I think Tom Waits is always an interesting artist but I much prefer the way he sounded and performed in the mid 1970s. By this stage his voice is shot to pieces and, in my opinion, unpleasant to listen to. I also prefer the jazz band back on albums like Nighthawks At The Diner.
I recognise that artists have to progress to sustain a career but I got off the Tom Waits bus a long time ago and whenever I’ve tried to hop on since for a short journey, I’ve been relieved when it ended.
