My opinion: I really like her voice. It reminds me of Betty Boop and her music reminds me of what they would have played in the Roaring 20's and the 30's. I can picture her as a flapper singing on a stage, big band playing on stage with her, cigar- smoke filled air and lots of mobsters sitting around in the audience admiring her beauty. I have always loved the Bootlegger era and wondered how it would be to live during the time of prohibition, the times of the "New Woman" and music that made people dance without a care in the world. I have always loved cars with suicide doors too so that would have been to ride in along with the gangsters of the day. :)
Anyway, back to the music. Listening to her album took me to a place where I can feel like I am living in that time. Needless to say, close your eyes while listening to the songs. It will just make you feel relaxed, happy and make you wanna dance in your seat. Not sure exactly where these cover songs came from...but I think Ms. Rossum did a great job choosing the right songs that depict the months oh the year perfectly (and suits her personality well).
On another note, this style of music is definitely different than what I normally listen to. But her music is playful and very likeable. I want to play this for my kids and see what they think. It's the kind of music they would want to wiggle to. I can totally see them dancing to the following songs: 3, 7, 11 and 13. :)
