Drastic Fantastic is the second studio album by Scottish Singer KT Tunstall. It was released by Virgin Records on 10 September 2007 in the United Kingdom and 18 September 2007 in the United States and Canada. The album was leaked on P2P networks on 3 September 2007. "Hold On", the lead single was released on 16 July 2007 in the United States.
In Scotland, KT beat both Kanye West and 50 Cent to make it to number 1 in the Scottish Album Charts.
Drastic Fantastic charted at #72 in the UK end of year chart selling around 225,000 copies in 2007.
As of August 2008, Drastic Fantastic has sold 215,000 copies in the United States. 
The album received warm, though conservative, praise by most critics. Music critics from The Observer gave Drastic Fantastic five stars, stating the album was "bursting with so many hits that Tunstall's comic-book life is about to go stratospheric". Rob Sheffield of Rolling Stone gave the album three-and-a-half stars out of five, and said that the album's sound was a "flashback" to 1997 by noting similarities between the songs on Drastic Fantastic and songs written 10 years earlier. Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic gave the album four out of five, calling Drastic Fantastic "a rare beast: a pop album with a songwriter's heart". 
However, some critics were less impressed, stating that the album was overproduced and lacked the "folky" touch of her previous album Eye to the Telescope. The Guardian gave it three stars, stating "Tunstall could do better".
These bonus tracks appear on the iTunes pre-order edition of Drastic Fantastic.
In the iTunes Deluxe Edition, the following music videos are included.
In addition, it comes with fifteen minute long documentary by film director Chris Bran as well as two digital booklets.
Most songs on Drastic Fantastic are not new songs. An acoustic version of "Little Favours" and "Paper Aeroplane" appeared on the 2000 demo album 'Tracks In July'. "Little Favours" also appeared as the B-side to "Under the Weather". "If Only", "Funnyman", and "Saving My Face" appeared on the demo album 'Toons March '03'. Finally, Tunstall mentioned writing two new songs, "Hopeless" and "White Bird", in a blog entry from 2003.
