For every exhilarating single (his lone hit, 1996’s ”Barely Breathing”) or worthy experiment (his blatant Nick Drake homage, 2001’s Phantom Moon), Duncan Sheik makes an album like this one: a set of airy, overly fussy pop in search of hooks and edge. The anti-Bush title track of White Limousine and the ticked-off ”Shopping” try to add anger to his repertoire, but Sheik’s feather-duster voice only works best when he’s conveying abject romanticism. Most of White Limousine drives right out of your head as soon as it ends.
