I don't have enough Waits to be able to say yes. Rain Dogs is a great album, never heard anything I disliked (except the debut maybe), just never fully clicked. Same with Nick Cave. Everything these guys put out is assumed to have so much gravitas and intellectual weight to it the whole thing just scares me away. Although Waits maybe has more of a sense of humour about himself

Closing Time is one of the better debut albums I've heard. It is stylistically different from his later albums, including those just three or four years later. But I wouldn't consider it a poor album; he exposes an emotional side which he never fully returned to in later years.

If you want to get a full measure of the man listen to his albums born during transitional periods-- Blue Valentine, Swordfishtrombones, Bone Machine, etc.

Good recommendations. I'm not as big a fan of Swordfishtrombones as lot of people but it doesn't sound like any of his other albums and it's probably his most transitional album so it certainly worth a listen for people new to his music.
