Regina Spektor is pop music queen. Her voice shines through the absolute glut of pop-ladies-in-waiting like a beacon of hope for what could be. There is no metaphorical longing or thinly veiled euphemism at her piano; she says what she’s thinking. She says “fuck” and she means it; she talks about sex and cocaine and doesn’t pretend to be a virgin to sell records. Spektor is legit and Live in London is the proof.
