Russian-born New York-based singer-songwriter Regina Spektor
debuted with two self-released albums, 11:11 (2001) and Songs (2002), that displayed her eccentric theatrical singing and her "antifolk" lyrics.
Back Of A Truck,
2.99 Cent Blues,
I Want To Sing,
Soviet Kitsch (Sire, 2004), containing Ghost of Corporate Future,
Ode To Divorce,
Poor Little Rich Boy,
* * *,
Ghost Of Corporate Future,
She progressively turned more and more mainstream sound with plenty of keyboards and drum-machines on
Begin To Hope (Sire, 2006), with On the Radio,
and the stale Far (Sire, 2009), with Folding Chair and The Calculation.
She tried to specialize in quirky pop-soul ballads on
What We Saw from the Cheap Seats (2012), which would be an interesting
genre in itself, but the quirkiness is too often trivial and her melodies
somewhat frustrating. The format (and her classical-inspired piano playing)
works well in
slow-tempo meditations on love like Firewood and How.
