Previously showcasing her pipes on albums Our Day and In the Sun, classically-trained Colette gives her vocals center stage on her artist debut, Hypnotized. Doused at times in classic, funky house and electro rhythms, her lovely soprano unfortunately can‘t elevate the album above pop lite. From the rainy-day groove of "A Little More," where she sings "You think it‘s easy/To sit and wait for you/You think I deserve/All the things you do," to the ballad-ish "The One," where she pines for love, Colette‘s lyrical and musical combinations are a bit too diary-literal. Ultimately, Hypnotized is the auditory equivalent of reading chick lit.
