  • Summary: The sophomore LP for the Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter is similar in sound to his 2001 debut 'Musicforthemorningafter.'

  1. The results are just wonderful. [Sep 2003, p.112]
  2. 70
    A whiz-bang jukebox of state-of-the-art West Coast scruff-rock. [May 2003, p.126]
  3. There's nothing wrong with these 12 midtempo rock songs, but they mostly lack personality and distinctiveness. [18 Apr 2003, p.70]
  4. The album is much more conservative than Yorn's debut, and in many ways more ordinary.
  5. Although he has sensibly cut back on the droning that defined his last disc's stand-out single "Strange Condition," this release shows few other signs of growth.
  6. Apart from a voice that makes being bummed out sound almost sensuous, Yorn still hasn't developed a truly distinctive musical personality to go with his one-man-band studio skills.
  7. 40
    He name-drops so many famous folks he's obviously banking on his connections. [Sep 2003, p.97]

    If you like Pete, you'll like the cd, its more upbeat but unfortunately with less differentiable songs.

    It is ok, but lacks any orginality. I will be played in Banana Repulic stores, but have very little commercial success. He has so much hype It is ok, but lacks any orginality.
