Cat Power – Sun (UK 2LP import)

Categories: , , ,


Sun received  positive reviews from music critics.  AllMusic editor Heather Phares, in a very positive review, commented that the album’s “remarkably spare production aesthetic sounds all the more striking coming after The Greatest’s lushness” and said that Marshall’s “willingness and ability to mix, bend, and blend old and new sounds isn’t such a far cry from the more sonically adventurous moments on Moon Pix and especially You Are Free; she’s just expanding on that instinct and adding a more hopeful songwriting bent.”  Magnet commented that “this is easily her fullest-sounding, most animated record to date”. Similarly, Drowned in Sound reviewer Hayley Avron referred to Sun as “the most rounded and accomplished [album] of Cat Power’s career”, elaborating that “it seemed that she may have reached a creative peak with The Greatest, which signified a definitive leap in her musical evolution. That wheel kept on turning though, and Sun marks an even bolder step forward; the songs sound light and layered with space and sound and is rich with an air of experimentation, with none of the pitfalls of amateurism that often accompany such forays into musical exploration.”. Rolling StoneRob Sheffield said that “Marshall has always been one of the most emotionally intense songwriters around, but with Sun she has made her riskiest, most vital album, not to mention one of her greatest.”.  Melissa Maerz of Entertainment Weekly stated that Marshall has “never sounded more confident or in control than she does on Sun.
