  • Summary: The New York singer-songwriter works with producer Patrick Leonard (Madonna, Jewel) for this, his fourth album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 7
  2. Negative: 0 out of 7
  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. 80
    Sheik's sparklingly clear voice and subtly tricky guitar shifts transcend the pop-rock melodies. [#10, p.126]
  3. Every song sparkles with a hook or lyrical element strong enough to permanently embed the brain upon impact.
  4. Daylight ups the electricity and the songs cleverly find their way into your immediate recall.
  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.

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

    After the dismal "Phantom Moon," Sheik bounces back with a solid set of catchy (the second or third time around) rockers and appropriate After the dismal "Phantom Moon," Sheik bounces back with a solid set of catchy (the second or third time around) rockers and appropriate ballads. Though not as affecting and immediate as his first two discs, this is a welcome return to form. Collapse
