I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Rufus' second CD. His first one was so amazing that I just had to have more. I was not disappointed! I am still amazed that I can't find anyone else who even knows who Rufus is. Is everyone living in caves or hiding under rocks? These songs should be playing everywhere, every day, initiating people into the wonders of this brilliant singer/songwriter. I feel as if I have found a spectacular gem and everyone around me thinks I only have a lump of coal. Once you hear this CD, you will wonder how you ever lived without knowing Rufus!

So I haven't heard the album yet, but I just saw him open for Tori Amos Saturday and I can't wait to get this cd in the mail. What a charming, talented, and beautiful man. Can't wait!

Like everybody else who knows how incredible Rufus Wainwright is, I've been waiting a long time for the follow-up to his debut CD. I'm not disappointed AT ALL. Poses is just as melodic, just as interesting, and just as deep as its predecessor. I particularly like his cover of ''One Man Guy.'' ''Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk'' and ''Greek Song'' are both awesome, too.

Discover Rufus now before he gets REALLY big!! Already a hit with the critics (his contributions to the Shrek and Moulin Rouge soundtracks were the only shining moments on both), I'm still hard pressed to find anyone who knows about this gem! His debut CD was amazing, and Poses is a perfect follow up. Agreed, it isn't as personal as his previous CD, but overall, his songwriting is a million times more confident. The only misstep is Evil Angel, which is an amazing melody, but botched up production. It should have been INTENSE, but now it's only powerful (This CD's amazing even in failure!)

Never heard him before Dec. 14th when he opened for Sting in Las Vegas. He's very talented! Definitely worth listening to.

He sings about strange love and partners, excesses and challenges. Personal experience is the basis for his work and therein lies the fear that his candle is burning at both ends. The work is brilliant, of course, and the vocal range amazing. Hang in there Rufus! You will be a STAR some day.

The first time you hear this album, you know it's good but it takes a couple more listens to absord all of it. The harmonies, melodies and production are so on target that sometimes I can't even listen to the whole album in one sitting. ''Shadows'' is one of my favorite, in which the chorus nearly reduces me to tears because of how perfect it is. ''Evil Angel'' is another, it's very orchestrated and beautiful. The whole album is entrancing and I find it hard to believe that any real music fan could hate it.

Poses sucks! And not because the music is bad. Poses sucks because it is another collection of brilliantly written and performed songs that will serve to torment me in my own song writing efforts. I heard a friend mention the name Rufus Wainwright and I bought it on a whim at Barnes and Noble. I haven't spent my money this well on music in quite a while. I've also just broken my rule to never give anything five stars! And like the lyric from the second track, ''Greek Song'', I too ''dream in Barnes and Noble''.

The music is so haunting and poignant, especially the title song. This artist strives for fibers of potent emotion that is missing in the vast majority of other artists' works.
