With “Barely Breathing,” Duncan Sheik emerged as an energetic pop songwriter perfectly in step with the sleek sound of the mid-90s. However, listening to the textures of his 1996 debut album, it was apparent that Sheik had grander musical ambitions than just undeniably catchy pop hits. This two-CD collection, named after his musical hero, the late English folk-recluse Nick Drake’s second album, is allegedly split into two halves in order to show both the ‘pop’ and the ‘somber’ artistic side of Sheik’s career. But the ‘pop’ or ‘brighter’ side is tempered with many meditative pieces and it’s readily obvious where this songwriter’s heart rests. His previously unreleased cover of Joni Mitchell’s “Court and Spark” flows perfectly into the introspective beauty of the ‘international version’ of “Lost on the Moon” from 2002’s Daylight. Add in three tracks from his splendid collaboration with playwright Steven Sater, 2001’s Phantom Moon, and the first disc is very much a complete sampling of Sheik’s artistic range. The second disc is even moodier, adding four more from Phantom Moon and the more ethereal tunes from his other three studio albums.
