I used to love Rufus Wainwright, but the last album of his that I bought was Want II. I wasn’t so into the next album, and he just got a little bit too over the top.

My feelings about his music and about the character he puts forward are very complicated.
Nevertheless, congratulations to all involved, I guess.
