Synopsis

Amazon.com
KT Tunstall's debut album Eye To The Telescope is the creative consequence of her inquiring imagination. "My songs examine and explore little specific emotions or situations or stories," she explains. "They're kitchen table songs, like a conversation between me and one other person. It's almost like an alien has been sent to get emotional samples from human beings and put it all together on a record." KT Tunstall Photos More You Might Enjoy

This is a fun album. I love KT's voice and her songwriting skills and singing are very sophisticated for one so young. I own her entire discography ay present, and will continue to support this fine artist. Highly recommended for those who like unpretentious rock/pop music with strong female vocals.

KT Tunstall is a "Sell Out"
Jeffrey N. Fritz | San Francisco, CA United States | 02/11/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"KT Tunstall (Is that pronounced "Katy"? If so, how cute!) recently performed in San Francisco, where I live. Unfortunately the show was sold-out and I couldn't get tickets. Although the venue wasn't large, any new or relatively unknown artist that sells out a performance in a city like San Francisco deserves notice. So I decided to check out her CD "Eye To The Telescope." (So named because her father was a physicist who took her to the observatory at St Andrew's University in Scotland.)

Her first effort is admirable. She has a taste of Bonnie Raitt, a little bit of Judy Collins and a whole lot of originality in her music. The CD is a pleasure to listen to. Each tune is different from the others on the CD, yet each manages to have a catchy phrase that sticks in the mind. It's the kind of music you can still hear long over the CD is over.

This is a good CD and an excellent first start for this talented artist."
Finally, some good music!

"I am neither young nor hip. The music that today's kids listen to is grating on my ears. I have eclectic musical tastes, and listen to everything from classical, to jazz, to folk, to rock; but I can't stand hip hop, dance music, or Top-40 pop. Give me Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Stevie Ray Vaughn, or Pink Floyd. I have no use for Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson, or Diddy. In other words, I want more from my music than a beat you can dance to and some sexy choreography. In order to get my attention, music must have some depth to it. I want substance; not just superficial flash.

KT Tunstall is the real deal. Unlike most young singers today, she's got actual musical talent. Her songs are lyrical and catchy. They have a way of getting under your skin. And she performs them perfectly. No dancing; no flashy costumes; nothing to distract you from the music -- KT Tunstall doesn't need any of that. She can sing. She can play. She can write songs. This isn't kiddie music (though she does seem to appeal to younger listeners as well as to those of us who are a bit more mature). It's good to know that someone as genuinely talented as KT Tunstall is getting recognition and commercial success in the world of popular music. Maybe we're finally starting to emerge out of the era of lame kiddie pop, hip hop, and dance music that began in the mid-1990s, and are entering a new era of quality music. (Probably not; but a guy can dream.) At the very least, I hope to hear more from KT Tunstall in the coming years."
