"Life On A Chain" - Pete Yorn

Biography

His fifth solo studio effort and Vagrant Records debut, Pete Yorn sees the Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter peeling away the baroque orchestrations of his critically acclaimed previous work to expose a beating rock ‘n’ roll heart. Much of the eponymous album’s remarkable raw power comes courtesy of producer Frank Black, who in 2008 invited Yorn up to a Salem, Oregon studio ... Read more in Amazon's Pete Yorn Store

Editorial Reviews

With ten years and five studio albums under his belt, Pete Yorn is a stalwart in the singer/songwriter world. Originally receiving acclaim for his work scoring a Farrelly
Brother s film (Me, Myself and Irene), Yorn quickly began garnering much deserved attention for his efforts as a songwriter outside of his work on film. Having tasted success,
Yorn released his first full-length, musicforthemorningafter in 2001,which went gold and had Rolling Stone hailing him one of Ten To Watch in 2001.
Fast forward through nearly a decade and multiple musical ventures to 2010 to find Pete Yorn releasing his sixth studio album on Vagrant Records. The 11-song collection
was produced by Frank Black (The Pixies) and is comprised of raw tracks, born of shattered nerves and shifting dreams- yet edged with hope.
Recorded on the spur-of-the-moment in the summer of 2008, Yorn s forthcoming album is a self-titled piece with a plain black cover. While in the midst of tracking Back &
Forth, Yorn received an email from Frank Black suggesting they record some songs. After hopping a plane to Salem, OR, Black and Yorn set up an impromptu studio where
they created the album in a mere five days. The result is Yorn s most introspective work to date, as the self-titled album explores relationships, ambivalence and our natural
fear of the future and unknown.

The whole album is a great listen and I have been playing it almost non-stop since it came out.

And there were a couple of songs I'd normally skip on that album.

Before I write my brief-ish review, a minor aside: I would like for not just Amazon, but for iTunes, whatever, to have mp3 sales outside of the greater United States area. I know a lot of it is down to the recording companies, but come on. It's the digital age and everyone has the right to purchase media in any form they wish. Note that I write "purchase", and not "download illegally." If I like an artists' work I would be honored to compensate them for their hard work. Being able to purchase mp3s from a major distributor would just be an extension of that principle. Having to pay up to 20 USD for postage, as opposed to just paying that much for the album in mp3 is a big deal.

Ahem, having said that, and after waiting a week (or two) for my cd to arrive via international post, I am happy to have PY's new album in my possession. It's a blast, literally, the hard rock aspect I loved from Day I Forgot is there, and it's focused. Probably due to the packed recording schedule this album underwent. But it's to PY's benefit. The emotion feels more up front, and I'm just grateful that he got Back & Fourth out of his system. Not to say that I didn't like B&F, it's just a bummer to listen to sometimes. And there were a couple of songs I'd normally skip on that album. On this one, I'm happy to hear all of them in one go. On repeat.

If you liked songs like Carlos or Burrito from Day I Forgot, I am entirely certain you'd love this one. Hearing him belt out "Always" is definitely a highlight, and even reminds us that this is the guy who wrote For Nancy. It's that good. And the tempo he sets in Stronger Than makes the song one of my all time faves. In fact it's hard to pick any individual song as the best from PY, they're all good. Thematically, it's typical Pete (not that it's a bad thing).

Format: Audio CD
This is an absolutely amazing album. The raw rock, Pete's voice, and those lyrics ... sigh. The sound may be different, less processed and more natural, as well as loud, but it's still good ol' Pete. Plus the tempo seems more upbeat, which contrasts Pete's sincere yet sad words. The greatest part is there isn't a bad song. You know how there is always one (or sometimes more than one) song on a CD you just always seem to skip, well not on PY.

"Rock Crowd" will quickly catch your eye, or ear in this case. "Velcro Shoes" is another personal favorite -"Billy let's play!". Although I like "Paradise Cove I", I personally prefer the original on Back and Fourth. Other stand outs are "Future Life" and "Stronger Than."

Overall, an intense record you will find yourself still singing days and days later in the shower, car, elevator, and practically everywhere else. Thanks Pete for yet another fantastic album!

First of all I'm a big Pete Yorn fan. His first 3 albums were great which is basically a trilogy of sorts. Back and Forth and the record he did with Scarlett Johansen are fairly weak in comparison to the first 3 records. I've read how this album came about with Francis Black and PY getting together over 5 days to record some songs. The problem with this record (I bought the vinyl) is a lot of the songs sound the same - Pete starts of with a basic guitar riff, then the drums kick in etc etc. I think Pete plays most of the guitar parts, not sure as I can not read the credits on the inner sleeve as the font is so small, whoever designed this sleeve should be held accountable for bad design. There is some awful harmonica playing on one song. The sound at times sounds muddy (maybe this is what Francis Black was aiming for). For me the production and songwriting on the first 3 records is what I enjoy about Pete Yorn. All was not lost when I played side 2 - Stronger Than and Wheels are good. I'll hang onto the record it might grow on me.

Dear Pete,
Your album sounds like you woke up with jeans and a t-shirt on and said,"I am going to write a rock album for breakfast today". It is done in the most wonderful way possible. Where musicforthemorningafter and your previous albums sounded slightly delicate and intricate, "PY" filled the gap in my heart for something loud and direct. Here again you shine through with semimetephoric song writing skills and lines I wish I would have thought of first (e.g.,"I will never change you/I will only change my view").
Thank you for sharing your music. I hope your dreams come true.
Sincerely,
Thor

I am a big fan of Pete Yorn and just adored his album musicforthemorningafter. His other albums were good but nothing came close to the quality of musicforthemorningafter. The first time I heard Velcro Shoes or Precious Stone, I knew he had a masterpiece. The whole album is a great listen and I have been playing it almost non-stop since it came out. I feel the album is inspired by The Ramones and has that classic rock/punk vibe in it. Pete is one of those artists that is so good yet still relatively unknown. I think his being unknown still gives him that edge that alot of musicians lose when they become too famous. He has a real talent and I just love the album.
