    He can be hard to listen to but at the same time is one of my favourites. I hear something new every time I listen to his songs.

    my favorite Tom Waits era and one of my favorite songs... he was on all cylinders and old enough to not ham it up so much... (not that i don't also enjoy his more cartoonish younger stuff (nighthawks at the diner, for instance))

    Every now and then, a songwriter comes up with a line that just knocks you flat with the genius of it. Tom Waits just keeps doing it, over and over. He is a true poet.
    (Ruby's Arms - "So Jesus Christ - this ******* rain" - it's like all the sadness and anger and frustration all comes boiling out at once, and he just can't bottle it up - magical.)
