    KT Tunstall's music is drab and boring. It was with her first album and it is with this album. I still cannot believe my roommate bought this album. And the sad part is Kate (that's right, I used your real name) believes she's actually doing something bold and inventive. What on this album is either bold or inventive? Stop trying to be a hero, Tunstall. You sucked in the KT Tunstall's music is drab and boring. It was with her first album and it is with this album.

    What about this album cover? From the absolutely terrible font to the "look at me! i rock the bass" pose, this image absolute screams "do not buy me." I would also deduct points for a completely cruddy title. drastic fantastic? how about this title: pleasy, no more cheesy. how she gets paid to do this is beyond me.

    This represents everything that is wrong with music. how in the world did this person get a major label contract? schlocky lyrics, crummy vocals and minor league musicianship. this is the album your mom would buy if she was deaf.

  1. Just when you think things are getting a bit too glossy and radio-friendly, there's a reminder of the edge that makes her such a good listen.
  2. It's high-gloss folk pop, confessional in form if not in content, crafted with intelligent attention to every detail.
  3. Tunstall has never sounded better, and the Sheryl Crow riffs and mid-tempo chick rock of 'If Only' and 'Little Favours' serve her well.
