The scrutiny of success that came early on--being named Best New Artist by Rolling Stone in 1998, the year of his debut album, for example--would have smothered many another emerging talent. But it failed to stopper the singular, unclassifiable, ranging gift of singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright. His sophomore album, Poses, advances beyond the earlier, cabaret-inspired effort with a suite of songs marvelously varied in arrangement and texture but linked by Wainwright's characteristic theatrical panache. "Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk" catalogs excess with playful self-censure, but Wainwright's whimsical ironies often take a bruising, poignant turn, whether in the pseudo-upbeat "California" or, most movingly, on the title track. The dying fall of Wainwright's lusher melodies--echoes of "Across the Universe" as well as ultrachic Beatles tunes such as "Michelle"--meshes remarkably with the poetic substance here as he explores a landscape of wistful self-knowledge caught between longing and decadence. Yet even through all the layers of picturesque, postmod observation, Wainwright conveys a sense-filtered experience that gives urgency to his hauntingly mumbled opacities. With Poses, the young artist proves his authenticity. --Thomas May
"Poses" is my favorite of Rufus' albums. Mostly because a lot of my favorite songs by him are on it ("One Man Guy", "Poses", "Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk"). Read morePublished on Jan. 14 2009 by vamosrafa07
POSES is a brilliant album by one of the most talented singers and songwriters ever.
It is a must have for any serious collector of fine music.
And, Rufus is Canadian.
There's not much more to say about this album that hasn't been said already. It's fabulous. It's brillantly written and performed. I listen to it in the car, at work, at home. Read morePublished on July 19 2004

I have to say I'm puzzled a bit by Rufus Wainwright. I don't think there's any question that his songs are refreshingly honest and different enough to be quite charming. Read morePublished on June 27 2004 by Craig Burgess
I think Rufus Wainwright is a type that kind of sounds like Bob Dylan.
What I heard is that he is from Canada and he is a kind of folk rock singer. Read more
