I know I might get castrated for saying this but I thought Regina Spektor's debut, Soviet Kitsch, was really overrated (kind of like Fiona Apple's new "groundbreaker" ... uch, snooze.). But, after hearing the first single off Regina's new album, Begin to Hope, I might just have to give my fellow Jewess a second chance. This song is sweet, sexy and coy with colorful lyrics, some hand clapping and dramatic piano. She has a powerful voice that has a slight Bjork whininess to it. She even name checks "November Rain" -- how many anti-folkies are going to talk about hearing Axl on the radio?

Thanks to Gorilla vs. Bear for making me want to listen to it!
