The album has its own distinct feel, sound and theme, as her albums always seem to do, somewhat like concept albums that make connections not readily understood but found as we absorb with each additional listen all that is offered on each album she has released.
Regina's delectable offerings herein are new spins on what we love about her, her piano based ballads and idiosyncratic, uniquely Regina songs with quirky jazz, rock, pop and blues infused "anti-folk" as her music has come to be defined sound, and with her unconventional but beautiful voice gloriously bellowing lyrics only she can write, bizarre but understandable, eccentric and creative, poetic, ironic or both, or just mockingly fun.
So, the day has come and I have listened to the album four times today: the first listen a joyful return to unknown Regina, having never heard the majority of the album there were four singles released prior, so I had some feel for what to expect ; the second listen a chance to absorb the musical landscape painted so beautifully; the third with an ear for the lyrics, the words written as only Regina can; the fourth a listen to each song as a part of the album as a whole. I must say that I cannot hear one weak song.
As an aside, I couldn't help but notice that there are a couple of brilliant songs, were they presented without vocals, that are furiously and gloriously Mozartian in feel and I love the deep and dark chord progressions, but I digress This is a powerful album and Regina remains the queen of her self-carved niche in music. Certainly there are standouts, but there is no fluff here, no fill material to round out the album. Concerning the bonus tracks, they are all wonderful, reminiscent of Regina offerings from the past but still somehow different and piano heavy, in a good way.
So, there you have it, the opinion of someone you do not and will not ever know, but we share our love of Regina and that makes you pretty damn cool with me. Regina paints her masterpiece with beautifully realized songs, some fierce, some heartbreaking, all thoroughly realized in performance, production, and orchestration. Can not listen to it enough. What a revelation. Saw the Charlie Rose interview of Regina last month and thought "where has she been; how did I miss this musical genius?
This album is beautiful. Brings back memories of my long life. Love her voice. Will be acquiring all her albums. Going to her concert in April here in LA. It's always a happy week or month or year for me when there is a new Regina Spektor CD that I can devour on repeat. While this isn't my favorite out of all her albums, there are some fantastic songs on it.
