    Older Than My Old Man Now contains some excellent work when Wainwright's not putting on false bravado or bullshitting, but ultimately, this is for his hardcore fans rather than casual ones.

    Despite moments of brilliance, at 15 songs long the self-obsession sometimes grates. [May 2012, p.108]

    Best of all is "The Day That We Die", Rufus Wainwright oozing mournfully with his dad about the way that familial potholes prove so difficult to repair.

    A beautiful, wonderful, funny/heart-wrenching, thought-provoking record from Mr. Wainwright III as he looks back on what is, what was and whatA beautiful, wonderful, funny/heart-wrenching, thought-provoking record from Mr. Wainwright III as he looks back on what is, what was and what could have been. Stirring, emotional ballads ('In C') mix with humorous ditties ('My Meds') in a joyful/painful looking back/forward at life. With the exceptions of 'Date Line' and 'I Remember Sex', one of Loudon's best records ever, IMO. The other 13 tunes rate a '10.' Full Review »
