Based on the 1908 novel by E.M. Forster, this adaptation combines gorgeous new music with a classic story, and adheres closer to the original novel than the 1985 movie, which starred Helena Bonham Carter as the sheltered English girl Lucy Honeychurch, who's introduced to passion and love while vacationing in Tuscany. While the unforgettable Edwardian characters remain, this enchanting production takes the story to lofty heights through a terrific score and memorable new songs. When Honeychurch meets the free-spirited George Emerson, she must decide whether to remain in the life that has been chosen for her, or break free and give up everything she knows in the name of love.

- "Maybe [<em>Volume One</em>] is just a sweet little folk record—a tiny, flawless diamond. Or maybe it’s a pristine distillation of harmony and craft." --Paste
- "What makes [<em>Volume Two</em>] so distinctive isn't just the sound of her voice, the quality of her songwriting, or even the resourcefulness of his arrangements, but their joint insistence that these old sounds have as much to say nowadays as they ever did." --<a target="_blank" href="http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/14036-volume-two/">pitchfork.com</a>
She & Him make music for an eternal springtime, when the temperature is warm enough to go riding with the top (or at least the windows) rolled down and the radio turned up. They occupy an alternate universe where the saddest of songs feel as warm as sun showers; the rain may be coming down, but somewhere nearby, everything looks bright. What began as a fascinating, no-strings attached collaboration on 2008’s Volume One has evolved into a bona fide, touring band, and She & Him are here to stay.
Zooey Deschanel and Matt Ward are as comfortable and complementary a musical pair as Les Paul and Mary Ford; hearing them again on Volume Two feels like getting together with two old friends. This time, the harmonies have grown more angelically layered, the string arrangements more dramatic, the songwriting even sharper and more confident. But, as with Volume One, the prevailing mood is bittersweet, dreamy, and romantic.
