Wow, this was an amazing album! The songs were fun, upbeat, and expressive. I especially loved "Come On, Get In." I did really love "Eye to the Telescope," but I noticed that it had a lot of slower songs, and I prefer her more upbeat songs. I also just discovered how multi-talented KT is. She plays like five types of guitars, two or three types of keyboards, piano, flute, and whistle, AND she beatboxes, AND she sings, AND she writes her own lyrics. That is just inspiring.
"I'm gonna tell you the truth", KT Tunstall declares at the beginning of this album. And, for the first time since her debut, she does. On this album, she sings from the heart about fame, celebrity, and spirituality. She also packages her truth in catchy songs that are fun to listen to (though, unlike on "Drastic Fantastic", she doesn't always write within the lines of radio pop). This album doesn't quite sweep you off your feet the way "Eye To The Telescope" did. But after the inoffensive mush-lyrics of "Drastic Fantastic", it finally feels like KT Tunstall is being honest with us and, more importantly, herself.
This has to be my favourite album that KT has put out to date. If you want a really upbeat album, you want Tiger Suit. It's fearless and fun. It's also a departure from KT's usual sound but she is able to incorporate her acoustic talent beautifully. I've seen her live on several occasions and she sounds exactly as she does on cd. Tiger suit is a real treat!
