4.0 excellentAdrian Hertzberg CONTRIBUTOR | May 22nd 12

*demeaning comment about her being an attractive woman and therefore desperate for my cock* -- there you go, I just summed up 90% of the upcoming "discussion" for this album

This cover doesn't have her deep throating a domestic beer bottle 0/5.

Regina chirps, buzzes, oohs, and ahhs her way to another splendidly odd but amazing album

She's attractive?

5.0 classicFusters | February 25th 13

Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but if you listen to this album, and really LISTEN to it, to the melodies, to her voice, to her lyrics, I don't see how a fan of hers cannot be entranced by this album. I'm able to find meaning in each lyric, and when I discovered why she wrote "Jessica", the song hit me on a completely different level and brought me to tears. This girl has a way to relate to humanity through music like none other I can think of.

Regina Spektor proves how talented she is as a singer/songwriter with one of the most impressive pop releases of 2012. "What We Saw From The Cheap Seats" is creative and at times beautiful, but always fun and quirky. Very well executed pop album with exceptional vocals and an undeniable charm.

4.5 superbYup | June 18th 12

Regina Spektor's last album, 2009's Far, found the singer-songwriter at her most accessible. This move seemed to put off long-time fans (as my myself), Spektor's appeal before finding her way to VH1 was her offkilter songwriting. With WHAT WE SAW FROM THE CHEAP SEATS, Spektor has returned to the fun, strange songwriting that initially brought her into the spotlight. WHAT WE SAW FROM THE CHEAP SEATS is hard to predict. Not only do songs range in tempo, tone, and mood from one song to the next, these shifts can happen mid-song The changes in style never feel like Spektor is aping a genre or playing the chameleon; instead, it feels as if Spektor's imagination is running wild in the studio. The result is an interesting, fun album. One of the problems I have with CHEAP SEATS is that it feels scattershot. While the album gets a strong start, the closer, "Jessica" doesn't quite feel like a good way to wrap up the album.

Probably weirder than ever before, but still just as good!
