Maybe I'm Right
Label: Red Ink/Columbia
As the completion of his 24-hour themed trilogy (which started in 2001 with Musicforthemorningafter and progressed to 2003's Day I Forgot), Nightcrawler builds on the expressive nuances of its predecessors and stands as Pete Yorn's strongest work to date. Yorn's plaintive, lonely-guy-under-a-spotlight songwriting has grown some dramatic hooks and is beefed up by major league production. The result is smart, accessible pop rock that offers something for everyone -- especially your grad-student girlfriend or Death Cab-diggin' soccer mom.
