Moon Pix is the fourth studio album by American singer-songwriter Chan Marshall, also known by her stage name, Cat Power, originally released in September 1998 via Matador Records.

Prior to recording Moon Pix, Marshall had planned to retire from the music business, relocating to Portland, Oregon and Prosperity, South Carolina; however, after experiencing a hallucinatory nightmare while staying in a rural farmhouse, Marshall wrote the bulk of Moon Pix in a single night.

In January 1998, Marshall traveled to Melbourne, Australia, to record the album with Mick Turner and Jim White, of the Australian instrumental band Dirty Three, on guitar and drums, respectively. Most of Moon Pix was recorded at Sing Sing Studio in Melbourne by house engineer Matt Voigt.  The album also features Belinda Woods on flute and Andrew Entsch on double bass.

No singles were released for Moon Pix, although a music video directed by Brett Vapnek was released for the song Cross Bones Style.

Moon Pix has been called Cat Power's "magnum opus" and "a true masterpiece of emotional shading and compositional clarity." Critics cited it as evidence of Marshall's maturation as a songwriter, with Heather Phares of AllMusic writing that "Moon Pix continues Chan Marshall's transformation from an indie rock Cassandra into a reflective, accomplished singer/songwriter." Rob Sheffield of Rolling Stone called it "even stronger" than her previous album, What Would the Community Think (1996), and wrote that "it still holds up as one of the Nineties great singer/songwriter triumphs."

Check out a couple of tracks from the album:  American Flag, No Sense, Say, Back of Your Head, You May Know Him and Colors and the Kids.

This LP Record is a reissue (June 2012) on 120 gram vinyl with a digital download, pressed in the US.
