Tom Waits is a freaking genius... this is one of the greatest albums ever made, nice noticeable influences from Jazz, Trout Mask Replica and Exile On Main Street. Two of my favorite records all over this album is just glorious, makes this album a new favorite in my god tier. 5/5
I remember when I first heard this album, shortly after it was released. A friend had it. I said something like, "What the hell is this?" It made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. I bought it soon after and kept playing it and playing it. At the time it was like nothing I'd ever heard before.
