I have to admit that when I hit PLAY on this one, I really wasn't excpeting much...at all. I mean I LOVED Pete Yorn's debut record, but have been less than blown away with his stuff since then. And the only thing I had heard from Scarlett Johansson was her far from thrilling album of Tom Waits Covers.
But what would life be without the plesant surprises? The nine tracks on 'Breakup' are some of the best Pete Yorn stuff I have heard in years, and the harmonies between the two really work. Is it the album of the year? Probably not, but still really good.
