Adams has stated the following regarding her vocal quality: “It’s not a normal voice. People’s ideas of what a woman’s voice ought to sound like are off-base when compared to what they really hear. However, my mother does not think that I have a very unique voice. I have no doubt that it was crucial in securing several opportunities for me. However, I came very close to missing Chasing Amy. It was anticipated that the voice would be irritating to some listeners, and several reviewers confirmed that this was the case. Her voice has been described as “sex-kitten-on-helium” by one film critic. Another person commented that regardless of how the audience felt about it, her voice had “the potential to hypnotize.”
