Review

“The cabaret pop songs on Rufus Wainwrightþs 1998 solo debut were accomplished enough to make it clear that this semi-celebrity son of Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle wasnþt just getting by on his name and some string-arrangement help from Van Dyke Parks. Wainwrightþs new Poses, however, makes his critically acclaimed debut seem like the musical ramblings of a precocious high school kid. Poses is unusually varied, from the Prince-on-a-weirder-day atonality of "Evil Angel" to the tear-jerking keyboard/voice bookends of "Cigarettes And Chocolate Milk" and "In A Graveyard," simply arranged (but lyrically complex) songs where Wainwrightþs arguable genius comes through most clearly. Some of the more dense, jazzy vocal harmonies (handled by Rufus and his sister Martha) recall a shiny þ70s esthetic many would rather forget. Yet those moments are eclipsed by highlights like the cover of Loudonþs loner narcissistþs anthem "One Man Guy" ("These three cubic feet of bone and blood and meat are all I love and know... Sure itþs kinda lonely/ Yeah itþs sorta sick/ Being your own one and only is a dirty selfish trick"), and "Greek Song," which brilliantly disguises its two-chord structure with Asian strings and a theatricality of expression only a self-professed, lifelong ham could pull off successfully.” (CMJ)
