Rufus Wainwright
Want Two
(Dreamworks)
Want Two is a direct continuation of Want One’s explorations of friendship, decadence and sexual identity, with even more classical musical references than before. Might be a too heavy on the cream for some, but a version of the disc contains an essential DVD of Wainwright live at the Fillmore, a spectacular concert where he pulls tunes from every album, including his campy ode to cell phone abuse (“Vibrate”), “Foolish Love” and perhaps the definitive version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.
—Dave Hayden
