Music CD - 2012
Average Rating:
Rate this:
Six years after her last album of original material, Chan Marshall, aka Cat Power, has moved on from her collaborative forays into Memphis soul and Delta blues. She wrote, played, recorded and produced the entirety of Sun by herself, a statement of complete control that is echoed in the songs' themes. The narrative arc of the record is deeply American in its spaciousness and optimism, but the music itself is defiantly modern and global.
"Grade of A-...she's never sounded more confident or in control..."--Entertainment Weekly.
"7.9 out of 10...a declaration of independence."--Pitchfork.
"...Her most joyful, sonically adventurous album to date."--NPR Music.

I was smitten, after hearing Cat Power perform Wild is the Wind and wondered why I'd never heard of her. Well, this album SUCKS and confirms that you're only as great as the songs you sing. Unfortunately, I don't like "her" music...yet another example of a good voice wasted on bad songs.
