Cat Power - Jukebox

Chan Marshall's 8th studio album is very, very impressive. And in true cookie-cutter review format, I shall explain why:

First, I have to admit that I have listened to Cat Power only a handful of times in my music-listening career, but as I find my symphonic horizons constantly expanding, I oftentimes look to older, more established artists to guide me in new directions. Cat Power is one of these new slants. Soulful, with a smokers-lounge voice that leaves you floored, Chan Marshall croons through 12 tracks with all the slow, wistfulness a "broken heart" can afford. The only downside to the album is the ability to get lost in the tracks; although they do transition nicely, they also are all similar sounding, which creates more of an ambient quality (with the notable exception of Aretha, Sing One for Me and I Believe in You). I suggest picking it up and having a listen. You never know when you'll be studying or full of loneliness, which this album is perfect for. Standout Tracks: "Metal Heart," "Lost Someone," and "Song to Bobby." Rating: 9/10
