This review is from: You Are Free (Audio CD)
This is without a doubt my favourite Cat Power album. Some claim Moon Pix is best, The Greatest has got her most recent acclaim, but to listen to, this is surely the most enjoyable. I was recommended Cat Power and bought this album first, and was completely blown away. It's beautiful, and Chan Marshall has such a beautiful, individual voice that blends perfectly with her lovely piano and acoustic guitar melodies. So many songs on here are amazing, particular the opener, "I Don't Blame You", with a gorgeous piano intro, the guitar-driven "Free" and "He War", and my particular favourite, the poignant and sad but stunningly beautiful "Good Woman". If you've heard of Cat Power and want to get into her, but are not sure which album to start with, I would say this is the ideal opener.
