i absolutely love+adore me some Rufus -i mean, at least when the mood strikes me ;)- ...and! i totally used to listen to him quite a bit more than lately/a few years ago (a.k.a. before the mostly-boring 'Release the Stars' and the overrated+really-fuckin'-indulgent [even for RW] Judy Garland bullshit)...anddd he's also just spectacular+SUPER-entertaining live, btw!).
- this def. left me wanting a little 'more' and that basically just SOMEthing seemed to missing (especially since it's *seemingly* a-match-made-in-orchestral-pop-heaven: Brian fuckin' Wilson+Rufus fuckin' Wainwright...). Ughh- idk >.<. *NOT bad by any means, but not that great though either...* (however, i AM still totally looking forward to hearing the opera he's been working on for awhile- 'Prima Donna'...)
