Cat Power
The Greatest

"The Greatest finds indie rock's Joni Mitchell unexpectedly confident while taking a welcome step sideways. Twangy soul is weird territory for the notoriously withdrawn folkie, but Chan Marshall makes it fit." (www.stereogum.com)

"Gone is the singer who made Will Oldham look like a keg-partying, shorts-wearing frat boy, and in her place comes a songwriter who has found a new expansiveness without losing any of her distinctively eccentric character." (Mojo)

"The ethereal title track is the missing link between Big Star's third and the 21st century; if Alex Chilton were today a beautiful young woman, he'd sound like this." (Filter)

"The Greatest captures Cat Power's characteristic fallen woman angst, but swaps the eerie starkness of earlier discs for quietly lush backdrops with a funky edge-kinda like a pared down indie tribute to Dusty in Memphis." (Now)
