How you feel about She & Him almost certainly hinges, at least in part, on how you feel about Zooey Deschanel. After all, Volume 3 , Deschanel’s third album working with folk-pop’s M. Ward is, for all intents and purposes, both stylistically and thematically a mirror image of the persona she presents to the public. In other words, it’s sunny; it’s quirky; it’s clever; and it’s cute. Thus, if you can’t stand Deschanel’s character in the TV show New Girl , then the music she records with M. Ward for She & Him is almost certainly not for you. For everyone else, there’s plenty here to enjoy.
