...You know, everytime I buy a cd online I always check what people have bought as well as the album i am interested in. Like always i've found the artist links spot on owning all recordings from the list other than Jewel! The first time I heard a thousand miles i was busying myself with MTV providing background music-as soon as i heard that haunting piano intro i felt a shiver go down my spine, all of a sudden this song (only 20 seconds in!) was already having this effect which made me feel really emotional-and when i heard her voice i was so relieved that this was talent and wasn't about to be ruined by some vile tacky dance beat! Well as a proud owner of be not nobody i can recommend it to anyone who appreciates a beautiful talent. This young lady is not afraid of variance and her classical training only adds to her accomplishment on this debut. It is so hard sometimes to find somebody that sings her own words and isn't scared to release something different to the rest of the painfully similar mainstream trash that is constantly kicking about. A must for anyone who loves thoughtful lyrics, intense, charged music all sung to you by a beautiful young woman with a gorgeous, stunning voice.

Vanessa Carlton is only 21 years old but have already tried her talents as a ballarina and worked as a waitress on the lower part of Manhatten, N.Y., far from her childhood home in Pennsylvania. Thank God she, with the help of her father, realised that she could sing. After a year of working on material to this debut album she meet Ron Fair of A&M records and Jimmy Lovine of Geffen Records and this album could be completed. Be Not Nobody is a brilliant, personal and strong debut, with a handful of good, pop/rock songs carried by Vanessa's gifted and crystal clear voice and talent as a classical trained pianist. I was amazed and surprised by every single track from first song Ordinary Day to the Suzanne Vega inspired song Twillight. You can hear inspiration from Susanna Hoffs (voc.The Bangles) in her voice and a couple of hundres other female artist. Pretty Baby, probably the second single from the album, is a wonderful popballad, but performed with a strenght I haven't heard in a long, long time by any female singer. The debut album is an incredible, overwhelming first from this new artist.
The single from this album A Thousand Miles, flowing with lyrics, passion and ever changing rhythm could be this year's Grammy Award winning song in The USA. Buy this CD before your neighbours do, they want it too, believe me.

I am pretty impressed with this album. Vanessa Carlton is certainly a very talented pianist and has one of those interesting voices - wouldn't win pop-idol and all the better for it.
The best things about this album for me are the playing (brilliant drums from Abe Laboriel Jnr and bass from Leyland Sklar) and the song '1000 miles' which is soooo catchy and has an excellent riff.
All in all I like this album and would give it an unqualified recommendation

Good songs, great voice, very nice piano playing, so what lets this album down? The relentless over production from the clearly egotistical bigshot producer, who has taken at least 1 star from my score. They say the job of a good producer is when you can' t tell that there' s been a producer at all. not with this ablum. The big budget production simply detracks from what Carlton is trying to express and leaves no space for the imagination, as well as making the album a little samey. Every space is filled. The 120 peice (or whatever)orchestra is present on practicly every track. But if you like that kind of thing, you' ll love it.
She does have a good backing band besides that, though.
I look forward to her future albums as she is clearly an artist with a lot of talent and potential.
And for those of you wandering, I would say "A thousand Miles" is the best track on the album.

To be honest, popular music has needed a kick up the proverbial backside for sometime. Especially when you look at the amount of boy bands emerging (and how much younger they seem to be getting...), and more disturbingly, the amount that dance music appears to be rearing its ugly head once more. Although I'm not a fan of her, since Alicia Keys came along and had that huge hit with 'Fallin' ', I was pretty glad that maybe some artists who actually have talent (shock, horror) might just be breaking into the mainstream. And of course, when there's one, there's going to be others...and although you can't really compare Vanessa Carlton to Alicia Keys, you can't help but wonder if she'd done quite so well and achieved quite so much if it wasn't for the appearance of Miss Keys and her tinkling fingers...
Other than the sheer fact that they both play and write songs acoustically, there are little other similarities to the two. And I'm not going to start comparing. Vanessa Carlton possesses a fine high-pitched voice that although is not unique, makes the music she personally wrote sound more personal and at the same time more relatable and vulnerable. She also possesses a lot more talent than I actually expected to hear upon purchasing 'Be Not Nobody' (the sort of title that teenagers will flock to buy unfortunately). It's worth noting and remembering that as you move your way through fine upbeat piano, dark sombre atmospherics, string-laden beauties and highly professionally put together layered songs, that she was only around 18 years old when she made this album. She may even have written these songs a longer time ago.
