"Far" Regina's Next Album :D

Recommended Posts

Oh my gosh, Genius Next Door is so minimally produced!!!!

EDIT: My friend just had an interesting speculation about Machine. I showed her the lyrcs on reginaspektor.org, and she goes, "Maybe she's hinting us in on something in the future that we're not supposed to know!" And then I realized MAYBE SHE'S FROM THE FUTURE. And my friend said this, "I was totally thinking that. She could be from a future where the music she makes is the same genre as the popular music, so she decided to come back in time (because they have the technology) and bring her music to our time. Her time travel machine would be blue and she would have arrived in Russia wearing a future suit. People looked at her funny so she came to new york."

Hahhahaha.

Sorry guys, went out to get something to eat and didn't realize there might be problems with the file...it's a rar so you need something like 7-zip or winrar to get it unpacked, inside there are the mp3's. It's a rip from the original flv files, no higher quality available, though it says 128kbps it's probably just upscale encode cause it sounds to me like a 96kbps. Download, enjoy and support Reg by buying it.

As an avid Birdwatcher I just had to download "Two Birds", albeit very much against my principles! Eeker

Those links take about 12 seconds to download, even on my old Computer set-up, so thank you kindly for that, I will be ordering TWO "Far" albums shortly, so my conscience is appeased. Wink

"Two birds on a wire, one tries to fly away" Roll Eyes

Not quite up to Leonard Cohen's standard, but enjoyable nonetheless! Cool

Yep, you're right! There's definitely something going on. The whole "I collect my moments....I am part of a composite" passage reminds of 1984 and then "The future, It's here, It's bright, It's now" sounds like one of those mottos.

Big brother's watching...

I actually first thought about it when she said something about her "pre-war apartment" and then "now my post-war apartment" and taking apart the world. But I hadn't thought about "the future, it's here" part. verrry cool/interesting/probably not even correct. hahaha

THIS ALBUM IS SO GOOD.

So i listened just to One More Time With Feeling.

that's all i wanted to hear-- if it was ruined or not!

And most people here seem to be hating it, but as one person who was absolutely in LOVE with the original live version. i totally understand this album version.

It takes on a completely different personality. not a BAD or OVERPRODUCED personality. It isn't as much so longggingg and depresssingggg and sadd

its more of regina speaking her mind.

And listening to it, i can see that i think this is how she envisioned it in her mind./

maybe it wasnt supposed to be so somber!

regardless, the live version suits me more, but the Far version is great too!

the high note "fiiiiiiiiiiiiightttt" is RIDICULOUS! (amazing)

so its very different, but not bad or ruined!
