We currently know 8 reviews for "Take All My Loves: 9 Shakespeare Sonnets" by Rufus Wainwright. People have mixed feelings about the record but in general seem to like it.
"All in all, a difficult task accomplished with no shortfall of style and invention."
The Independent (UK)
"Take All My Loves: 9 Shakespeare Sonnets reaffirms that the songwriter/composer is an arranger at home in many styles, with the ability to make this kind of sprawling, genre-surfing project unfold with elegance."
"This recording is a great addition to his musical catalogue, and a fine way to fall in love with Shakespeare all over again, to boot."
"It’s hard to imagine how someone whose last album was an opera could out-do themselves, but Rufus Wainwright has achieved just that with Take All My Loves: 9 Shakespeare Sonnets, to be released via Deutsche Gramophon on April 22, 400 years after William Shakespeare’s death."
Consequence of Sound
"If this is really where his heart now lies, it’s hard not to feel a tinge of sadness when you hear his honeyed vocals on A Woman’s Face, a reworking of a track from 2010 that recalls the swooning, symphonic pop of old."
The Observer (UK)
"Save for the playfully tempestuous “Th’Expense of Spirit in a Waste of Shame (Sonnet 129),” they’re serviceable and, like the spoken-word reprises by the likes of William Shatner and Siân Phillips, take few risks."
"Even during its more ludicrous moments, though, it’s impossible to deny the beauty that often shines through."
"Take All My Loves is an uneasy marriage of classical and pop, on which the sonnets are often overwhelmed by Wainwright’s extravagantly theatrical arrangements."
