i don't understand why people compare the two. i enjoy both regina and tori's music, but objectively speaking tori's piano playing alone is lightyears more brilliant and complex than regina's. and people are always quick to say that tori's lyrics are dark and depressing and self centered, but if you actually take the time to read her lyrics, only a handful of her songs are actually about herself.
i think regina is very talented...but not anywhere nearly as talented as tori. i'm pretty open minded, but objectively speaking tori's piano skills alone are lightyears more brilliant and complex than regina's. and i don't understand how people can say that the difference between tori and regina is that tori wallows and self pity and depression and all that...if you read her actual lyrics, only a few song are actually about herself. that frustrates me.
