So called "serious" bands tend to shy away from theatricality. By toning down our human existence (and by proxy their orchestration) to the bare minimums, they hope to capture some spartan truth or unvarnished nugget of visceral human emotion. Well, some of us still love grand theatrics and a pageantry to our music and Rufus Wainwright is hear to save us from the dreary gloom and angst of so many modern musicians with a new single, "Out of the Game," as well as an announcement of a new LP of the same name for 5/1. Wainwright's tenor is as gorgeous as ever and the delicious playfulness here reminds us that music can dare to be big and still have something important to say.
