I'm not one to buy tribute albums, but I really like KT Tunstall and thought I'd give this one a shot. I ended up liking this more than I thought I would.
For anyone considering this album, the first thing to know is that there are no vocals here. As the title implies, this is a guitar tribute to KT's songs, from her Eye To The Telescope album. It seems to be a one-man show, Bredsand Wonderkid, who both produced and performed all the songs. I think this simplistic approach helps the album, making it an unpretentious and yet fitting tribute to KT.
So why just 3 stars? Well, this is far from an essential purchase, and will only appeal to die-hard fans of KT. It's also not an album that demands repeated listenings - I can easily imagine this album played as muzak in a department store...not that that's a bad thing. For what it is, this is a pleasing enough listen. Just don't expect any of these songs to equal those from Eye To The Telescope.
