Rufus Wainwright delivers his most consistent and restrained lp since Poses but with stylistic echoes of all his work sprinkled throughout. Mark Ronson produces with a great ear for 70's soft-rock, 80's electro-pop and Wainwright's more complex usual sound. Seriously good pop music from an artist who deserves the wider audience this will hopefully bring.

I felt its consistency challenged upon 'Bitter tears,' 'Respectable dive' and 'Perfect man.' Those three very nearly ruined it completely for me. Did any particular song stand out for you, in a good or bad way?

I like all those, especially Bitter Tears which sounds like a Baroque Kraftwerk. Not sure I have a stand-out, but Jericho reminds me the most of the Release The Stars lp, my favourite up to now, but without the dense production, so that or Song of You. Montauk is great also, initially threatening to be an Art Teacher remake before becoming much more strange and interesting.
