Review: Remember Us To Life by Regina Spektor

Remember Us To Life by Regina SpektorIn comparison to What We Saw From The Cheap Seats, Regina Spektor goes for subtlety in her new record Remember Us to Life. It may lack the upbeat and energetic elements of most tracks in the previous record, but this gives more leeway for Regina’s storytelling and playful falsettos. Since most of the tracks are delicately simple, few songs stand out: “Grand Hotel” may sound like something a preschool teacher would compose but with interestingly odd lyrics, “Black And White” is pure nostalgia trapped in a song, and obviously the LSS-inducing track “Bleeding Heart”. Never, never mind, bleeding heart, bleeding heart. Never, never mind your bleeding heart. Regina is definitely one of the songwriters who never run out of stories to tell. | 4/5
