The new album Remember Us To Life continues to receive extensive critical acclaim:
“Our generation’s Joni Mitchell…has long made a habit of spinning fictional, winding tales into songs that utilize humor and absurdity for the purpose of pointed social commentary. Her new LP is no different.” –Esquire
“A pop eccentric wraps underdog storytelling in brilliant songcraft.” –Rolling Stone
￼“[‘Black and White’ is] is a gorgeous, soaring ode to love and heartache.” –NPR Music
“[Remember Us To Life] includes everything from sophisticated piano-powered pop to R&B chants to orchestral arrangements.”–Entertainment Weekly
“‘Bleeding Heart’ is classic Regina Spektor whimsy and a sonic roller coaster, hitting peaks of bubbly pop, cruising through a sudden burst of drum-heavy rock, until it eventually slows down for some effective piano balladry.” –New York Magazine / Vulture
"The Moscow native has spent her life blending genres, and this eclectic seventh LP is no different.” –People
“In many ways it’s classic Spektor, lilting and lovely with percussive twists and glossy pop polish, but ‘Bleeding Heart’ also embraces nimble strings and surprising synths that skip throughout.” –Vice Noisey
“[‘Black and White’] would probably get me even if her high, distinctive voice weren’t seared into my memory from years ago. It’s a beautiful, sad song about really loving someone.” –USA Today
“To be unshaken by Spektor is to be dispassionate towards complex emotions. While the piano keys she so effortlessly plays might well be black and white, her music is as colorful and vibrant as ever.” –Consequence of Sound
“The first singles for Remember Us To Life are packed with Spektor’s signature off-kilter pop.” –A.V. Club
