Okay, Here's my go at a song-by-song review:
"The Calculation"- It will deffinitely grow on me but it a lil honky tonky :-P
"Eet"- Was incredible from the moment I heard it in the video and it still impresses me.
"Blue Lips"- Although I LOVE the original, and this is one of those OVER-produced songs on the album, the song itself is still incredible.
"Folding Chair"- It actually took this album for me to really get into this song but now I can't stop wiggling while I listen
"Machine"- It is abstract and therefore, needs more analysis ironically enough. Great ending, but it's definitely one of those "oh, Regina, you got bored didn'tcha? :-P"
"Laughing With"- I, at first didnt understand why she had made this her single, but it's such an affective song and appropriate for the times. Bootiful!
"Human of the Year"- Her greatest triumph on this album! She didn't over-do it but she still beefed up some parts and let her voice soar even higher than what we're used to. MASTERPIECE!
"Two Birds"- My favorite of the New Material. It's just impossible to be sad/down/upset/morose/anything but happy while listening to this song.
"Dance Anthem of the 80's"- Perfect amounts of Regina-Quirk mixed with just enough production.
"Genius Next Door"- Just like Human Of The Year, this song is haunting as ever and with the production it really crawls into your skin.
"Wallet"- This is the way it played in my head when I would hear her do it live / on youtube vids of other concerts. The choirs make it something on a whole other level.
"One More Time With Feeling"- I almost didn't recognize it, and, in fact, still to this point it's almost like a whole new song. It sort of stands next to the old version as it's prettied-up sister.
"Man of a Thousand Faces"- To avoid reitterating the same point, see "Human of the year" and "Genius Next Door". Like another stixer said, "This song sounds like breathing."
