  • 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. Unlike its predecessor, Day I Forgot falters noticeably in spots.
  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. 40
    Unfortunately the record sports plenty of filler.
  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 for so little substance. Expand
