Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 10/9/98, p.84
"Sheik hasn't abandoned the crafted folk-pop sound of his '96 debut; he's added more atmospheric lushness....Despite some overworked, smarty-pants lyrics, it's a lovely mesh of sense and sonics." - Rating: B+

Moving beyond the sensitive, progressive mission statement of his self-titled premiere, Duncan Sheik's follow-up, HUMMING deepens his sonic message, maintaining the up-front intimacy of the first album while adding further layers of sound. Reuniting with production luminary Rupert Hine, Sheik remains every bit the vulnerable poet; HUMMING, however, finds him donning the mantle of seasoned professional. On the opener, "In Between," orchestral arrangements swim in and out of the song's central, acoustic core, including a piano part reminiscent of mid-'80s Talk Talk. "That Says It All" is an earnest paean to his heroes, namechecking his inspirations, including the requisite nod to Nick Drake, an undeniable touchstone (and a flattering comparison) for Sheik. The songwriter's development is driven home by the album's closer, the meditative, jazzy "Nichiren."
