Scarlett Johansson, 'Anywhere I Lay My Head' (ATCO)

5
Anywhere I Lay My Head
Critical Mass
Label: ATCO

by Mikael Wood

Beyond the fact that her voice is deep enough for her to front Crash Test Dummies, there's nothing particularly compelling about Scarlett Johansson's singing: As one scene in Lost in Translation confirmed, she's about as capable as a karaoke enthusiast needs to be. Fortunately, on this collection of Tom Waits covers (plus one original), her vocals are buried deep beneath TV on the Radio guitarist/producer Dave Sitek's mountain of reverbed space-gospel noise. Opener "Fawn" is, in fact, an instrumental. Not your typical Hollywood vanity project.
