The album starts with a lilting, rhythm driven, medium tempo number. Cat Power's voice gently pours over the piano melody, breathy but substantial. The track sets the tone for the rest of the album and although there are brief moves in and out of "country", and the "blues", the overall tone of the album does not develop or vary much as the album progresses. It has an intimate and mellow feel, and although it starts of with a gentle punch, it peaks quickly and the tracks start to blend into each other. This is probably partly due to the fact that Cat rarely extends her voice, either to the extremes of pitch or volume. Although her Indie/Folk style will appeal to some, for me it's the sort of album that is pleasant, but forgettable. Definitely not the greatest.
