Feeling the itch to dance with as many partners as he can
2011 | Label: Anti/Epitaph

Arriving seven years after Real Gone, Bad As Me busts out of the gate with the churning horns of “Chicago.” But with the lagging tabla beat of the next track, “Raised Right Men,” Waits steps on the brakes, and he more or less keeps his foot down for the rest of the album. The word “relaxed” is nowhere in Waits’s lexicon, but there’s an unhurried ease to songs like “Talking at the Same Time” and… read more »

The blood on the floor, the thunder and the roar

A tight album from the ramblin loose cannon, Uncle Tom O' Bedlam. With the exception of spoken word, he hits all his songwriting strengths... like getting your heart pumping with Bad As Me then breaking it on Back In The Crowd. And if you are deliberating whether to get the Deluxe Edition, it's absolutely worth it for the three bonus gems.

Bad as Me (Deluxe Edition)

the_one_and_only

I've only ever cried over not getting tickets to see two live shows: Guns N' Roses/Metallica (in 7th grade) and Tom Waits (as a full-grown woman). This is his best album in YEARS. It's a story, it's a ride, its back to the basics... it's a masterpiece. And I agree, the bonus tracks are VERY MUCH worth it.'

You definitely want the deluxe edition. The three bonus tracks include two of the best songs recorded for this album.

36 Songs To Soothe the Pain

By Wondering Sound Staff, Contributor

Whether you're happily married or told Cupid to shove it a long time ago, we can all agree on one thing: to quote the one-and-only Nazareth, "Love hurts/ Love scars/ Love wounds/ And mars." Or something. That's why we went ahead and compiled a list of 36 Songs To Soothe the Pain, from the bloodletting confessionals of Neko Case, Bright Eyes and Sunny Day Real Estate to the melancholic melodies of Sigur Rós, the Shangri-Las… more »

Icon: Tom Waits

By Sam Adams, Contributor

Tom Waits's career can be easily split into halves: the barfly crooner and the guttural prophet of doom. The albums from Swordfishtrombones on - built around clattering rhythms and that unmistakable growl - have largely overshadowed the career that came before, but Waits's first seven albums, all recorded for Island Records, make up a formidable, if less challenging, body of work. It's a long way from the screwball Bette Midler duet of "I Never Talk… more »
