Regina Spektor, "Far" (Sire)
Quirky female singer with gorgeous voice known for both her precise pronunciation and piano playing comes back strong with her latest release. It's hard to imagine three more diverse producers than Mike Elizondo, Jeff Lynne and Jackknife Lee, all of whom worked on "Far." First single, "Laughing With," is an interesting take on God and what makes him laugh.
