KT Tunstall "Tiger Suite" CD - Review

Tiger Suit is the third studio album singer-songwriter KT Tunstall. This album features what she calls "Nature Techno," a blend of dance rhythms and organic instrumentation. The single "Fade Like a Shadow" has already become a Top 20 radio hit.

I have to admit, I'm not a fan of the album. I gave it an honest try and listened straight through. To be honest there is only one song that I would add to my iPod playlist - "Lost." Most of the other songs simply did not appeal to me. Here's an example of some lyrics from the song "Glamour Puss:"

"Baby juggles fire in a blindfold
Riding in a motorcycle
Through a hula-hoop but it
Sounds like dust on your record
You're showing the pressure
Of doing loop-de-loop-de-loop."
 I guess I'm just not quite hip enough. I don't envision this becoming one of my favorite albums. If you like Tunstall's previous CDs, this one might be up your alley. I tend to get annoyed by techno beats and abstract lyrics. Tiger Suit was not quite my cup of tea.

Fans of Tunstall may be interested to know that she will be on tour this Fall (10/31-12/1). She also has a website and Facebook Fan Page.
