Can one lens do it all?

Has any one any experience of, or can offer any advice about, the Tamron 18-270mm lens?
I have a Canon 500D and am very happy with everything so far but feel that maybe the kit lens (18-55mm) has some limitations so I am looking to purchase another lens. The Tamron I have mentioned above seems to be a good all round option but I am worried that a lens to cover all purposes might have a new set of problems, i.e. Jack of all trades but master of none.
Also I have been given contradictory information by 2 different shops, one says the Tamron lens is better in all aspects than the Canon while the other shop has told me the colour definition will not be so good on the Tamron?
Any and all advice on the subject will be greatfully reeived as I don't have an endless budget so don't want to make an expensive mistake.
