There are hints of jazz and hokum lite throughout and, on the whole, a certain timidity—a near reluctance to bow to grit. In short, it’s all a little too perfect. Worse crimes have been committed, of course, but a few flaws, a few false moves, might have actually added to the duo’s appeal. Nice, maybe too nice.
