...welcome miss vanessa carlton, 12 July 2002
...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.
