Actress-turned-singer Scarlett Johansson's debut album has received a series of scathing reviews from music critics, who have branded the star's recordings "fussy and forgettable." The star released her CD "Anywhere I Lay My Head," a collection of Tom Waits covers, this week. But several reviews of the 40-minute-long disc have been lukewarm, with ators reserving their harshest criticism for Johansson's vocal abilities. Rolling Stone, which gave Johansson a mediocre 2.5 stars out of 5, complains, "Johansson's voice is unremarkable and her pitch sometimes unsteady; she's a faintly goth Marilyn Manson lost in a sonic fog." Entertainment Weekly was also less than complimentary, giving the project an average "C" grade and remarking that her "expressionless voice" was concealed "deeply in the druggy ambiance." The album, released on Rhino Records, contains 10 Waits covers with the exception of one original composition co-written by 23-year-old Johansson and TV on the Radio guitarist/keyboardist David Andrew Sitek. Rocker David Bowie contributes backing vocals on two of the tracks.
