Bless you, Rufus Wainwright.

Rufus Wainwright: Want OneI'm totally hooked on Rufus Wainwright's new album, Want One, which doesn't sound like any pop album I've heard before. Call me a sucker for operatic rock: "Go or Go Ahead" sounds like a Radiohead song scored by Maurice Ravel (whose "Bolero" theme is woven through "Oh What a World"). AMG says it isn't even his best work. I had never heard of him until Mrs Philocrites came home with the CD two weeks ago, and ever since then we've both been humming along madly. Consider it recommended.
