Soviet Kitsch is great. But you really should check out Begin To Hope. It was kind of her commercial breakthrough I guess and is an amazing album.

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one's laughin at God when they're starving or freezing or so very poor
No one laughs at God when the doctor calls after some routine tests
No one's laughin at God when it's gotten real late and their kid's not back from that party yet
No one laughs at God when their airplane starts to uncontrollably shake
No one's laughin at God when they see the one they love hand in hand with someone else and they hope that they're mistaken
No one laughs at God when the cops knock on their door and they say "We got some bad news, sir"
No one's laughin at God when there's a famine, fire, or flood

But God can be funny
When at a cocktail party listening to a good God-themed joke
Or when the crazies say "He hates us" and they get so red in the head you think they're 'bout to choke
God can be funny when told he'll give you the money if you just pray the right way
And when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus
God can be so hilarious
Ha ha
Ha ha

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one laughs at God when they've lost all they got and they don't know what for
No one laughs at God on the day they realize the last sight they'll ever see is a pair of hateful eyes
No one's laughin at God when they're sayin their goodbyes

But God can be funny
When at a cocktail party listening to a good God-themed joke
Or when the crazies say "He hates us" and they get so red in the head you think they're 'bout to choke
God can be funny when told he'll give you the money if you just pray the right way

No one's laughing at God
No one's laughing at God
No one's laughing at God
We're all laughing with God.

Begin has great songs, but I don't think it even can hold Soviet Kitsch's jock.


I think "Laughing With" is gorgeous and bit of a new direction for her. The arrangement is lovely. I could listen to this girl sing all day.

I'm going to keep bumping this even though nobody cares. There's a new video for a new song. It's called "Eet" and I think it's the best song I've ever heard. You should seriously watch eet.

It's not that I don't care. I really do. I adore Regina. I just like listening to albums straight through when I can. While all these songs floating around now certainly is tempting, I'd rather have the entire thing and make a run through it. I've heard "Laughing With," though, and I do love it.

Let me first of say that I like Eet.

Now let me blaspheme and say that something about it reminds me of Vanessa Carlton.

Better it remind you of Vanessa Carlton than Vanessa Hudgens. Unless you're GAF.

I'm surprised this album hasn't showed up on any less than reputable interwebs sites yet.

Would that be "A Thousand Miles" era Vanessa Carlton or "White Houses" era Vanessa Carlton?

Just finished listening to Soviet Kitsch, probably on the third time since I purchased it. I'm enjoying it a lot more now, and will be on the look out for Begin to Hope. "Laughing With" is good, so this will probably be an eventual purchase.

She has such a lovely voice. And I tend to fall in love hard with quirks, of which she has many.

Just got this yesterday and after two listens I am incredibly bored. It's a shame too because I adore her. Hope you guys like it more than I did...

That's too bad, EP.

I don't know, I've heard five tracks off the album. Laughing With, Blue Lips, Folding Chair, Dance Anthem of the 80s, and Eet. I dig all five of those songs...they've each got their own distinct style (especially Dance Anthem. That song is nutz) and I think they stand up pretty well to her stuff. So I pretty much like the album already even though I've heard less than half of it. If that makes any sense.

I was pretty excited when I saw that Jeff Lynne produced several songs, but I admit, I have not spent much time with it either.

That piqued my interest as well, but I haven't listened to anything yet.
