Oh my GOD! This is one damn fine album and Regina Spektor is one damn fine performer!
I had heard a couple of tracks on the radio (which pretty much divided listeners into love and hate). Being attracted to it I took a gamble. Worth it in bucketloads. For some of you it may be a turn off if I say I find her to be the female equivalent of Rufus Wainwright - maybe its the piano - but this is the kind of quirk that I can easily love (as opposed to a certain Mercury Music winner that still brings me out in hives).
Anyway, I say that she's worth a listen. There appear to have been a fair few comments on her in recent times, equally not sure how to take her. Check out here and here and here for an overview/interview.
