KT Tunstall - Eye To The Telescope


KT Tunstall – Eye To The Telescope

I like this album.

KT Tunstall can write. She has a knack for being able to convey her ideas lyrically and hit on a melody that can accomplish the same thing musically. She can invent really catchy hooks while still holding on to that “something” that prevents a song from becoming a bubblegum track.

Her voice, while holding shades of other female vocalists, is unique and easily handles everything she asks it to do. She has both a very sweet quality and a raspy growl that is not really ever out of place in her songs.

Lyrically, Eye To The Telescope is clever and expressive yet very approachable. Musically, it has a very cool acoustic vibe even when going electric. The production is really minimal, but everything sounds great.

For me, the album is very intimate and very much like I think it would be seeing her perform in a small club. It puts you right there, “watching” an artist create.

Did I mention that I liked this album?
