What happened to James Blunt? The Brit behind the overplayed 2006 hit "You're Beautiful" returns to sandwich similarly drippy ballads between revved-up numbers such as the jangly "Stay the Night" and bass-driven "Turn Me On" on his third CD. Nothing here will help Blunt overcome his one hit-wonder status. (Custard/Atlantic)
