Album Review

Since Regina Spektor got her start by performing wherever and whenever she could, it’s no surprise that her live show is still one of the most compelling parts of her artistry. She’s come a long, long way from scrounging for gigs in basements and comedy clubs — all the way to London’s Hammersmith Apollo theater, where she recorded the CD/DVD set Live in London.
