For those who have never heard Spektor's unique blend of pop and folk, "Far" is a great catalyst album. Longtime fans will note that it leans more toward the pop side, but that doesn't mean that the CD lacks the clever and quirky tunes that Spektor is known for. The opening track, "The Calculation," is instantly catchy and is a prime example of Spektor's songwriting prowess (preteens take note that she could show the Jonas Brothers a thing or two about "Burning Up"), while her semi-autobiographical "Machine" is a percussionistic dream, featuring a chain-link fence as its main instrument. Other songs like "Wallet" and "Eet" are endearing and catchy, and as always, strikingly poignant. It might not top previous albums like "Begin to Hope" or "Soviet Kitsch" for most diehard fans, but "Far" is a great introductory album for anyone new to Regina Spektor.

It isn't odd that I would rate a Regina Spektor album with 5 stars. Her voice ranges from powerful to soft, sometimes in the same songs. She is an exemplary singer, and this album proves this even more. Her songs have deeper meanings, and really make you think, while also being light and fun. My favorite album by my favorite singer.

It's wonderful to listen to as one cruises down the highway, with it turned up VERY loudly, of course. I'm 62, and I think she's great!

Of what is easily fun and great about Regina Spektor, really doesn't find its way to this album. The songs are beautifully sang and wonderfully performed; which is not a surprise from this artist. On a whole this doesn't really break any new ground and doesn't have a lot jumping out at you. This is a great listen once or twice but you wont be running back to the well very much on this.

I saw Regina on the David Letterman show some time ago, and I thought she was absolutely adorable. In fact, I saved her performance and kept playing it. Finally, I bought her CD, and am thrilled to own it. Not only is she quite unusual, breathtakingly beautiful, writes her own songs, and sings like treasures every word. She puts so many other singers to shame....everyone should buy her CD.

Every song is worth listening to multiple times. I never got tired of any of them. She's topped herself with creativity, imagination, and thought-provoking lyrics and piano.

This album doesn't belie Regina's anti-folk roots, and while the overall feel is generally softer than her previous albums, it still has enough of her inimitable lyrics mixed with supple vocals and skillful instrumentation to make it still feel distinctively Spektor. This isn't an album for chilling out to, but rather one that will intrigue and fascinate, making you want to listen to it carefully and investigate all the aspects contained within, and particularly the lyrics. Moreover, the more you listen to this album, the more you find in it, both lyrically and vocally. While some may not totally approve of the slightly slicker productions on these tracks, they don't really detract from the whole, and to my mind, actually give this album a by and large more polished, if not mature sound. I'll go so far as to give it a full five stars out of five and highly recommend this one. Well done, Regina!

Incredible production, Jeff Lynne, David Kahne, Mike Elizondo, Jacknife Lee and others have brought the production chops that bring out extra facets of Regina's range as an artist. She has an ability to be the music, no explanation needed - no dissection - let her take you to her world and enjoy the magic......
