By prisrob TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 18 April 2013
Format: Audio CD
I first noticed Regina Spektor on the Letterman show, and she blew me away.
Her music was infectious, the words so original and descriptive. Her expressions surprising and her delivery superb. And, then I listened to her interview on NPR's 'Fresh Air'and was captivated by her style and originality. I purchased her CD and listened many times.

First of all, Regina's voice is one of the most distinctive out there. She can go from musing and romantic to silly and fun, but never frivolous. Her words and their music are too serious. Regina immigrated from Russian as a small child. She and her parents lived in New York City where she was introduced to music everyday, the Beatles, classic rock, folk songs and classical music. She studied music as a small child and then moved from classical music to her now eclectic style. She is well known for her originality and her style. Many television shows use her music, and now she has become recognized. Regina Skeptor is a classic.

Her latest CD is exciting. My favorite is the song about museums and the paintings wanting to jump off the walls, 'All The Rowboats', with her distinctive vocalizations. Then 'Ballad Of A Politician', with it's superb satire, "shaking, shaking hand; Shake It, Shake It Baby'. The other tunes fall into place and deserve a place of their own.

Regina has a constant discussion with her piano tuners about the loudness and banging that occurs. She wants a smoother, more soothing style, and, she has to let them know this is her style, this is who she is. She is a romantic unusual stylist with a voice that overcomes any singular complaint. She is superb, what more can be said?

Wonderful selection of songs. I think this is more consistent than her previous releases, despite them all having many moments of greatness. This is a really impressive album. Her singing has never sounded better and the songs are funny, charming, and catchy. It's very moving in places, too. She is a massive talent. If you have never heard a Regina album, this is a good place to start.

Special mention should go to the heartbreaking - yet very uplifting - ballad 'How'. What a great song this is!

what can i say i know i was a bit late but this was the first Regina album i heard and i instantly fell in love. I went back and bought all her past albums and i was so glad i found her music. I get that its not for everyones taste as it is very quirky and different from most people but thats what i love about her.

Quirky, inventive and captivating. A masterpiece in the sea of mediocrity that is today's music scene. Buy it today, you wont regret it.

Regina never fails to disappoint - from her early, more piano-led pieces to the constantly-shifting styles of her last few records, this isn't perhaps as immediately commercial as the chart-friendly 'Far', having more in common with the experimental side of 'Soviet Kitsch' or 'Begin To Hope'. When she writes a good pop song, it sings in your very heart and soul, but when she tries something different it's always delivered with such love and attention that you have to get swept along by it. Another fine piece of work.

An amazing album. When i listen to it, the vocals, rhythm and harmony make it like listening to a Broadway show. There's ups' downs, happies and sads.
She's like a fresh new Tori Amos.
Love her ...love the album....what a clever girl!
Strongly recommended.

Some may say that the move over to a more commercial sound is a bad thing, me - as a major Regina fan just think that this is evolution...

For me, the stand-out tracks are 'How', and 'Firewood', which - to be fair are more in line with Regina's older style, but - I do not think there is a single lemon on the whole album...

If you're a Regina fan, and are put off by some of the people who do say that this is too commercial, just remember, Regina isn't the kind of woman that would sell her soul to the devil ;o)
