I bought this CD without hearing any of the songs, because I was looking for a DRM-free download of her latest CD and couldn't find one. I was incredibly surprised by how good this CD was! The spare arrangements perfectly complement the almost-but-not quite bluesy melodies and Regina's amazing vocal acrobatics. This was the first CD I've bought in years that I listened to all the way through without getting bored, and I've liked a lot of those CDs. This CD never gets boring, and never takes itself too seriously. Great pick.

While I really like her new album "Far" and have nothing but good things to say about her other albums, this early release has sparse production/bare bones but her voice really shines and this album is one that really needs to be heard also. A really good early work by Ms. Spektor.

Fiona Apple needs to move over.

"Love Affair" kicks off this raw album with a flair that reaches out to all of us engineers who know we're every damn bit as good as those doctors and law-awyers!

My initial reaction to this album was, "What cut-rate studio released this thing?" My quest to answer that reveled a truly valuable gem in my music library.

11:11 is a rare peek into the past. It's a time capsule, if you will, of a true artist who has since blossomed and grown into a media magnate. Listen to these raw beats and coarse lyrics in a time when Regina didn't have the financial backing to hire an expensive producer, musical accompaniment, promoter, or even a CD jacket designer! What you'll experience is the genuine look and feel of Regina in her purest form displaying her passion and musical integrity.

While her latest Warner Brothers funded effort, "Begin to Hope," offers a much more compelling and inspiring body of work with songs such as "Fidelity," "Better," and "On the Radio," at times it can feel too perfect. We almost lose touch with Regina because she becomes untouchable. 11:11, on the other hand, allows us to reach back to a better day when fancy studio cuts were only a fantasy and music was to be enjoyed as a spontaneous form of art.

If you, as I, are in love with "Begin to Hope," buy this album and own a piece of Regina Spektor before she made it big. Embrace the raw cuts for their integrity, and revel in a body of work that allows you to see into the soul of a magnificent performer.

And if Regina is reading this, won't you come to San Antonio?

Regina Spektor first caught my attention with the poppy hits from Begin to Hope. Since then, I haven't been able to get enough of the woman. Her voice is beautiful and versatile, her music is catchy and interesting, and her delivery is flawless.

While I love the newer albums by Spektor, I've also discovered how much I enjoy the more stripped down and experimental sound of 11:11. It's much more subdued than anything from Soviet Kitsch on, but it has all of the sincerity and wit that would later make her almost famous.

Anyone who's listened to anything by Regina Spektor ever knows that she writes some lyrics that leave you wondering where that could have come from. She rarely picks the simplest or most expected way to say anything. 11:11 takes that to a whole new extreme, especially in songs like "Back of a Truck," "Mary Ann" and "Pavlov's Daughter." Also, I don't think Spektor ever wrote any more songs as raw and nakedly emotional as "Braille," "Buildings," or "Rejazz."

11:11 is an album with a lot of range, more than even the most diverse Regina Spektor albums that would follow it. It's full of love and pain and Spektor's unique sense of humor, which goes back and forth between tender and quirky to brutal. She sings about death, and love that's lost or not going anywhere, and murder, and alcoholism and depression, and single motherhood.

Whether or not some of the songs on 11:11 are really autobiographical, every single one is given the sincerity and tenderness that it deserves. No sensitive subject is treated lightly or like it isn't of vital importance to the singer and audience, and that's what makes even the most outlandish stories feel close to home.

You can never go wrong with Regina. For those who aren't too familiar with her older stuff, this album is soulfully jazzy. Regina's lyrics are whimsical and her voice is powerful enough to knock you out of your seat (that is if you are sitting). She has a style that is innovative and interesting for anyone to enjoy.

The only reason that I got this album is because I'm already a fan of Regina's later, commercially-released work. So I came to it prepared to be charitable, to view it as an attempt by a promising amateur to explore American music - i.e. to learn the box, so that she could later break out of that box with her own style. No charity was needed. Although she must have "learned the box" somewhere and sometime, by the time she made this album she had it down pat, and was already breaking out at the corners.

This is a brilliant collection, very different from all of her others, but still entirely her own. Some of these songs explore unpleasant aspects of human nature. Some, mostly on the blue side, are about love. Some, and these are the ones that can get you teary-eyed, are about ordinary folks caught in not necessarily terrible, but life-wasting situations that they don't know how to escape. Regina doesn't offer easy answers, and yet, her trademark quirkiness often shines a smile through the tears.

I don't know how she does it, but on the occasions that she adds some lighthearted word play, or image, or quirk of intonation to a heartbreaking story, it never comes across as insensitive or mocking. It's like a ray of sun from behind the clouds, sometimes hinting that there are things to celebrate even in a dark hour, at other times hinting that "yes, there is something more to life than what you've seen so far." With these songs, Regina again strikes gold.
