    Underrated? It was like top 3 most critically acclaimed albums of 2012.

    Kinda bad but with, at least, two really great songs: "Every Single Night" and "Hot Knife".

    Yep her best album. And the name of the label it was released on accurately describes it as well.

    One of the best 2nd hand finds,overall, A-. At times this Lp reminds me of the Raincoats. Nonetheless, Regards. K.d.W

    I hate when people constantly compare female artists. There are very few similarities between Regina and Fiona, so stop comparing them. Also, while I like Regina Spektor, she is not as perfect as some people make her out to be. She is a bit too obnoxious and pretentious at times.
