Too much of a good thing is, well, too much. Listen to the first cut on Blue Six's Beautiful Tomorrow and you'll think, hey, this is sweet: lounge-y warm house music, toasty synth washes that cascade atop a penetrating (but not intrusive) bottom end. This is positive energy, not the seedy late-night vibes often associated with the genre and after-hours clubbing. Each track is a lofty, dreamy soundscape, one that listeners will easily succumb to. But when you fast-forward to 14 tracks later and this is what you're still hearing, you're faced with a decision: Chuck the record because it is painfully mundane as a collection, or take a song or two and put it on a mixed CD. Recommendation: Go for the latter. Beautiful Day is good stuff, but taken in small doses.
