Why the world goes slow.

Who but Regina Spektor could pull off a gorgeous & catchy song that just so happens to contain the phrase "macaroni pieces"? Regina Spektor makes beautiful music, and she is sort of weird. If you've listened to any of her other albums in entirety, then you know both of these things. If you haven't, then this is as good a place to start as any. Far is her fifth release (her second major-label one) and boasts the same insanely catchy melodies, lovely piano and vocals, and, well, weird stories as her other work. There might be a few too many songs here but when she's good, she's good and therefore it's forgiveable. 4/5 stars.
