KT TUNSTALL / Eye to the Telescope (2006)

KT spent time as a busker, and there are a few tracks on Eye that carry that sense of vibrancy and foot-tapping infectiousness that the very best buskers seem to possess. The rest of the tracks are either competent Folk-infused Pop songs or almost-filler that lacks the primal strength that a voice in harmony with an acoustic guitar can bring. I skip some and adore the rest. Her performance on Jools Holland's Later highlights how talented she really is. Check out the Black Horse & The Cherry Tree link below to see exactly what I mean.
