When The Lyrics Matter, Wilco, Regina Spektor, 'Dark Was The Night' Concert Highlight

Are you a lyrics person? Do the words matter so much that, if they aren't any good, you'll put down a CD after one listen? Bob Boilen certainly is, and does. The new Regina Spektor CD, Far, is full of beautiful and intriguing words. On the blog, tell us what you think.

Also on this episode of All Songs Considered: Wilco returns with a stronger effort; a concept record from Loxsly; Years, an ambient guitar experiment from a Do Make Say Think member; the dreamy pop of Starlight Mints; violinist and singer-songwriter Christina Courtin; and a highlight from the Dark Was the Night concert, which you can listen to in full by clicking here.
