4.0 out of 5 stars Want More?, 11 April 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Want Two (Audio CD)
It was difficult to see how Wainwright could come anywhere near the perfection of the previous Want One, and at first listening I found it a little disappointing. The arrangements are a little less majestic in their orchestration, and the album as a whole appears to have a little less cohesion.
However after 5 or so listens the layers start to peel back, and you start to notice things that you missed earlier on. The tunes start to get inside your head, and suddenly the sheer brilliance of the man hits you again.
And what tunes. From the fantastically atmospheric opening track through to the bonus French tracks at the end there are more ideas in this album than most achieve in a whole lifetime. As always, jam packed with melody and poignancy, with a nod and a wink to the more bizarre side of life.
And did I mention the bonus DVD live concert that comes with it?
You can hardly claim to have been shortchanged by a composer who currently has no equal for those who like intelligent music performed on a grand scale.
