Want One or Want Not?,
This review is from: Want One (Audio CD)
Well, he burst on to the music scene with th re-release of leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah', apologies if my spelling is not accurate.It is quite strange that such a respected artist had to use a re-release to gain some credit and celebrity, this says alot about his somewhat 'over-rated' song writing capabilities. Yes, this album does contain some good, catchy tunes however,after listening to the CD for a while it seems as though all the songs merge into one! It is apparent that Rufus's writing capabilities are very limited and his songs are very similar and repetitive. His popularity is a result of people jumping on the bandwagon and not actually down to his own achievements. Just because he is different does not mean we should like him. Yes, he is a refreshing change from the trashy pop tunes of today but even they have variety. The moral of the story is.....love Busted, they are the real music heroes.

Oh, I see - we, who like Rufus Wainwright, are jumping on a bandwagon. Hmm, interesting comment.; so I had to check up on who Busted were. I went to Wikipaedia because I couldn't remember them - similar acts listed included McFly! Nuff said.
I agree with the three guys' comments.
One last thing - his first album came out in 1998, his release of Cohen's "Hallelujah" was first released in 2001 and the re-release came in 2007. By then, four albums had been released and his fifth came out the same year. He was a star by then, so you got your facts wrong, mate.
