Rufus Wainwright New CD: “Brilliant Failure”

Rufus Wainwright’s new CD, “Out of the Game,” comes out officially on May 1st. The video of the title track, starring Helena Bonham Carter, is above. This reviewer listens to the album and pronounces: “If the aim [Wainwright’s] collaboration with super-producer Mark Ronson is to bring mainstream popular success to one of contemporary music’s most exuberantly gifted eccentrics, ‘Out of the Game’ must be judged a brilliant failure.”
