Regina Spektor – Remember Us to Life
Released September 30th, 2016
Remember Us to Life delivers stunning songs with intriguing unconventionality and her brand of pop appeal. Whether her writing is a little more accessible, or we all got a little weirder to meet her in the middle the album still manages to call back to her earliest work while still being undeniably fresh. With Remember Us to Life, Spektor foregoes some of the whimsical narratives on previous albums and digs back into more personal thoughts, showcasing her inimitable vocals and piano talents. Her style is still niche, but Spektor’s growth as a musician and a storyteller lets her piano do a lot of the talking, in harmony with her voice. As a result Remember Us to Life is one of Spektor’s most carefully considered and elegant statements to date.
