Album Review: KT Tunstall's "Tiger Suit"

Having been a fan of KT Tunstall's music in the past, I was excited for the opportunity to review her latest album, Tiger Suit. The multi-platinum, Scottish-born singer debuted her third album in stores earlier this month and the result is a very unique sound with a bit of a departure from her previous work.

Classifying this new style as "nature techno", KT manages to blend dance rhythms with a raw, edgy vulnerability for a music genre all her own. In my opinion, many of these songs don't fit a mainstream radio mold, but for those who long for something a little different than the norm, this record fits the bill.

I'll admit that I prefer some of KT Tunstall's earlier work over the new style set forth in this album, but there are still a few tracks worth listening to. "Lost" speaks to the complications of being blinded by love. Also, "Uumannaq Song" and "Come On, Get In" have a great beat that make you want to get up and dance.

You can check out KT's official website, Twitter or Facebook for more information on tour dates and where to buy her album.
