Amazing as Usual!!!
I am a big tom waits fan. I have almost every album he has released, but he always manages to create something fresh and different each go-around. This album is no different. It retains a distinct tom waits sound that is in all of his music, but takes a different form than anything he has ever done. His beat boxing is actually quite a cool addition to the mix and turntables make a few tracks pretty cool. One thing that strikes me about this album is that it is pretty long, especially track number 2 which is 10:39 or something like that. Another thing is that tom waits usually sings his songs in a certain sing-a-long manor. No he doesnt sound like barney, he just usually sings in a fashion that is easy to sing along to and immitate. In the case of this album his lyrics are the hardest to understand and hardest to sing a long to. Not that everyone wants to sing a long, but he just sings in a asymmetrical way. Another thing worth noting is that there is a 16th track on the album that is short but exciting. I would highly reccomend this titleWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
