this cd has done nothing short of change my entire outlook on music in general, especially in the area of vocals. the sheer acrobatics regina spektor is able to put her voice through never ceases to astonish me, as it will all listeners. her magnificient piano-driven songs will give you chills, and will inspire and motivate musical growth and experimentation in audiences of all types. one warning only: her voice is honestly so spectacular that all other vocalists will dull in comparision after owning this album. definitely in my list of top 20 cd's any indie fanatic, or music lover of any kind for that matter, should own.
the best songs on soviet kitsch, in my opinion, include ode to divorce, us, and ghost of corporate future.
