AdvertIf your only exposure to this ivory pounding gal has been through her song, �A Thousand Miles� in the film, �White Chicks� � you�re in for a pleasant surprise with her 2004 album, "Harmonium." Despite efforts to belittle certain songs she has written herself, it�s hard for anyone to argue with her musical flair.

Her second album, "Harmonium" establishes Vanessa Carlton as a true vocal talent and skilled pianist.

Considering that Vanessa writes her own music, she deserves an ample amount of recognition - not only for her excellent writing ability, but also for the gift of having these kinds of words and thoughts floating around in her head.

Her lyrics are filled with � shall we say � rather large vocabulary words, which indicate intelligence as opposed to using foul and meaningless filler, which practically makes a public spectacle of a �musical artists� stupidity.

Obviously this is not the case with Carlton.

The words she uses to express her thoughts are deep, meaningful and have a certain stick-to-itiveness.

�White Houses� and �Who�s to Say� are the best songs on the entire album.

They are both well-written and matched with relatively catchy background music.

�Afterglow� has a strange sort of "pondering your life� style to it.

It�s a very strong piano-focused melody, complemented by a sort of sad, yet content mood.

�San Francisco�, �Private Radio� and �Papa� aren�t bad, but they certainly do not live up to the better songs on the album.

�Half A Week Before The Winter� strikes one as a rather strange and experimental song, while �Annie� and �She Floats� completely lacked � just about everything it needed.

"Harmonium" as a whole is a fine album, maybe even worthy of your buck � if you enjoy her style of music.

Even if you are not personally into her mellow-jazz music, if you enjoy easy listening and interesting writing, this wouldn�t be bad bet.
