Reserve your Sopranos comments for the post below, if you spoilers in this thread.

Rufus Wainright - Release the Stars

I've just given it one listen so far, but it's a beautiful set of songs - astonishing combination of singer-songwriter ethos with powerful and unique orchestrations. You don't remember just how predictable most music these days really is until you hear something that truly surprises, both within a song and from track to track. The album bogs down a little in the middle, but overall very strong, better than his last. We'll see how it holds up to listening again.

Iain Pears - The Portrait
Last week, I read this short novel, picked for no particular reason. Eh.
