From jhuik
This my first Cat Power and I like it a lot. Energetic and -- yes -- sunny.

From Hayden
I admit, I'm disappointed in BEA. Our top 100 of 2012 is pitiful. We have about 40 albums in it that aren't even worth listening to, yet albums like this aren't even in the top 200 of the year... It's surprising. This barely misses my top 50 of the year, but I'd definitely recommend it still.

On first listen, this sounded like a feist album. This is quite unlike any cat power album i remember. Previously, she used to languish in introspection over organic alt/folk/rock. She's uptempo and beat-driven with chorus hooks aplenty throughout the album that is more slickly produced than usual for her. (Is that auto-tune i hear? And what's with the techno-like effects in "silent warning"?) This album could very likely cause cat power diehards to cry "sell out!". But unlike liz phair, i don't sense calculation here. Instead, it feels like a letting loose, and i sure like it.
