4.0 out of 5 stars Talent + a cute nose = long career., 9 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Drastic Fantastic (Audio CD)
Bob Dylan once said he's never influenced by artists under the age of 50.While i'm not quite that discriminating i must admit i very rarely explore bands or singers without them having a handful of albums behind them to fully judge their longevity. In the same way it's said everyone has a book in them the same could be said for albums.I'm sure everyone could write a dozen sets of lyrics, steal some tunes and hit the charts.That doesn't guarantee any of them would be any good of course and hence my reluctance to join the fanclubs of every new sensation. Miss Tunstall however is the exception to my rule.
Having been tempted by the excellent "Eye to the Telescope" this offering proves Kt has talent in bundles(and my faith isn't in vain). It's not a direct copy of her debut which some reviewers seem to think of as a negative issue, but instead sees her grow and mature as a songwriter and performer. Drastic Fantastic still contains the hooks to drag the listener in (like Suddenly I See did originally).Songs like Hold On, Hopeless, Saving My Face and the irresistable I Don't Want You Now bristle with feeling and attitude and had me tapping my fingers on the very first listen. But Kt also has an emotional depth very few contemparies can match.Here tunes such as Beauty of Uncertainty and Someday Soon come into their own growing in meaning and importance with every new play. Drastic Fantastic is another 11 songs to add to what i believe will become an amazing body of work.If Miss Tunstall can continue producing such a standard can you imagine how extraordinary her Greatest Hits Package will sound in about a decades time ? And for once i'll be able to say i was there (almost) at the start! Now did i mention her cute nose ...
