Good Old Regina
on 8 April 2010
The first album I ever got by Regina Spektor was Begin to Hope, which was lovely and quirky. Then Far came out and it was more mainstream but still amazing and unique.
This one is before Begin to Hope and slides that way on the quirkiness scale. It is not mainstream at all and is totally Regina. I find it hard saying who she sounds like because there is no one. Perhaps if you like Laura Marling, or The Dresden Dolls, or Patti Smith, or Dory Previn, you may like her, as I do.
This album is more... rough and uncut than her latest one. It experiments with her voice and keeps you listening for the next strange encounter. I really recommend this for someone wanting to try something new, but warning, it's not for everyone.
