another to play with for his follow-up! Great raspy and soulful voice, strong lyrics, very catchy (upbeat, for the most part) hooklines that'll have you humming them for weeks. To sum up, I'll risk a likeness to Ryan Adams, but less bluesy with a rockier britpop edge at times. 'Strange Condition', 'Just Another' and 'Sense' are highlights for me. Though not on the album, he performs a fabulous live version of Bowie's 'China Girl'.
Buy this CD and join Yorn on his road to success at the first stop.
