Yeah, I thought it was pretty bad too, but I listened to it again while looking at a photo of her and it somehow sounded better!

Critic’s takes (from Reuters):

“Johansson’s voice is unremarkable and her pitch sometimes unsteady; she’s a faintly goth Marilyn Manson lost in a sonic fog,” wrote Rolling Stone magazine, which gave her a lukewarm 2.5 stars out of five.

Britain’s Mojo magazine called the recordings “fussy and forgettable,” adding that the decision to begin the album with an instrumental was hardly a vote of confidence in Johansson’s vocal abilities.

The disc received a middling “C” grade from Entertainment Weekly magazine, which wrote that her “expressionless voice” was buried “deeply in the druggy ambiance.”

And the Washington Post said it was possible to listen to all 40-plus minutes of Johansson’s album and “still have no earthly idea what she sounds like.”

“The album is ultimately too ethereal for its own good,” the Post said. “Every song is like every other song, even the ones that sound different.”

if it wasn’t intended as a joke it sure turned out as one.

i couldnt believe how horrible it was. why didnt anyone stop her???

nayeight's avatar

it makes me wonder, between her & those damn moldy peaches people, does vocal talent really matter anymore? Just because ur a talented songwriter doesn’t mean u can sing it….

NoahD's avatar

atleast the moldy peaches are somewhat funny & interesting. thy fit the movie Juno well. if it weren’t for Juno, they probably would’ve remained unheard of, by the general public anyways.
