It's not that bad
I'm listening to Scarlett Johansson's Tom Waits covers album, "Anywhere I Lay My Head", and I have to say, it's really not the train wreck we all thought it was going to be. To be honest, it's really a David Sitek (TV on the Radio) solo album with Johansson contributing vocals, much like what Steven Drozd of the Flaming Lips did with Steve Burn's "Songs for Dust Mites" a few years back. David Bowie provides background vocals on a couple of songs, and Sitek's buddies Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and Sean Antanaitis (Celebration) lend their instruments to the music.
It's worth checking out if you even the slightest bit curious.
