Rufus Wainwright has been doing a lot of media recently for his new album - and I'm quite surprised at how happy he is to let it be known that he is DESPERATE for his new album to be a success. He's had years of critical acclaim but not much commercial success. Apparently his new album is completely accessible and commercial.
It's surprising how blatant he is about it all - and also surprising how badly the new album cover lets him down. It's pretty dire and you can't even read his name on the cover.
I don't think I'll buy it. He's okay, he can write some cracking tunes, but his voice can be a bit of a drone sometimes...
