A new Regina Spektor album is long overdue.

The problem, from my perspective, is that the best songs on this album are not as good as the best songs on her albums "Far" and "Begin to Hope". If you're new to Regina Spektor, I think the best album to start with is "Far". (Her contributions to the 500 Days of Summer soundtrack are also really good). This album ("What We Saw from the Cheap Seats") is just not as emotionally engaging or moving as her previous efforts. http://www.robertchristgau.com/get_artist.php?name=Regina+Spektor

I found this CD to be a disappointment, personally. I've seen Regina Spektor live and loved her. She's a witty, entertaining, intelligent, and quirky singer songwriter. At this point, her recordings and songwriting seem like "more of the same." Much as I'd love to give a glowing rating to this effort, I can't. NPR reviews the CD positively at their website
(http://www.npr.org/2012/05/20/152939196/first-listen-regina-spektor-what-we-saw-from-the-cheap-seats) saying "On What We Saw From the Cheap Seats, as on its predecessors, even the weirdest moment comes in service of warmth that's as kind and necessary as an old friend." So it all depends on your perspective!
