Regina Specktor is most probably one of the most talented singer/songwriters in the music industry today. Unlike other talented pianists who sing perky songs that are aired too often on the Radio. Specktor's sound is all in all set apart from the pop pianists. However, it may take the average listener a few listens for her eclectic style of music to grow on them. As a songwriter, she has produced six records in eleven years, the last being Far in 2009. Her style is a vast scale of revelation, ranging from firmly accompaniment to the piano to pop tunes throughout each of her records. Far truly grabs the nature of her past, emphasizing her delicate taste in the classical piano mixed with her mezzo-soprano airy voice.
What We Saw from the Cheap Seats will be her sixth studio album and it is a collection of new songs along with some early recordings, and will be available in standard and deluxe format on May 29, 2012 through Sire Records.
