By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on May 7 2006
Format: Audio CD
Singer-songwriters are a dime a dozen. And even among the good ones, it takes something special to stand out.

And Regina Spektor stands far above your typical singer/musician, with her quirky antifolk and her eccentric songwriting. In her third album, "Soviet Kitsch," Spektor does it all her own way, as if there had never been music before, and she's just inventing her own styles.

Unlike a lot of albums, it doesn't start off with the catchiest song. Instead, it's the melancholy violin and piano of "Ode to Divorce," with Spektor singing meditatively, "So break me to small parts/Let go in small doses/But spare some for spare parts/You might make a dollar..." She sounds like the indie cousin of Fiona Apple in such songs, as well as in the cancer-themed "Chemo Limo."

But it doesn't stay bittersweet all the time. She dabbles in punk rock in the colourful "Your Honour," commiserates with a literate "poor little rich boy" who doesn't love his mom or his girlfriend, and finishes with a quiet little song about love, loneliness and sorrow. The highlight of it all is "Us," a fast-paced, rippling piano tune that is just catchy enough to catch your notice, but not enough to be annoying or poppy.

Listening to Regina Spektor is a bit like listening to a kaleidoscope -- every time you hear her, her music sounds a little different. That's not something that can be said of many artists, and it only underscores the oddball, quirky sound. You definitely won't be able to forget this, once you've got "Us" stuck in your head.

Spektor is often compared to Tori Amos and Fiona Apple, for her use of piano and some violins. Honestly, she sounds too weird to be either.

I first bought this CD because I heard some of regina's music on the T.V. show Grey's Anatomy I would have to say it is my current favourite CD. All of her songs have someting unique about them that I can't quite place my finger on and her voice gives you the chills.
This is how I would rate each song out of 5:
1. Ode To Divorce...3/5
2. Poor Little Rich Boy...5/5
3. Carbon Monoxide...5/5
4. The Flowers...3/5
5. Us...5/5
6. Sailor Song...4/5
7. *** aka whisper (not actually a song)
8. Your Honor...3/5
9. Ghost Of Corporate Future...5/5
10.Chemo Limo...5/5
11.Somedays...3/5

Format: Audio CD
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.

Having listen to this cd, several times, I have to say that I really LOVE it. What I find about this cd is that it is really different and stands out amongest all others. Regina Spektor has a wonderfull voice and the songs are very amusing to listen to. The songs all vary in mood; you have some where they are mellow and others where they are high in energy, such as "Your Honor".
The titles add to the unique taste that Regina has, such as Carbon Monoxide, Ghost of Corporate Future, & Sailor Song. Overall I really enjoyed listening to this and recommend it to anyone who wants to try something new!!!
