iTunes Review

When two creative individuals come together to work, the results can be either inspired or implosive. The singular singer/songwriter/pianist/arranger Regina Spektor collaborated with not one but four different producers on her fifth studio album, Far, and the result fortifies the Russian-American’s already impressive body of work. Traveling Wilbury Jeff Lynne E.L.O., Paul McCartney and David Kahne Sugar Ray, Matthew Sweet all worked with Spektor, who delves largely into the grand theme of religion. “Laughing With,” the haunting lead-off single, might have its analog in the saying “there are no atheists in foxholes.” “The Calculation” is pure joy, while “Blue Lips” evolves from a cinematically reflective introduction to an actively explorative cadence.

She Went 'Far' and Back!

The Regina we all know and love is back, taking us to new destinations with a new poppy, multi-instrumental, and most of all dazzling sound and then back home again with some classic Spektor stylings that caught our eye from the beginning. Song after song is unique and catchy; unwavering in Regina's inimitable quirks as well as some amazing musical extensions which, while some people might find compromises her originality, is undeniable proof that this unique musician can do anything with anything and with any producer and is ultimately a monument to her creativity and versatility. A little song-by-song breakdown: The Calculation: If a future hit was any more apparent, I'm not aware of it. It's incredibly catchy with an infectious beat. 10/10 Eet: Similar in style to 'Us', its melody is beautiful and gives us a fancy image of Regina's more reflective side. 8.5/10 Blue Lips: Very nice track and the addition of electric guitar strums really makes it stand out. 9/10 Folding Chair: One of Regina's live classics; it's joyfully upbeat and her dolphin imitation is epic. 8/10 Machine: The furthest extension of her multi-instrumental stylings, this may not suit everyone, but it's absolutely phenomenal. 9/10 Laughing With: Her first single is very nice, quirky, but doesn't miss out on the reflective side and is catchy to boot. 8.5/10 Human of the Year: Beautiful, passionate, or completely breathtaking? All of the above. 9/10 Two Birds: It took a couple listens, but this one is actually a great track! Her key change at the end is a highlight. 8.5/10 Dance Anthem of the 80's: Another live classic; displays signature Regina Spektor in all her glory! Wonderful. 9.5/10 Genius Next Door: The token reflective song that any Spektor album needs. Powerful imagery and ultimately beautiful. 8/10 Wallet: Perhaps my least favourite track to begin with, but it earned its place in my heart after I thought about the humour that both the music and the lyrics work together to bring out. 7/10 One More Time With Feeling: The drums are a delightful addition to this already amazing live song. Can't stop whistling this one. 10/10 Man of a Thousand Faces: My only wish with this one was that it be somewhere else in the album, not the end song. A stunning and melodic piece of musical art, but would have fit better somewhere else in my opinion. 8/10 The bonus tracks are equally as unforgetable, employing electric guitars and some poppy piano playing. Ultimately, this album is a piece of musical art that is equally beautiful as it is jumpy, poppy and undeniably Regina.

Best Work Yet!

Regina Spektor has gone far past the point of her album "Soviet Kitsch" with less randomness and more interesting melodies and lyrics. Even though "Begin to Hope" was a great album as well, "Far" is just that much... better. The Calculation -- an upbeat, happy song with great imagery. Vocals are amazing. 5/5 Eet -- to me, a sad song but lovely. one of my favourites. i still don't know what it means, but that's okay. 5/5 Blue Lips -- I love this one. Religious, but take it in any direction you want it to. Haunting, a little slower, but beautiful. 5/5 Folding Chair -- Interesting and fun. Lots of originality in lyrics and in 'dolphin song'. haha, you'll have to listen to it to find out! 4/5 Machine -- Way different from the other songs in the album, but it gives a nice change. Lots of the background music is machinery sounds. 3/5 Laughing With -- Gorgeous song. Religious again, like Blue Lips, but still lovely to listen to. Makes me cry sometimes. 5/5 Human of the Year -- Completely original, haunting, beautiful melody. Strong, powerful vocals. 5/5 Two Birds -- Very cute. Love this song so much! 5/5 Dance Anthem of the 80's -- Seriously, you'll be singing this song all day, but it's one of those songs that don't get annoying! 5/5 Genius Next Door -- okay. beautiful piano, but don't really get the meaning. A slower song. 4/5 Wallet -- One of those ideas that just makes you laugh. Fun to listen to. 4/5 One More Time Wtih Feeling -- Love it. This song almost has a different feel to it. Almost a jazzy style, but still amazing. One of her best songs. 5/5 Man of a Thousand Faces -- Slow song, but beautiful piano (again) and calming. 4/5 Time is All Around -- Nice, but not especially memorable. 4/5 The Sword & the Pen -- I don't like it as much. Slow, but not exactly like other slow songs. 3/5 Riot Gear -- Fun, but doesn't stand out. More of an upbeat song. 4/5 Regina Spektor's album "Far" is definitely my favourite album ever at the time. Gorgeous, inspiring, calming, strong, confusing, and original, she is an extremely talented singer/pianist/songwriter. If you're thinking of getting music by Regina Spektor, I suggest you start with this album, then move on to "Begin to Hope". --FR


WOW im SO happy to see Regina has a new c.d. I'm listening to it as i write this, and i am in love. I've always loved everything shes done, and this is no exception. It's beautiful. I know a lot of people know about Regina, but i love how she isn't main stream. She's like the little secret i keep in my pocket, I'd hate for her to go mainstream for the simple fact that she wouldn't be my "secret" anymore. Not that im wishing no success onto her, because that's the last thing id do. I love regina, her music, and her emotions. This is a beautiful cd. Two Birds is my favourite i think. <3 Heres to several more memories created by regina spektor, the goddess at music!!


Born: February 19, 1980 in Moscow, Russia

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

A veteran of New York's anti-folk scene, songwriter Regina Spektor makes quirky, highly eclectic, but always personal music. Born and raised in Moscow until age nine, Spektor listened to her father's bootleg tapes of Western pop and rock as a young child and also learned to play piano. She and her family moved from Russia to the Bronx, where she was immersed in American culture (at the time, hers was the first Russian family in the borough in 20 years). Eventually, Spektor and her family became part...
