iTunes Review

While she’s previously recorded with a bevy of ace musicians—including members of Dirty Three and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, as well as her own Dirty Delta Blues Band—Marshall performed all the instrumental parts on Sun. The organic soul grooves of The Greatest, released six years prior, have been switched out for the mechanized beats often found on mainstream pop albums. Yet, it's still a Cat Power album. There's a moody undertow that carries over to the title track, and even the ebullient bounce of "Ruin" isn't all sweetness and light. Drum machines, programmed synths and indelible pop hooks translate to new ground for Marshall, but she still calls upon the original punk, Iggy Pop, to add his mystified voice to the 11-minute opus, "Nothin' But Time," while a track like "Human Being" still reminds one of the dark mysticism of Moon Pix. Recorded at three separate locations, Sun has a sonic variety never before associated with Cat Power. It's about time she's having some fun.

Customer Reviews

Of course it was going to be great but …

I didn't expect such soul and movement that completely blows ones mind away!
This is by far the best album of Cat Power. Its amazing. Just amazing.
Music this eclectic that still bares notes of southern flair will never be mastered quite like Cat Power.
Excellence from start to finish. And on repeat.
Thank you Chan for another great album. THIS is The Greatest.

sooooo good!!

Yayayyaay!! Good job!


I love Cat Power, I love her voice. What I don't like is what they did to her voice. I do not know anything about making music, however, I don't care for how almost all her songs either have her with backup singers or seems to be "touched" It is not her raw voice. Some of the songs sound like they "doubled" her voice. I know I have seen that setting on a fancy piano synthenzier. I am having a hard time getting over the sound so I can listen to her lyrics. Same kind of sound like Shaina Twain has in her music. I try to keep listening.


Born: January 21, 1972 in Atlanta, GA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Penning songs that are offbeat in narrative, but literate and emotionally revealing, and performing them in a soulful, idiosyncratic style that reveals both strength and fragility, Cat Power was one of the most acclaimed singer/songwriters to emerge from the 1990s indie rock scene, a one of a kind artist unafraid to reveal her inner self in her music and follow her muse in a variety of different directions. Cat Power is the stage name of Chan (pronounced "Shawn") Marshall, born Charlyn Marie Marshall...
