  1. The silky-voiced folk-popster successfully rocks up his sound on his fourth album, adding a polite but firm electric edge. [20 Sep 2002, p.106]
  2. Daylight ups the electricity and the songs cleverly find their way into your immediate recall.

    Sheik's sparklingly clear voice and subtly tricky guitar shifts transcend the pop-rock melodies. [#10, p.126]
  4. Every song sparkles with a hook or lyrical element strong enough to permanently embed the brain upon impact.
  5. Luckily, even with the changes, the Sheik mystique remains and makes this album a worthy new addition to his repertoire.
  6. 60
    Sheik... seems uncomfortable with the slicker presentation.
  7. A handful of pleasant, tuneful pop songs guaranteed not to disturb the peace.

Though not as affecting and immediate as his first two discs, this is a welcome return to form. Full Review »

    As with any Duncan Sheik effort, to really appreciate the record, patience is of the essence.
