iTunes Editors’ Notes

Actress Scarlett Johansson’s solo musical debut is a lovely collection of hazy, ephemeral, narco-pop, a distant cousin to early 4AD artists (Lush, Pale Saints, Lisa Germano) and early-‘70s folk rock (Tim Buckley, Big Star). Produced by TV On the Radio’s Dave Sitek, Johansson pours her longtime affection for Tom Waits into covering a slew of his songs, which is gutsy in itself; not that she’s playing the breathy sex kitten taking on the wizened and whiskered troubadour — she’s got a fairly gutsy, bluesy, crooner style, in fact — but any newcomer taking on such a revered figure has got to have some trepidation. With the songs thoroughly filtered into new creations, the only misstep here is that producer Sitek laid on the atmospherics a bit too thick; when Johansson’s not lost in the fog, her voice is inarguably seductive and powerful. Strip away a layer of keyboard haze on the title track, on “Falling Down” or “I Don’t Wanna Grow Up,” and you’ll find a vocal as strong as any indie chanteuse. Her sharp edges on tracks like “Town With No Cheer” and “Green Grass” pay tribute to her muse — with a little sugar added.

Customer Reviews

What? I can't hear what you're saying...

I wanted to like this album because Scarlett Johannson is pretty hot but, after listening to some tracks in preview, I just have no idea what is happening. It sounds like she's singing under the water in a pool ... or, like it's a cassette and the tape has gotten all fed up in the gears. Maybe having her voice drowned out by the music is part of the artistic appeal ... but I don't get it.

Scarlet, the final frontier.

Move over William Shatner, there's a new actor/ awful singer sherriff in town! I for one couldn't be more delighted. Capt. Kirk set the bar very high indeed for thespians who thought they could sing (i'm looking at you hasselhoff) but Scarlett is my new muse. I would give this a hundred stars if I was able, it's that wonderfully bad! Thank you Scarlett, the gauntlet is passed to a younger generation. Never stop singing...never.

Pretty awful...

From interviews, it seems Scarlett really took the project seriously, and good for her for doing her thing and putting it out there, but it's terrible. I love Tom Waits, and I came to this album with an open mind, but man oh man, Scarlett better not quit her day job.
