Product Description

Product Description

Picking up where Want One left off, Rufus Wainwright's Want Two is a deeply introspective, sometimes kinky and often personally critical set of mini-operettas that ruminate on his various relationships, drug abuse, and image in the media. Metaphorically liturgical and often classical in sound, Want Two touches on such inner-related themes as love, loneliness, sin and sacrifice. It's more focused than Want One and as such packs more of wallop both musically and emotionally. Musically, Wainwright has never seemed more in command of his muse. References to Nilsson, Brian Wilson and Randy Newman are a matter of course, but Wainwright's growth as a pop craftsman with his own unique lyrical voice--both conceptually and literally--makes such comparisons unnecessary. To these ends, lush string orchestras, cheery choirs and piping horn sections decorate the impeccably scored album and perfectly complement Wainwright's swooning vocals. Taken as a whole, Want One and Want Two work well together as a sprawling and ambitious double album that is camp, serious and utterly compelling. This version also includes a bonus DVD, Rufus Wainwright Live at the Fillmore. --Matt Collar, All Music Guide

The standout cuts on this follow-up to Kathleen Edwards's highly praised debut, Failer, serve notice that the Canadian artist has no intention of remaining a cult favourite in the US. The opening "In State" evokes the anthem-like sweep of Tom Petty's "Refugee," complete with signature organ by the Heartbreakers' Benmont Tench, though its lyric of a prison-bound paramour smacks of déjà vu, Failure having opened with a similar narrative. The propulsive title track, with its irresistible double-entendre hook, deserves to be Edwards's breakthrough hit, while the yearning "Old Time Sake" and the buoyant yet bittersweet "Summerlong" expose a disarming tenderness underlying her tough-chick bravado. Over the course of the album, too much of the midtempo material sounds too much the same, more inspired lyrically than musically, failing to sustain the momentum of the opening tracks. The stripped-down intimacy of "Away" will likely rekindle comparisons to Lucinda Williams, but this artist sounds eager to outgrow those. --Don McLeese

Rufus Wainwright is quite clearly a genius.
Having heard intriguing snippets of the tracks 'Agnus Dei' and 'Little Sister' on 'Front Row' on Radio 4 a few weeks ago I finally got my act together and ordered this last weekend. It hasn't been off my CD player since (apart from when I've needed to play 'I am a Bird Now' by Antony & the Johnsons - another absolute must-buy).
This album demonstrates Rufus Wainwright's unique abilities as a song-writer and performer. Full of truly beautiful songs with arrangements which vary from simple, pared-down, voice and a piano to sweeping, Mozartian strings. Some up-beat, some low-key. Wainwright's voice is unusual - perhaps best described as languorous - but I absolutely love it and could listen to him sing for hours on end.
The DVD in this special edition is worth the money alone too. Mr W performing live at the Fillimore in San Fransisco. He's enchanting on stage and enchanting off it - there are some short clips interspersed through the DVD of him talking in the street (including a fabulously bizarre interlude where he happens across a bride sitting on the steps of a registry office talking on her mobile 'phone. He asks her if she's just got married and she tells him that she didn't because her husband-to-be turned up dressed as a giant rabbit. We then see said rabbit/husband...) Don't even consider buying the non-DVD version of 'Want Two' - the extra two or three quid is worth itself several times over.
All of this is perhaps why I bought 'Want One' on Saturday (from a shop - couldn't wait 24 hours for it to arrive from here - sorry Amazon), bought tickets to see him perform next month and am about to order his first and second albums here.
Everybody who cares about real music should own this album.

Not only an amazing CD album, but also a fabulously put-together DVD of his entire concert at the Fillmore (March 2004, I think) interspersed with cute little clips of Rufus wandering around SF commenting on the native wildlife.
Those fans who've been lucky enough to see Rufus Wainwright perform in concert - plus all those who caught his act at the Glastonbury & 02 Wireless festivals in June '05 -- already know how extraordinary he is as a live performer. Although that talent comes across on his CDs, the DVD shows just what a breathtaking performer he is. Extraordinary, in these days of manipulated studio sound, that the guy is completely for real and that incredible voice is just as pure and powerful when he's performing live. For my money, just watching Rufus perform 'Oh What a World' -- "Showbiz!" -- and 'The Art Teacher' is reason enough to justify the extra splash to get this special edition of Want Two. Wonderful, wonderful artist and this is a wonderful CD+DVD to celebrate his genius.
While I'm here... remember to buy his 'All I Want' dvd before it goes completely out of stock!

If you've not heard anything about or by Rufus Wainright, then you certainly haven't been on Planet Earth for the last few years.
Wainright writes and sings from the heart in a very disarming manner.
He also has a fantatsic sense of humour, mocking both himself and the world around him.
A combination of brutal honesty and fantastic lyrics and melodies makes Rufus Wainright impossible to ignore.

Rufus Wainwright has a gorgeous voice and I love a lot of his music- sometimes though he needs a bit of variation as it can "go on a bit" with the whining. Im glad I got this CD but play Out of the Game much more
