I can't help feeling that undue pressure was exerted on KT to follow up her brilliant 2005 Telescope album, resulting in a collection of half baked ideas, out-takes and alternative versions. To be fair, KT's voice has never been better, and the first 4 songs are strong enough, but after that it's pretty weak - notepad sketches instead of fully conceived canvasses - and the "acoustic" versions of Miniature Disasters and Universe and U really don't add anything to the originals. Apparently there's a proper new CD due for release soon and I hope we can see more of those bluesy vocals that start off Extravanganza so promisingly. On the evidence of a recent live gig KT has plenty of strong new material to follow.
