Reseña de álbum

All Days Are Nights: Songs for Lulu finds singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright stripping back the operatic flourishes of his 2007 album Release the Stars to deliver a stark and deeply personal collection of songs. Where Stars often featured large backing ensemble arrangements, here Wainwright simply accompanies himself on piano, allowing the lyrics of these poetic, introspective songs and his voice to take the spotlight. Never one to shirk away from cerebral and conceptual artistic endeavors, Wainwright has adapted three Shakespeare sonnets here that work quite well as ruminative, classically impressionistic-style pieces. Elsewhere, tracks like "Who Are You New York" and "Sad with What I Have" feature Wainwright's longstanding knack for clever and ironic turns of phrase. Obviously, the memory of Wainwright's mother, Kate McGarrigle, who died in 2010 after an extended illness, hangs heavy throughout the album. It is clear that Wainwright wrote and recorded much of All Days Are Nights during her illness, and themes of loss, depression, and sadness permeate these songs. Wainwright addresses this directly in "Martha," a yearning plea to his sister, singer/songwriter Martha Wainwright, to whom he also dedicates the album. Wainwright sings, "Martha it's your brother calling. Time to go up north and see mother. Things are harder for her now and neither of us is really that much older than each other anymore." The song, as with most of of All Days Are Nights, is a bold, absolutely emotionally naked statement that still retains Wainwright's devastating talent for artful, universally compelling songcraft.

Pretty Piano can't save Rufus from himself

I loved almost everything Rufus has put out with an exception of his Judy Garland tribute. His talent need not be mentioned. He's a genius, but in the case of this album he's stuck in his own little world of theatrical sadness. I'm sorry for the loss his of his mother, but his 40 minutes of whining over it does not a good album make. The piano is often quite beautiful, though not enough to overcome Wainwright's wallowing in his sorrows. I find this album quite painful. I just wanted to scream, "Get over yourself Rufus." Life is tough and full of sadness so why should we have to wallow along with him. Entertain please, don't bring us down with your overly theatrical, dramatic meanderings. I still stand by his other works though. Only recommended for mega fans who'd like to drown in Rufus' sorrows too.

A-MAZING

This is his greatest achievement yet. Haunting melodies, enticing lyrics, an all around masterpiece that will one day sit atop the greatest piano driven ballad collections of all time.

New Rufus!

Deep and moving. He never fails to surprise nor challenge me.
