Despite its once-appropriate title, the case can be made that this year’s Sun dethroned 2006’s The Greatest as the all-time, forever-and-ever, no-take-backsies best album in the Cat Power discography. Theoretically, that case might start with “Manhattan,” the five-minute lullaby that places a couple carefully pressed piano chords over a crisp drum machine beat that’s eventually interrupted by some live-action smashing. One might also argue that it’s “mature,” “sonically progressive,” and even “salubrious.” But we’ll leave the debate to the record-store clerks, what few of them remain, and head to Terminal 5 to catch one of her always-interesting performances.
