KT Tunstall | WAX
According to Quentin Harrison: “As the LP’s primary songwriter and conceptualist, Tunstall executes all of WAX’s eleven tracks flawlessly. Whereas KIN kept its melodies lockstep with its rock rhythms, WAX inverts this method, maintaining melody, but letting the rock rhythms lead. Again, Tunstall’s ability to find that sweet spot between these two musical elements is almost unmatched.
As it stands now, Tunstall has scored her sixth sequential effort to be solid from top-to-bottom—an achievement rarely accomplished by an artist regardless of their genre of origin. However, WAX succeeds because Tunstall is aware of what she does best, but she’s willing to constantly push those abilities as far as they can go with each album she does—that is the mark of a true innovator.”
