Tangles is an album by American singer-songwriter S. J. Tucker, released in 2005 (See 2005 in music).

Background[edit]

This album is considered a highly refined representation of S.J. Tucker's musical talent in 2005. The tracks on this disc consist of some of her most popular and most-requested songs of that period. Her official website states: "If you like rich vocal harmonies and rich, masterful musical accompaniment, then you want to own Tangles!" Also saying that "every song on this album is somebody's favorite." It is thought to be Tucker's establishing album with both Pagan and everyday audiences.

This is thought to be as the album echoes many of the few yet past themes of Tucker's previous albums and EPs, in which she much utilizes the themes of fantasy and fairytales. Tangles sees this still being used, yet songs on the album such as Baba Yaga and Drum start a Pagan or alternative theme that would carry on through the rest of Tucker's albums.
