After her 2004 debut, Eye To The Telescope, produced three hit singles all with the same storytelling, strum-y acoustic vibe, Tiger Suit gets colourful with a whole new palette of sounds. Bold and energetic, the third full-length offering from the Scottish-born singer-songwriter plays with synthesizers, vocal echoes, looped whistling and xylophones – among other flourishes – but it feels like there’s too much going on for everything to come together as a coherent whole. Even after multiple listens, the individual tracks tend to get muddled without anything really vibrant standing out. While you’ve got to give Tunstall props for embarking on “a new musical adventure,” the stronger tracks are still those with the guitar in the forefront. While everyone loves a rainbow (she pulls it off on the upbeat Glamour Puss) sometimes less is more.
