Pete Yorn – Day I Forgot

Glossy, glamorous Pete Yorn and his model good looks tested the bottled waters of the Hollywood star circuit with his debut disc Music For The Morning After, accompanied by a celebrity-fuelled fan club. His powered-up pop-rock style fits his image, and he name-drops so many famous folks he’s obviously banking on his connections. Songs like “Crystal Village” and “Committed” are literate, polished efforts, but Luddites who prefer a bit of hard graft might smell a marketing rat.
