Bad As Me is Tom Waits’ first studio album of all new music in seven years. This pivotal work refines the music that has come before and signals a new direction. Waits, in possibly the finest voice of his career, worked with a veteran team of gifted musicians and longtime co-writer/producer Kathleen Brennan. From the opening horn-fueled chug of “Chicago,” to the closing barroom chorale of “New Year’s Eve,” Bad As Me displays the full career range of Waits’ songwriting, from beautiful ballads like “Last Leaf,” to the avant cinematic soundscape of “Hell Broke Luce,” a battlefront dispatch. On tracks like “Talking at the Same Time,” Waits shows off a supple falsetto, while on blues burners like “Raised Right Men” and the gospel tinged “Satisfied” he spits, stutters and howls. Like a good boxer, these songs are lean and mean, with strong hooks and tight running times. A pervasive sense of players delighting in each other’s musical company brings a feeling of loose joy even to the album’s saddest songs.

Bad As Me available October 25th.

how'd it sound, man?



if you had to compare it to two of his other albums making love while another one of his albums jacks-off in the corner and watches, what would they be (in terms of sound/songs/atmosphere/etc...)?

I got it today. On amazon, if you buy the bonus tracks separately you save a few bucks.

Totally great. I played Hell Broke Luce in the car ride to work and it pissed off one of my co-workers.

Here's a few notes.

1. Brother man has never been in a war.
2. You can't call the song asinine without knowing what Tom Waits has done.
3. When you get into the rock 'n' roll hall of fame, I'll start giving a fuck what you think, Brother Man.

Almost ruined my day.....copacetic is the name of the game, these days

After a few spins, I give it a thumbs up. I don't really care for Back in the Crowd. Get Lost/Chicago/Hell Broke Luce = Awesome. After You Die sounds like it would be fun to play.

I had that same lukewarm response at first, but knowing the tendency for Tom Waits' records to grow on me, I knew I should ignore my feelings of "this is just another pretty good Waits album with no surprises or standouts," and continued to give it a few more spins. Now I'm thinking that Bad As Me ranks up there among my favorite TW albums. Bone Machine is still king of the mountain for me, but this one's not too too far behind, actually. Lots of good stuff going on here!
