A runaway success in the U.K., EYE TO THE TELESCOPE, KT Tunstall's debut, finally hit the States in early 2006, a year after its initial release. On this assured 12-song set, the Scottish singer/songwriter mines a charmingly sensitive and intelligent vein of pop/rock that positions her somewhere in between Beth Orton and Sheryl Crow. The key to Tunstall's sound is her resonant and soulful voice, and the album's bold but never over-the-top production only serves to further enhance her songs. Though the highlights of the disc include the jangly "Another Place to Fall," the eminently catchy "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree," and the shuffling "Suddenly I See," the entire record is surprisingly solid, easily ensuring a bright future for Tunstall.

Heard "Suddenly I See" on the radio and have been hooked ever since. This album features such a wide variety of different songs and themes - some songs are upbeat and fun, like "Suddenly I See," others are more dark and abstract like "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree," and others are reflective and mellow like "Silent Sea." KT Tunstall has been incredibly talented ever since the start - her ability to play so many instruments, sing, and write her own lyrics is inspiring. I hope to see her live some day.

Amazing gifted singer/songwriter. I have been hooked ever since hearing Black Horse back in 2005. She is incredibly gifted at her use of the guitar and her catchy beats. I've seen her live a couple times and she sounds exactly the same as on cd. She's a really lovely person too. I've met her twice and she's always gracious to her fans. Her talent cannot be beat!

KT Tunstall is a massive talent. Check YouTube for her cover of The Jackson Five song I Want You Back. Amazing!
