    I was never particularly into KT Tunstall but saw on Later with Jools Holland last year and decided I'd check out her latest album which at the time was this, "Invisible Empire". The record is very folky and not as pop as some of the other songs I've heard from her in the past. Its very well recorded and highlights her excellent voice. There are a number of really good songs spread among several others which drift along without doing much and to be honest I was far more impressed with her live performance on Jools Holland than the record. Still, its well worth checking out if your into female vocalists and folk with a bit of a twist. Collapse

    While this album is very much different compared to her other releases, Invisible Empire Crescent Moon has a special heart both in my music library and heart. The track "Made of Glass" is a masterpiece. Literally everyone that I have asked (sometimes forced) to listen to the track finds it very appealing and comforting. The set is also very balanced musically speaking. There's rock, folk, piano, ballad, power, just everything in this magnificent release. Expand

    There's a soft Americana influence here, and in a way it's reminiscent of early Big Star. [Aug-Sep 2013, p.100]

    This is an album Tunstall likely needed to make, a catharsis in song that would inevitably sound far removed from her first three efforts.

    Despite using occasional strings, steel drums euphonium, woodwinds, and even a mellotron, this is not a slick affair.
