Tom Waits – Bad As Me (Anti)

mp3: Tom Waits – New Year’s Eve

It’s been said that this is like a Tom Waits greatest hits compilation made up of new songs. And apparently this is a criticism. Bollocks. The last few Waits albums have been clanky and innovative and anything but an ageing performer resting on his laurels, so why not have an album that has all the Toms on it – the junkyard poet, the drunk tank philosopher, the oblique social commentator, the hopeless romantic. Criticising this album for being too Tom Waits would only make sense if the songs were in some way under par, and they’re obviously not. This is ace, fuck the haters.
