KT Tunstall, 'Drastic Fantastic' (Virgin)

6
Drastic Fantastic
Critical Mass
Label: Virgin

by Michael Endelman

With a bit of Chrissie Hynde's swagger and some of Dido's pristine vocal appeal, this strummy Scot created the estro-pop album of '06 with Eye to the Telescope -- heard in countless Hollywood romcoms and TV dramedies. The follow-up proves Tunstall is no fluke: Her effortless melodies drive jaunty power pop ("I Don't Want You Now") and fingerpicked coffeehouse folk ("White Bird"). But it also makes clear that Tunstall's glaring faults -- dull lyrics filled with pedestrian phrases -- aren't fleeting, either.
