Can't say enought good things about Bone Machine. Incredibly evocative and poetic, it's one of Tom Waits' most cohesive albums. So impressive, both lyrically and musically. The tone is dark and morbid (just take a gander at the song titles) but it covers very universal themes. There is a lot of severe, industrial-sounding stuff like Earth Died Screaming, Such a Scream, and In the Colosseum, but also very melodic, country-ish tunes like A Little Rain and Whistle Down the Wind. Overall this is fascinating, primal, earthy, challenging music. Bone Machine is a shining example of why Tom Waits is often regarded as one of music's finest.

This is perhaps my favorite album ever, by anyone. Some say it's less accessible than other Tom Waits, but I'm not so sure. Coming from the background of an alt-rock fan, I was more immediately attracted to stuff like this than to Waits' early work. There are a number of raucous percussion-driven tracks here, but also a few moving ballads. Some people will like the ballads if not for the vocals, but I think Waits' delivery keeps them from being overly sentimental. I'm not sure if I can put together all of the lyrics, but there are a lot of great lines. The last verse of A Little Rain kills me ("She was 15 years old...").
