It seems that Scarlett’s album and the music video have stirred up some controversy online and in the media: people seem to either love or hate it! NME gave the album 8 out of 10 – pretty good! You can read the full review here and check out an excerpt below. Remember that you can always come and voice your opinion on Scarlett’s work on the forum – as long as it is voiced in a respectful manner. We’d love to hear from you!

This is a brilliant album that will no doubt top some ‘best of 2008’ lists, but it’s hard to work out if it’s a one-off or not. Perhaps the answer lies in the one original track, ‘Song For Jo’, which stands out as a result of its sparseness. A lone acoustic guitar strums, as an ambient orchestra plays in the background. It recalls Karen O’s Squeak E Clean collaboration ‘Hello Tomorrow’ and suggests that if Johansson and Sitek collaborated on a second album, similar ghostly magic could happen again. Let’s hope they do.

Caroline.

I have heard part of each song from the album on the web and the full length of the song, Falling Down, and I think the album sounds like a very good album, I think the songs really have their own sound, and that the songs are really intelligently put together, and are good songs and uplifting songs to listen to, and that it sounds like an inspiring album for any one interested in music to listen to.
