  • Scarlett doesn't have the greatest voice ever and it really gets a little lost in Sitek's production but I think she did a pretty good job, or at least Sitek got the album on a good direction
  • It's actually a pretty good album, one of the best of 2008

      It isn’t uncommon for actors to make the jump from screen to a musical career, most of the times with a disastrous ending after a few hits (anyone remember Lindsay Lohan?). Well, on 2007 sexy Scarlett Johansson decided it was her turn to get her very own record but she decided to turn her back

      album. “Anywhere I lay my head” is a bit strange, like I said it’s not an album for the masses but you don’t have to be a Tom Waits fan to enjoy it. It’s actually a pretty good album, one of the best of 2008.

      Although Scarlett’s voice isn’s the best I give this record a 10.
