  1. Demanding and artful, he just may be this generation's Joni Mitchell. [5 Dec 2004]
  2. Showcas[es] Rufus as one of, if not the best songwriters of his generation. [19 Mar 2005, p.59]
  3. 'Want Two' is simply in a league of its own.
  4. 90
    More, and even better, of the same--one of the dead-cert Albums Of The Year. [Album of the Month, Apr 2005, p.96]
  5. Another broadsheet rock critic waxing rhapsodic may be the last thing Wainwright needs, but here goes: Want Two is a stunning album.

    Good, but not great. The ugly step-sister of Want One, which was amazing, ostentatious, and honest, this album is simply pretentious. But still sometimes good. Full Review »

    Again, a very personnal album. Little Sister, The Art Teacher and Waiting For A Dream are amazing songs. He's voice is simply beautiful and he sounds like nobody else. Keep making those albums Rufus. Full Review »
