Scarlett Johansson - Anywhere I Lay My Head

What a bloody awesome album.....okay , to put it bluntly scarlett is not a great singer but over one album she has created a magical tribute to the songwriting of Tom Waits (except for one track written by herself).
Uncle David Bowie does a bit of backing on a couple of tracks and Tom appears on just one as far as I can hear after a couple of listens.
If you visualise a sort of mellow Nick Caves feel, then that is what the album is like...some great tunes and I don't know why but it just works really well.
I really hope people will give this a chance because for me it has turned out to be one of those exciting little gems that turns up occasionally.
Go Scarlett!
