Regina Spektor – May 7, 2006 – Chop Suey
by Ashley Graham
Holy 180°, Miss Spektor! The soon-to-be-released Begin to Hope is such a departure from what we’ve come to know and love about you! But you know what the really crazy part is? I still love it so much! I hardly recognize that “Fidelity” and “Better” are the same Regina I heard on Soviet Kitsch, but, dammit, those songs are fantastic! And adding Nick Valensi on guitar on “Better”? Just, totally lovely. “Samson” and “Apres Moi” brought me back to original Regina, which I appreciate. It’s a great mixture and so refreshing to see someone stepping outside of the comfort zone of their past work with such excellent results. Read: “That Time.” Nice work!
Regina Spektor hits Chop Suey on May 7 and if it’s anything like her last local appearance at the Croc, it’ll be fantastic and magical. Don’t miss it!
