3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 29 July 2003
This review is from: Be Not Nobody (Audio CD)
I was really looking forward to listening to Be Not Nobody when I first got it. I was a huge fan of both singles from the album (A Thousand Miles and Ordinary Day) and Vanessa clearly has a talent that is rare in the today's charts. But after revelling in albums from similar artists like Michelle Branch and Avril Lavigne, Be Not Nobody was a bit of a let-down.
There are a few god tracks other than the singles on here, most notably Unsung which is a great, upbeat swirl of piano and her storming cover of Paint It Black is another highlight. But many of the tracks just all blend into one another, the distinguishing piano riffs are few and far between I felt and Vanessa's voice can become quite irritatingly nasal at certain points.
I think huge fans of the artist will love it and it's definitely not a bad piece of work, her clear talent and enthusiasm shines. But I was expecting a lot more from it and was disappointed to find an album with little depth and full of sub-par, half-copies of the lead single. To be honest, you should save money and just buy a copy of the single A Thousand Miles, as I think it may be the only song on the album many people will end up listening to.
