LISTEN: “Falling Down” on

Let’s just hope the other tracks on the album are better than this sludge. Sounds like the engineer went overboard with sonic layers in order to mask the fact that Johansson is not really an excellent troubadour. Also it kinda reminds me of Sinead O’Connor.

Me no likey.

  1. I kind of like it. It reminds me of Jesus & Mary Chain, with all the noisy layers, and Mazzy Star, with that thick, dreamy sound and sort of atonal female vocals.
