Review this album
elizagMay 17, 2007big fan of the first four cds; he laid an egg with this one. 2 stars for a few moments with potential--going to a town has a decent hook, but is too strident, sanssouci is melodic but trite, tulsa has some amusing cheekiness to it. been a fan since poses, hoping rufus can finally produce a breakout album and get the widespread acclaim he deserves. this is not that album, tho--too bad.
ChristopherDMay 19, 2007Oh Rufus, what became of you? Remember when song craft trumped bombast? When the lyrics actually mattered? What a horribly disappointing mess from such a talented man.
JimPMay 25, 2007I'm a big fan of Rufus' work to this point, but I just can't get into this album. Way too heavily produced. As for songcraft, these would have been on the cutting room floor if they were laid down during the Want or Poses sessions.
