      a Review by Anna Maria Stjarnell

      Regina Spektor's "Songs" is a sparse recording with just her voice and piano. It's more than enough to make these songs interesting though. Regina's lovely voice and piano come to their right here.

      "Oedipus" has clever words and an appealing melody.

      "Prisoners" is intense despite the low-key instrumentation. Regina Spektor's words of the prisoners' hard life and quirky vocal delivery is very affecting.

      "Consequence of Sounds" is a sweet meditation on the art of creation. Spektor's voice at times takes on a resemblance to Bjork's.

      "Aching to Pupate" is a capella and Spektor uses her voice like it was an orchestra.

      "Songs" is a very nice record that deserves to be heard.
