"There was another reviewer who nailed it, she sounds like she's singing to a metronome. You can almost keep time with the seconds ticking by as she sings...tick tock tick tock...
I thought her singing in Elf was excellent but this is just not the same Zooey Dechanel. She's hesitant, distant and afraid to dive in. She's really holding back. It's a shame because she can do much better. Her voice just doesn't fit with these songs. Her best efforts will be in a Norah Jones vein singing sultry torch songs. ZD's rendition of "Baby It's Cold Outside" shows what she can do when she's motivated. She just doesn't sound motivated here. She sounds scared.
Too bad. But I'm sure time and experience will overcome a lot of that. Others loved Volume One. For me it was a swing-and-a-miss. I'm also not a big fan of her song writing and that doesn't help either."
