CD Review: Vanessa Carlton - 'Rabbits on the Run'

This new batch of songs finds Carlton sticking to her guns and doing what she does best – lay delicate, melancholy vocals atop a bed of lush piano.

Carlton is mostly an island throughout Rabbits on the Run, though this release could be looked at as her most adventurous to date in some aspects. The quirky...
