Wainwright's striking debut from 1998 is steeped in the sounds of cabaret and big Tin Pan Alley numbers. It also has a rare tunefulness and intimacy; it's like Randy Newman by way of Edith Piaf. It's only natural that Van Dyke Parks was brought in for the chamber-like arrangements. "Barcelona" and "April Fools" are two of the album's many highlights.
