Okay well so far this is the last album Waits has released. A whole ten, no eleven years ago! Surely it must be time for something new? For now though, this is all we got and it completes the current...

We near the end of what he himself might call an "inebriated stroll through the metropolitan area" of Waits's work (though I swear I haven't touch a drop since about 1987!) with only two albums to...

A mere two years later, Waits had his next album out, one that would, for the first time really in his career, contain songs that had a political message. Mostly a man who tended to shy from either...

ADDITIONAL: THE WORD ACCORDING TO WAITS

Not an album, this is taking a slight detour away from the discography to look at the lyrics of this artist we called Tom Waits. The man is a genius, and...

Music from yet another play, Alice is a slightly longer album than its co-released mate, Blood Money, but from what...

Some artists would think it an achievement to release two albums in the same year. Devin Townsend of course releases about ten every week, but Waits went one better than most here, having both this...

Over a nine-year period the one shining beacon in what became a shroud of darkness and hard times for me with Waits's music was the album he released in 1999, which returned somewhat to his previous...

I guess it’s no longer possible to avoid this. 1993 began a trio of albums that made me really strain to keep liking Waits. I’m not alone: many people consider this his weakest period. Perhaps the...

If I'm doing double entries on all other discographies to make up for being away from them for so long, it only makes sense that I do the same here. However, as we're now tackling two sort of...

The other album released by Waits in 1992 would be his second movie soundtrack, though this one would be mostly instrumental. Having worked with director Jim Jarmusch on Down by Law, Waits hooked up...

One of the longest hiatuses in Waits's career, five years would elapse between his last album and his next, but he would make up for that by producing two albums in 1992, one of which was a studio...

Would anyone else title an album after a track from a previous one, and not include that track, or any reference back to it? Well, probably not. But then, this is just another example of Waits not so...

Having branched out on the previous album Waits continued to explore the limits of his music, almost inventing instruments and shunning the popular digital electronic recording process. As he said...

”Probably see someone you know on Heartattack and Vine" croaks Waits in the title track, and perhaps you can. Maybe they're one of those ”Pedal pushers suckin' on a soda pop" or the woman being left...

Okay, well his voice is certainly an acquired taste (I think in one review I compared it to chewing gravel for breakfast?) but after the mid-1980s he adopted a much different tone, basically copying...

It's not the greatest, and a poor follow-up to Small Change, but it has its moments. I like "Potter's Field" a lot (even though it's not his music) and "Barber Shop" always makes me grin. The...

This then takes us to 1977 and his fifth studio album, where everything changed as Waits assumed a film-noir aspect for the album, and invited the great Bette Midler to contribute. It's not, to be...
