I would expect not for a few weeks until after the buzz around the album release dies down, and they need to generate more press and interest in the album/tour. Not that I'm cynical or anything.

More Sun Pictures

Post  Cokelike on Sun 2 Sep - 6:15

Went to my local vinyl shop and picked up all kinds of good stuff. 5 Joni Mitchell albums (I was appearently only a few hours from getting Blue, someone else got to it), Dusty Springfield, Janis Ian, The Ventures, "The Aristocats" soundtrack. And also the regular vinyl of Sun:



They also had small 2 inch X 2 inch "Sun" cards.

Oh frustration!
Amazon informed me that they were not able to send the record and that i won't receive it until tuesday. I don't like the sound of it. I won't trust them anymore for such an important task and i'll stick with brick & mortar shops next time. No

On the other hand, i received my Sun poster but it is not as i expected: it is a teaser poster without the face of Chan on it, nor the name Cat Power. Bad karma this week-end... Evil or Very Mad

What's on the right with the sphinx picture? The inner sleeve?

Yes, one of the inner sleeves which are also nice thin but sturdy cardboard like the main album sleeve. The Deluxe has the album titles in "Heiroglyphics" form on this sleeve, while the regular shows the Sphinx. Otherwise the 2 main record sleeves are the same and both include the lyrics on the back of the other sleeve.

Non mais là c'est pas possible! La version deluxe est annoncée disponible sous "1 à 3 semaines" et la simple "temporairement en rupture de stock", donc le 6 septembre c'est à l'instant t, ça peut encore reculer... Hors de question que j'attende aussi longtemps: ce sera cette semaine, quitte à l'écouter en cd... Evil or Very Mad

En allant au bureau ce matin, je suis passée devant un magasin de musique et le vinyl + le cd me narguaient en vitrine! Rhaaaa!

Cela dit, ta frustration doit être infiniment plus grande que la mienne vu que je l'ai déjà écouté... (soupirs)

Mauvaise nouvelle pour les commandes amazon: ils ne l'ont pas en stock et n'ont aucune visibilité quant à la disponibilité. Si vous êtes dans le même cas de figure que moi et que vous n'avez pas envie d'attendre plus longtemps, je vous suggère fortement une solution alternative. Objectif de mon après-midi: mettre la main sur une copie vinyle, quitte à la payer 5€ plus cher... Evil or Very Mad Quand ça veut pas, ça veut pas...

Impossible de trouver une copie de SUN en vinyle. Je suis passé à la FNAC et dans une autre boutique: ils n'ont pas été livrés. Par contre ils avaient le Lou Doillon. Sabotage! Je suis tout de même revenu avec le CD. L'écoute se fera donc aujourd'hui, sans vinyle donc. Faute de grives... Il va falloir que je trouve une heure cet après-midi... bounce
Joli digipack, avec le titre en doré et non en noir comme je le pensais.

J'ai vu le vinyle version deluxe ce matin en vitrine, mais je ne vais pas avoir le temps de passer aujourd'hui hélas. J'espère qu'il sera toujours là demain, sinon je me contenterai d'attendre...

Bonne écoute, mon cher!...et tiens nous au courant quant à tes impressions. Very Happy

Na, nana, na na na na, na, nana, nana na, na.... music

As promised, here are my first impressions after my first listening. Honestly, i feel some kind of pressure right now. I wouldn't want to disappoint you...

First, i want to listen to it again right now, which is a good sign. The coda of Peace and Love has just finished and i must admit that i don't know what to think about the album yet. Listening for the first time to an album that you have been waiting for for such a long time is a very special experience. Apart from Cherokee and Ruin that i already knew and that may be the best songs on the album, the track that stand out is Manhattan. It's the first time on the album where i recognized "my" Cat Power, where i could really feel the emotion carried by the voice without any obvious trick of production. In fact, i felt that the record was really starting with this song because i also really enjoyed Silent Machine. The problem was and is that i already knew this song which is one my favourite from Cat Power. I love the 1998 Berkeley concert version of this song, that i consider as its ultimate version, and i must admit that it was difficult to forget it in order to focus on this 2012 version. Anyway i was singing out loud at the end of the song, which is also a good sign...

Nothin but time was also a great moment and i would not remove any single minute of it. As i read it somewhere, it would have made a perfect ending for the record.
But Peace and Love is cool too. It shows us a groovy version of Chan Marshall, with a song that i don't really know how to describe. Is it a rap? Anyway, it suits her well, even if it might shock the people who only know "The Greatest" side of her.

I'll need more time for the other songs. I was not very impressed by SUN (the song, not the album) that sounded a bit like a filler. 3,6,9 sounded cool but i'll need time as well for this one.
I don't remember Always on my own, nor Real Life. Embarassed
Human Being seemed too short.

I'm not sure that i like the auto-tune thing on the couple of songs where it's been used. It feels awkward but it's only a first impression...

So, i really loved half of the album and i would love to love the other half. It might come with next listening...

PS: after Real Life i couldn't believe that i had already listened half of the album. I was desperately waiting for the song who would knock me down. And it was Manhattan.

Ok guys, let's read your thoughts about this record now. You've been kind enough to wait for me, now is the time for your words...

Definitely a grower! happy A great, great record. I was a bit afraid after the first listening but i'm totally into it now. I feel relieved and very proud of Chan. I would put it among my favourite Cat Power records, in a completely different style.

Finally!!! Yaaay!

This album is very very good. I really love it although I was rather surprised by the "alien" sound of the synths sometimes (Sun for ex). Like she said in interviews, she experimented a lot and she certainly have a lot of fun doing it. The auto tune doesn't bother me.

I love Manhattan it's my favorite one (with Ruins), I was really shaken after hearing this song the first time. It's very catchy, touching and nostalgic.

I also really like Silent Machine (with a bluesy Chan), 3, 6, 9 (very catchy), and Nothin But Time (This song was apparently wrote for Ribisi's daughter Lucia, whatta a beautiful gift for a teenage girl, so optimistic and triumphant but in my opinion Iggy doesn't offer more to the song...but the song is great. It makes me think of an anthem).

I also really like Always on my own. I like the drums. Make me think of the old Chan from Dear Sir/Myra Lee era.

I don't like Human Being and Cherokee. I tried though... Very Happy I had the same feeling for Real Life when I first heard it but now I really enjoy it.

Peace and love is great, make me think of a protest song. It sounds a little like hip hop.

This album is also one of my favorite now.

Right now my mind is all over the place and i can't write a proper review but i'll do it later this week.
Man, this record is mind blowing. I had great expectations for this album but i didn't know what exactly i should expect but greatness. She blew my mind. very happy

I felt exactly the same! This album is brilliant and as you said in a previous post, I'm really proud of what she did.

I will continue in french Embarassed :

Elle (se) réinvente en permanence. Que ce soit lorsqu'elle fait une reprise ou quand elle sort un album. Tu te rends compte de l'évolution et du changement depuis ses débuts? (c'est purement rhétorique, je sais que tu t'en rends compte, hein! Very Happy ) Peu d'artistes ont su explorer autant de styles différents sans se casser la gueule. Oh, yeah I'm in love...again! Very Happy
