Rufus Wainwright

Damned Ladies

Composed by Rufus Wainwright

Song Review by

Like "Barcelona," "Damned Ladies" is a slow, downcast ballad statement and also emerges the listener in a wholly erotic world. Rufus Wainwright's descriptions of emotional moods and changes are truly enticing here and coupled with the intoxicating, slightly Spanish melody creates one of the album's most narcotic moments. Wainwright's vocals only underline the point here, and added to this is Jon Brion's fabulous arrangement, creating one of the more definitive mood pieces on the album.
