Drastic Fantastic (Bonus Tracks)
by KT Tunstall
Released: Sep 2007
If the KT Tunstall of "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" sounded like the kind of girl you'd like to get to know better, the Scottish singer's second proper studio album takes the relationship to the next level. Except for the last three tracks, which indulge her darker, more introspective tendencies (check the Stevie Nicks-ian vocals on the weary "Beauty of Uncertainty"), Drastic concentrates on the feisty pop end of Tunstall's pop-folk label. "White Bird" is "Black Horse"'s quieter cousin, but "Hold On," with its interesting blues guitar sample, is its direct heir.
