Love songs blush with excitement over special guys and the anticipation of living happily ever after ("Ordinary Day," "Pretty Baby," "Twilight," "Sway," "A Thousand Miles"). On "Paradise," a woman battling inner turmoil is urged to "let it out" so that others might lend a hand ("All she wants and all she needs are reasons to survive"). Guarding her heart, Carlton wants to make sure the object of her affection returns her feelings ("Wanted," "Prince," "Unsung"). "Twilight" finds the singer taking control of her future and refusing to be victimized by circumstances.
This gifted teen’s haunting, occasionally tormented vocals aren’t indicative of her lyrical content. A few songs deal with loneliness or waves of melancholy, but even those don’t turn bitter or despairing. Rolling Stone counted Carlton among 10 new artists to watch. Pray that she continues on the positive course established here.
