I'm glad to hear a glimpse that the album is not going to be quite as piano/vocal solo as Soviet Kitsch was.. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love piano-based songwriters (I kinda am one) but I also like when people try new things in the studio. Personally "Fidelity" is not at all one of my favourite Reginasongs, and I think the new version is actually a bit more interesting than the solo one. "Better" is lovely, live and studio..
I don't feel a comparison needs to be made between live vs. studio - they SHOULD be different, imo. If all Regina's albums just sounded like studio-quality live recordings (essentially like "Songs") then how can she ever grow/experiment? And to me the songs don't sound like Regina's lost the ownership of them...
Just some thoughts
i dont feel the motivation to read this whole thread but i would like to say that i agree with this post completley.
i liked to hear the new songs and know Regina is moving forward.
Hopefully Regina doesn't loose her touch with all the hype of fastfood music out there. I mean look PJ Harvey managed to keep things her way despite the music labels request. I think Regina will either be drowned with techno beats to catch those attention who are unappreciative of a great voice and who need stimulanting beats. Or Regina could just be having a transition in her artistic growth. Whatever is different, I feel hopefully, will change for the better if not just be laying low. I hate when Artist become popular. That only means no more lounge seat performances only ampitheatre lawn seats.
Lets just hope for the best and continue to be supportive.
