What is up with Axel's voice?

Hasn't anyone else noticed that Axel's voice sounds different? I know it's still the same guy. But Axel sounds almost retarded in here. I loved Axel in the 2nd KH mainly because of his voice. I know he's just an anime character. But he's so freakin' hot too.

As we've seen with some Organization members (Lexaeus, Xaldin, Saix, Xemnas, etc.), not all of them have much of a personality.

Apparently Axel "was" one of them, although his experience with Sora in Castle Oblivion, and later Roxas for that entire year between KH1 and KH2 changed him into the character we came to know in Kingdom Hearts II.

Or...you could chalk up that since Axel was a double agent, sent by Xemnas to spy on Marluxia, that Axel pulled that "no emotion" in order to not draw attention from Marluxia and Larxene that he may be up to something.
