iTunes Review

Cat Power’s second collection of covers is a notably more confident affair. Recording The Greatest in Memphis with veteran soul music session musicians apparently taught Cat Power (aka Chan Marshall) a thing or two about rhythm, as she imbues her own “Metal Heart” with a previously unforeseen funk, skates over Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” with a big city attitude that was nowhere to be found on her previous solo work, where the emphasis was on the quiet spaces and dark corners and even deliberate musical ineptness, with amateurism favored over seasoned professionalism. There are still plenty of private, brooding moments here. The Highwaymen’s “Silver Stallion” is kept an acoustic blues. James Brown’s “Lost Someone” drifts over with a sweet reverb that recalls an empty nightclub in the wee hours of morning. Joni Mitchell’s “Blue” unfurls with its romantic tinge intact. But elsewhere Marshall’s a swinger, throwing real authority behind George Jackson’s ‘Aretha, Sing One For Me,” her backing musicians providing the perfect organ-horn support. Marshall’s growing up. The wallflower takes centerstage.

She's Gained Some, And Lost Some.

Cat Power is extraordinary, and truly does not sound like any other. This record shows that she's grown as a vocalist, but it also marks the decline of her fresh approach to interpretation. Where as the Covers Record was minimal, naked, and melancholy, this record is funky, soulful, and slick. The cover bears it all. Who would've thought five years ago that Cat Power would've been a model for Chanel? The girl who used to garment her album sleeves with snapshots taken from crappy cameras and paintings of vases with flowers. Those albums had a certain feeling of intamacy and privateness that few artists could barely comprehend. She sounded like one of your good best friends that revealed every hidden thought to you, with almost freightening relentlessness. As sad and as pained as she may have been, there was a certain light to her songs that gave insight and power to the listener. It seems lately those qualities of intamacy have been replaced with the slick, soulful voice that she's retained over her recent years. It's only on songs like "Silver Stallion" that she even hints back to her minimal roots. However, she does execute some songs well. "New York" has a great beat, however I was disappointed at the curtail. At times I thought this record was top heavy. Some songs seem to be strained too much, such as "Naked, If I Want To". Not to say that people won't like this, some people may prefer who newer sound as compared to her older one. It's definitely more mainstream and glossy. However, being the oldtime Cat Power fan myself, I have to say that she could've evolved in a way that would've complimented her old style with the newer.

Its alright for now

I will have to say that Cat Power is one of my favorites, I think "You are free" is one of the best albums ever made by any musician. Last year I heard she was going to follow up "The Greatest" with an album called "Sun" and I was very excited, but then all of a sudden they said that she was releasing another album of covers first. Now after waiting and buying this album I just have to ask What is the point?....it seems to be kinda a waste of time. These songs are good but nothing out of this world. They are lacking vitality and creativity....a large part of what I like about her music. The music sounds much too dated for me....kinda like if a wedding band were performing in a bluesy, smokey honkeytonk. I would enjoy it if I was there...but it wouldnt blow me away. I think she is one of the great talents....but I really hope Chan has gotten this sound out of her system and comes out with something sonically beyond what anyone else is doing. This is just a tease and I will wait for her next original masterpiece!!!!!

A Solid, Cohesive Work from a Master.

One of the many joys of listening to a Cat Power album is borne out of her developed sound. This album, I feel, will not dissapoint those fans who appreciate Chan Marshall's generally sparse arrangements, but it also pays tribute to the roots of her musical taste, so anyone enamored of Nina Simone, etc. will also be pleased. This album just fits together wonderfully. I was glad to find a perfected version of "Metal Heart" on thsi album, that truly gives the song a strong personality. This is for fans of her Memphis Rythm Band work and her first solo albums, alike.
