PLEADING THE 'FIFTH' Wainwright strikes ''Poses'' on his newest

Details Lead Performance: Rufus Wainwright; Genres: Folk, Rock

''I did go from wanting to be someone/ Now I'm drunk and wearing flip-flops on Fifth Avenue,'' Wainwright croons on the semiautobiographical title track of his latest, Poses. Unlike the narrator, the songwriter has fulfilled his debut's potential. With Broadway worthy new standards and a strong supporting cast (Sarah McLachlan producer Pierre Marchand, Propellorheads' Alex Gifford, former Hole bassist Melissa Auf Der Maur), Wainwright delivers a flawless, flip-flopless performance.
