The third time's definitely a charm for singer/song-writer Vanessa Carlton, who grants three wishes for the listener with her latest album.

1. Intelligent songwriting
2. Well produced songs
3. Non-mainstream fare

The only thing I can find fault with is the length of the album. Like the Cinderella fairytale, Carlton also stops just short of twelve with this eleven song offering, and doesn't even leave a glass slipper to tide us over until the next performance.

Songs with magic in them:

1. Nolita Fairytale - First single, recounting her life and times living in the Nolita district in Manhattan
2. Hands On Me - Second single. Mid-tempo track with catchy melody
3. Spring Street - nice "na-na's"
4. Come Undone - best lyrics
5. The One - just because it features Stevie Nicks
6. Heroes & Thieves - single worthy title track
7. Home - just because it's such a personal and deeply reflective song

Not that the rest are bad, but they're merely as good as we expect a Vanessa Carlton song to be. Rated: 4.5 stars
