Whenever someone asks me who my favourite singer(s) is/are the first one that always comes into my mind is Chan Marshall. Cat Power is Chan and whatever musicians she happens to be working with at the time and a lot of the time its just her on her own. Its hard to describe just how her voice can affect you, how intense and spellbinding it is. The first song I heard of hers was Cross Bones Style and my first impressions were a kind of Sinead O'Connor/Beth Orton vibe but theres more to her than that. Her voice swoops up when you least expect it and at times can be downright eerie (like when she starts hollering "We're already in hell" on the tremendous Moonshiner). It has the power to freeze time and pin you to your seat like no one else I've heard. It's heartbreaking and sexy, sad and joyous all at once. It's like she's stabbing you in the heart and kissing your neck while whispering beautiful sad stories in your ear.

After I heard Cross Bones Style I heard the song Metal Heart on the 'net and that was it. I knew I HAD to buy this album, and I was not disappointed. It takes a while to fully appreciate Moon Pix as it is quite hard going. The songs have no choruses as such, they are very free form and just kind of evolve as they go along. Some stand out more than others and the ones with the Dirty Three playing back up with her are just amazing. It sounds like music made in some kind of trance, hypnotising and gorgeous. She uses a nice technique of double tracking her voice for backing vocals on some songs as well which sounds beautiful.

Although she has since gone on to be more popular and dare I say commercial(?) with albums like You Are Free and The Greatest I find it hard to see her ever topping this.

Moon Pix is a brave CD - in every song Chan Marshall's voice is accompanied by extremely sparse arrangements. It's less commercial than albums that she has released since, and so would appeal to a narrower audience; however personally I think it's the greatest work of hers that I've so far heard. I found it difficult to appreciate at the first listen or two, but I persevered and soon found that I had fallen in love with Chan Marshall's spellbinding voice. I'm not going to single out any particular songs, because I feel that this album in its entirity is a masterpiece. If you're after haunting, emotional music, you can't go far wrong buying Moon Pix. It deserves a place in every CD collection.

Chan Marshall's fourth (or third) album finds her making her first bold step into new sounds and songs with polished production, a Beastie Boys sample, flutes, two members of the dirty three and eleven tracks filled with her signature, yet evolving styles. 'Cross Bones Style' is a particular highlight, 'Metal Heart' still holds up today as a regular in her recent sets, 'American Flag' never gets any less sexier and every other track here has something special to offer. This is a wonderful album, and while your here please pick up the three albums she recorded before this one, if your are a real music nut you will have so much to explore. Good luck.

I love this album. I got my cd copy for free via Matador Records many years ago when I was lucky enough to be a music buyer for an export company. It stayed on the 'to be listened to' pile for over 2 or 3 years, and then finally I played it.
I wasn't blown away immediately, but it had something, so over the next weeks and months I played it some more, and each time, it worked it's way in a little further.
I've now spent my own money on the vinyl re-issue, it's that good.
I listen to 6 music quite often, and hear some of the similar artist that they rate so highly, but none of them come close to this.
This is an amazing, simple, raw, laid back, and very beautiful album, and I can't recommend it highly enough.

It's late in the day when i hear a record of such a high quality. Chen marshall's delicate voice is juxtaposed perfectly with laid back guitar strummings. One of the best albums i have ever had the pleasure of hearing. The best kept secret in the current music scene.
