Seeing that I'm a huge Pete Yorn fan, I really won't be able say anything constructive in this thread towards most of you and your opinions. So I'm just going to keep my mouth shut and agree to disagree with those of you who weren't impressed by him.

In a way, Yorn is everything that is wrong with contemporary rock and pop. The epitome of a mediocre (but carefully packaged) soulful white boy who looks good in publicity photos, he represents something very bad and very annoying about the relationship between labels and the rock writers who make careers of regurgitating press releases

I'm not sure why this writer is so hostile to Pete Yorn. He doesn't do that much for me personally, but I don't find him nearly as annoying as some other young male singer-songwriter types I could name (cough, cough, cough, John Mayer, cough, cough, cough).

you certainly have captured the essence of tact, eh diamond?

i like him. i'll agree with nicole on this one and just disagree with you guys.

all i want to say is: there are 2 ways of stating an opinion...1) i didn't like pete live, and i'm not too impressed 2) the rude way

some people seem to forget that the way something is said can offend. you can have your opinion, just be considerate to the rest of us, please.

thank you.

wait a sec, diamond.... you're telling her it's OK that she wants to keep her mouth shut to avoid conflict, and yet you're egging her on! that's not very tactful, really.

Like stories said, there's a tactful way to express an opinion and there's just being plain mean.

Personally, I've seen more mean than I've seen tact in this thread. Very sad, indeed. How would you like it if some shmuck came in from a c*r*e*e*d board and said U2 sucks monkey balls and you all are bunch of pansies for liking their music? You'd be damned straight you'd go after the jugular on that comment. So, why does it make it OK for you to do the same?

I don't go into other boards or other people's threads and say how much I think so and so sucks when I know for a fact there are people who enjoy that person's music. To each his own, I say. But show some tact and some respect.

P.S.:

Your thread title should read "MY" verdict of Pete Yorn, instead of "THE" verdict.... because obviously, as you can see, there are several Pete Yorn fans here who would seriously beg to differ, and well, it's not the verdict for them, ya know?

Moonie-

MonkeyBalls? aw shucks

This is not an anti Pete Yorn thread.

This is only a discussion.
Most ppl take my word for Gospel though.

How does one reply to db9 without getting a sarcastic reply anyway? What higher standards are those? We both listen to U2? So are you coming down to my level for that? I don't appreciate that comment at all, wink smiley or not.

This thread needs to become something more than an argument between the pro-Yorn and anti-Yorn factions, or it will be closed.

Everyone please stay tactful. Diamond, please keep in mind that, as stories pointed out, there are "nice" and "not-nice" ways of stating an opinion. The "higher standards" statement was kind of condesending. And everyone, keep in mind that at the end of the day, he's a dude with a guitar. Just like Bono. Except not so much with the guitar in Bono's case...well, you know what I mean.

Oh, and for anyone who didn't know, I'm a mod in here now, so I'm not just yelling at people randomly.

Reread my comments.
I said he is a talented studio musician, however he isnt the best live show after seeing many different artists perform for 3 decades.


Are we clear?

thank u-

Pete Yorn-One of the best artists I've heard in the past few years, because he's "bland". Other artists I like(Radiohead, Sigor Ros, Lips) can be a bit grating after long periods of time w/ their self indulgence and extreme head music. Sometimes, it's nice to hear someone who goes straight for the heart.

ok well my two cents on this. I have seen Pete Yorn 4 times. My bosses brother manages his band. I have been a fan for about 2.5 years or so.

Now here are my thoughts M4TMA - was a great album. I enjoy it a lot. I do like a chunk of the stuff on the new album, I do not think it is nearly as good. I tend to think a lot of the songs are about the same sort of thing as the those on M4TMA. That is fine it is Pete's album and he is entitled to write what he wants. I also think that burrito is lyrically one of the dumbest songs I have ever heard. Maybe it would be cool if BNL did it, but not a singer song writer type. I know I would never put that out there, but that is me. I think he is a great musician - but I think he should put more time into his lyrics. I do not dislike this album, I think if he spent more time on his lyrics he would be awesome.

As far as my opinion on his shows. The first and second time I saw him - the venue was not sold out and I thought the shows were much better. This time around though it was more about some dumbass doing the Pete Yorn AT&T promo thing and their were banners all over the venue and that made me a little sick. I do not think I spend money on another of his shows when there are a lot better shows to see for less money.

just my thoughts
