Detractors of Regina Spektor's particular brand of clown-nose gutpunch pop will be delighted to know that this is an actual lyric from her new album, What We Saw From the Cheap Seats. Neither as inert as the syrupy Far but still lacking the roller coaster-whiplash of Soviet Kitsch's tonal shifts, What We Saw From the Cheap Seats moves at the pace of a parade float. And though it's not a particularly thrilling ride, it's a speed that allows Spektor's roving eye to document plenty of observations: The bubblegum marching-band number "Don't Leave Me (Ne Me Quitte Pas)" watches kids in the Bronx "sledding down snow-covered slopes," while the lead-off single "All the Rowboats" tries to personify the inanimate objects.
The cliché about Regina Spektor is that she's quirky, kind of a kook – the indie Phoebe from Friends. Like most clichés, it's not completely unwarranted: she used her last album to imitate dolphin noises and once wrote a song called Reading Time with Pickle.

Colin McCracken gives us his view on the latest Regina Spektor album What we Saw from the Cheap Seats. It was with 2004’s ËSoviet Kitsch’ that Spektor was catapulted into the public sphere with great force. Her quirky, reflective lyrics balanced alongside playful and investigative compositions made for a unique and enjoyable experience. Almost a decade later and not too much has changed within Regina’s music, so why does ËWhat We Saw Â¦’ leave the listener with very few of the aforementioned positive emotions upon completion? There are several reasons for this . Times have changed since Regina Spektor first came on the scene. The cutsie-pie, cartoon existence of adorable ditziness combined with a childlike view of the world is altogether too prevalent in contemporary culture.
