My Review:
"Tiger Suit" is KT Tunstall's third studio album. Now, I can't say I am a huge fan- though I have heard previous albums. But this one really impressed me. All 11 tracks were a pleasant surprise. Anyone who enjoyed her previous two albums will dive right into this "Tiger Suit."

This album only proves that KT is a vivid artist- not caring that her melodies aren't radio-friendly. Don't get me wrong, they're cozy and smooth... they make you want to sing along. I have to say, I was a little nervous about listening to this CD because I read that she had a "new sound" and I was partial to her other music... but it did not disappoint me. There are songs with emotional intensity, quirky ballads, catchy choruses and every song has its own unique touch.

I have to say something about the case itself too. The artwork is fun and creative. The CD itself is black with a rainbow tiger face on it and there is more imaginative work (and lyrics) in the booklet. I love it! (So, buy the physical CD, not just the digital download!) 

I really enjoyed this CD. Definitely won't be one I play over and over, but I'm keeping it for when I'm in the mood... perfect music for a bubble bath or just relaxing.

Listen to clips from Tiger Suit or purchase it at Amazon.com!
