The One and Only Rufus Wainwright Discussion Thread

Heres the thing - this mans a genius any way you cut it. His is the only 'out there' male performer that I am fond of, and despite his unusual voice I have to say the entire album "Poses" is a definitive masterpiece. He is beyond good on that one.

Any fans of his here? He recently played - two days ago actually - the Judy Garland Show redone song for song. Apparently it was a massive success. Not normally a fan of this genre of music but may want to give it a try when it releases on DVD.

I would highly recommend "Poses" as well his 2007 album "Release the Stars" - very lush and operatic music - solid, great stuff.

I like him, & his sister ain't bad either. Your recommended titles are the only ones I have.

IMO, Release the Stars is by far his weakest album to date. Even Want One and Want Two were better albums.

...that said, though, his music is still better than a lot of what you find on commercial radio.
