EDITORS’ NOTES

Framed in orchestral arrangements both lavish and restrained, the tracks on Regina Spektor’s seventh album add depth and nuance to her dynamic songcraft. She’s still given to coy lyrical turns that reveal twists with each verse and choruses that creep skyward, exploding like fireworks. Here, her melodies eschew jubilance for sweeping, theatrical minor keys (“Sellers of Flowers”); she builds turbulent, Fiona Apple-caliber drama with mournful phrases that crest over plangent bass notes (“The Trapper and the Furrier”). The effect is guileless and profoundly gorgeous.

Powerful Music

Ms. Spektor has succeeded in creating one of the most stirring sets of original work I have heard. Her voice and piano draw you in. Her lyrics offer an artistic commentary on our modern life . She expresses many of our internal thoughts, bringing them to light and making us feel.
Get it. You will enjoy it!

Incredible!

Powerful, thoughtful, and subtly nuanced lyrics. My favorite album ever.

Sarcastic Lemon ,

One of Regina's Strongest Efforts

Lyrically powerful, each song contains the depth and power that other artists can only cram in an album. Her eclectic work shines and dazzles, all the while keeping its feet on the ground, and its pathos genuine.
