FILTER Grade: 88%

Rufus Wainwright

After a three-year absence, the man who Elton John called “the world’s best songwriter” is back. All Days Are Nights: Songs for Lulu is Wainwright’s most personal album since Poses. He makes pain sound beautiful, whether he’s paying tribute to New York City, pleading to his sister on “Martha,” singing about a high school crush or lamenting his mother’s final days on “Zebulon.” Although he has been missed, his fans will agree that this album is well worth the wait.
