5.0 out of 5 stars Love is not loneliness March 27 2003
Format:Audio CD
Of course all albums worth reviewing are five stars, and every "best of" is so personal as to be meaningless. Cat Power is so insular as to be beyond review. You either feel her pain, or you don't. If you have ever seen Cat Power live, you have been treated to either the most moving or most embarrasing performance of your life-- sometimes both in the same night. Much the same with this album. This is Chan at her most raw, most intimate, most compelling and most distancing. It is almost funny to watch the progression of her career, to see her perform with "famous musicians" and to see her on Letterman. She is ultimately an outsider artist, creating something not quite "art" but rather a daguerrotype of her soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! July 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
IF YOU LIKE CAT POWER, YOU NEED THIS CD. THIS ALBUM REALLY DESCRIBES CHAN AND SOUNDS VERY NATURAL FOR HER. IT HAS EVERY ONE OF HER DIFFERENT STYLES TO OFFER, FROM SUPER SLOW TO ANGRY SAD-CORE, TO WHIMSY COUNTRY. A MUST HAVE FOR ANY FAN!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars nothing but power March 25 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album is Chan Marshall at her most punk-inspired, at it also happens to be my fave out of what she's done--Why?--in her later albums, the focus has been her voice, which means that the accompaniment is her piano playing/guitar work with no other frills--while this is by no means bad, she has a limited repertoire of solo guitar work and piano work, which can create a monotony in her music--in What Would The Community Think, she has a great back up band (including steve shelley of sonic youth) which emphasizes the jewel of her voice, but also adds a variety that I find lacking in her later releases--highlights? In This Hole (a tragic beauty), What Would the Community Think (A hypnotic meditation of feedback), and Nude as The News (as lively as Chan gets)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent but not her best April 12 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is great, but not as good as Moon Pix. I first heard Chan Marshall on some Matador video, which has "Cross Bones Style" and "Nude as the News". The former is on Moon Pix, the latter is on this album. .... Chan has a great voice and her songwriting style is dark without being melodramatic. Musically it's pretty sparse without being too minimalist. The songs really come through, so you should get this album. It's funny how she goes "The Lord don't give a ... about me..."

4.0 out of 5 stars lost my CD Dec 15 2001
By Cole
Format:Audio CD
Like others, heard Nude as the News on the Matador compilation (there is a website named after the song, b.t.w). Asked at a good record store-- the two people behind the counter got into a fight over "What would.." vs. The Covers Album. I bought #1.. got used to it.. then couldn't stop playing it (esp Good Clean Fun, Bathysdphere).. then lost it. Months later, I'm still singing those first few bars of Good Clean Fun; you know how she throws in that minor chord?

5.0 out of 5 stars atmosphere beyond paranoia for once Dec 6 2001
By Matthew
Format:Audio CD
there was a time once a few summers ago when i found myself in a room in Tennessee and was more or less reduced to staying there - no reason for it, other than that it wasn't home - listening to this album after having spent the season washing dishes and hearing "Moon Pix" and "The Covers Record," i had a few moments, or one continuous moment i guess, in which it became clear that Chan Marshall's songs were the soundtrack to every empty room i'd ever been in - tension and veiled purity on this album last beyond what's worth talking about - imagine the sound of someone wanting to stay inside, married to the experience of another's equilibrium - and music for the frequencies in-between - the only songwriter next to Will Oldham, Robert Pollard, and whoever else you might listen to - like a fusion of Son House, Roy Orbison, and Sonic Youth - and none of the above.

Somehow deep within the unheard music I was shooting at least two 50's a day and Joseph God bless his musically inclined wizened self brought this intriguing album over (with the cover that reeks of the Symbolists painter's Fernand Khnoppf's 'The Caress or the SphinXess' Belgium circa 1890) and we visited the Hero-In-side-of-us-all and purchased an 1/8 of C(reepy) and spent the evening inclined of a freakish fate drugged by the beauty of the music all night long until the sun broke bloody-headed over the Sandias and truly 'WHAT WOULD THE COMMUNITY THINK" if they could have seen the look in our eyes during that night they would've screamed and run for their life, such a divine metamorphosis and bonding was undertaken funereally behind the scenes of such music which since then I've come to champion Chan Marshall as one of the greatest of songwriters of her generation of the Xcommunicated she brings together by her riffs so dreamlike to rock upon as on a drug swayed this way and that and back to her voice coming through along with the cocaine ring in the ear, worn like a mysterious whisper divining the future and the MERCY of the Moment I'm so glad to have been a part of...I listened to this album more than all the others and it has taken on the contents more of a book or a soundtrack to a particular part of my life that was lived as dangerously as the rest but was somehow more beautiful if only for the company I kept and the conversations that seemed so essential and important at the time that we didn't change the world but certainly did ourselves...Chan Marshall was a part of all of our lives...and if you're searching for comparisons or ratings or contents know that it is beautiful and as all music must be had at a specific moment or it might be missed..
