Description
Scottish singer/songwriter KT Tunstall has outdone herself in this fourth release. Recorded in Arizona in two separate sessions, it limns her emotional journey after the death of her father and the breakup of her marriage.

"The sparse, countrified tone is new for her … but fits the reflective mood of the songs…. The hallmark is delicacy: every song feels fragile. The track 'Made of Glass' even has fragility as its subject—a friend who died of cancer left her a vase, which inspired this gently strummed meditation about breakable gifts. 'How You Kill Me' is also full of pathos; 'Just as I sing like a bird, you shoot me down for your fun,' she accuses, over brushed cymbals and hypnotic bass. 'Waiting on the Heart' is the most alt-country moment—[producer Howe] Gelb has made free with the pedal steel and reverb, and it's a stunner. In fact, there's little here that doesn't make you wonder where Tunstall has been hiding all this beauty until now. Four Stars."—The Guardian

"By some distance her best, offering a series of deeply-felt musings on mortality, mercy and memory…. Gelb's production is supremely simpatico, adding shadings of mellotron, piano, clarinet and strings as she progresses from the emotional transparency of 'Made of Glass' through to her own recovery. A touching, intelligent work."—The Independent
