What seems to make this album so successful, oddly enough, is its surprising balance - certainly an odd thing to say about any Tom Waits album. However, this album contains everything. It has its ballads (Time, Hang Down Your Head) - in fact, "Time" may be the best ballad he's written (quite a statement). On top of that, it has his more abrasive (yet fascinating) music, such as "Singapore" and "Anywhere I Lay My Head"; it even has a grandious, borderline pop tune "Downtown Train."

Waits' voice is...well...unique as always. However, it also seems to be at its strongest. As we hear in later albums he's definitely aged and it took its toll on his voice. However, here he's able to milk it for everything it's worth, and he does that - Hang Down Your Head hits with incredible impact.

Finally, the musicians playing with Waits are amazing. The guitar solos on Clap Hands and Downtown Train are absolutely incredible, and the whole ensemble is as tight as you could ever hope.

I'm probably not saying anything here that other Waits fans haven't already said. But the point remains: if eclectic, occasionally insane music is your cup of tea, this is the Earl Gray of your music.


Tom Waits - Downtown Train

Tom waits' voice is an embodiment of him. Unlike many singers today who have pro tools be their voice. Its distinct and raw gravelly yet melodically powerful.

Tom Waits - Time (Live)

The best performance of the best song ever written. Tom's hymn for what it means to be human
