3.0 out of 5 stars Great singing, bad special effects
This is a fine song beautifully sung with piano accompaniment, but the producer decided to randomly add some background noises like airplanes, machine guns, sirens, etc. I can't tell if it's satire, a song about wartime, a "busy city" NYC type setting, or what, but it is very distracting to me!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice New Year Song, December 4, 2011

This review is from: My Dear Acquaintance [A Happy New Year] (MP3 Music)
Regina Spektor does a fine job with this simple New Year's song. The message of the song is universal; the lyrics are simple; the sole piano accompaniment is pleasant.

Give it a try. You might like it.

From the album 'Gift Wrapped: 20 Songs That Keep On Giving' and arranged in a modern style, 'My Dear Acquaintance [A Happy New Year]' is a keeper.

Its a nice addition to my holiday collection.

I only got one single so I can hardly recommend the entire album. But Ms. Spektor is in fine form.

Can't complain about a free song for library.

Amazon offered it for free so I downloaded it.

Not my choice of music but not the worst music in the world.

I'm not sure why I like it. I just do. It's Christmas music and think that alone says it all.
