In his first incarnation, Duncan Sheik seemed like little more than a very pretty boy with a very pretty voice -- but then he reinvented himself as the second coming of Nick Drake, scaring away a few ear-candy seekers but winning over a whole new crew of fans. On his fourth album, Daylight, Sheik stakes out yet another plot of ground, one that's slightly closer to the middle of the road but does not lack for patches of beauty. Teaming with Mick Jones -- that'd be the Foreigner guy, not the former Clash co-pilot -- Sheik shapes "On Her Mind" into a classic car-radio power ballad; with the help of longtime Madonna cohort Patrick Leonard, he brings a hip-shaking verve to tunes like "On a High." As the title indicates, the album's mood is overwhelmingly sunny, a sea change that suits Sheik's mellifluous voice well, particularly on slight but sweet confections like "Good Morning" and "Such Reveries." A few listens will help keep summer's light shining bright at any time of the year.
