KT Tunstall, 'Tiger Suit' (Virgin)

6
Tiger Suit
Critical Mass
Release Date: October 5, 2010
Label: Virgin

by Jon Young

Thanks to KT Tunstall's compelling whiskey-and-cigarettes voice, everything she tackles demands to be heard--though not everything here absolutely needs to be. An identity crisis looms on her third album, featuring fine bluesy folk echoing her early days ("Golden Frames"), a crass power ballad ("Lost"), and beguiling dance grooves ("Glamour Puss"). The standout is "(Still a) Weirdo," the only track produced by the Bird and the Bee's Greg Kurstin, a genius at crafting shiny yet idiosyncratic pop (see Lily Allen's last album). Tunstall should book him for her next record, pronto.
