    true beauty

    regina spektor has a wonderful voice. her music holds beauty & grace & it still sounds real, like it's coming from her heart. she plays with her voice, crackling & warbling, & you can tell shes having fun & just expressing herself in the way she knows best. it's a great cd, every song is good & unique. you haven't heard anything like it. give it a listen you'll see what i mean :)

    Begin to Hope is a MUST HAVE!!!

    After hearing the song Fidelity on XM, I knew I had to have this CD! I got the CD and was blown away ... every song delivers. Spektor's lyrics are quirky, but witty and her voice is uncoventional, but absolutely amazing! That's what makes this CD a must have ... buy it, and you won't be disappointed!

    Unique Voice and Sound

    Very untraditional timing and sometimes off-beat in a simply delightful way. Characteristic voice that can carry wonderfully with ability to stop/start crisply. Just two steps to the left of the usual "alternative" sound. Not too reckless but, rather, clearly defined and unassuming. Sweet and melancholy at times and other times beautifully powerful.

    The Best CD I've Heard This Year

    This CD is amazing... She has a bit of the Tori Amos and Fiona Apple sound, but this cd is truly fantastic.

    Amazing Talent

    This is Regina Spektor, and she has an amazing voice, at first, I only liked Soviet Kitch because it came out on my birthday, but Fidelty and SK are great albums, and Regina has a beautiful voice. If you've never listened to Regina, you are missing out on a lot.

    AWESOME

    Spektor has an AMAZING voice with a bit of an accent.. she reminds me of a Norah Jones but with more catchier songs.. my personal favorite is "Samson." Spektor also accompanies her singing with piano and the sound is amazing. Buy this cd, you won't regret it.
