It was definitely one of the biggest revelations of the "LAL to the Waits albums" exercise for me.

Me too.

It might be the greatest gift Stip's ever given me.


Well .... that and a pair of testicles...

I had a great LAL via Vinyl on Swordfish tonight...

That album just ends without any bang whatsoever. I really feel you have to listen to the trilogy to get any sense of satisfaction with this one. I fucking love a handful of tracks but overall it just wont do it for me.

You and I are on a roll tonight, friend, because it's easily my favorite of "the trilogy." :peace:

This is like a real relationship! Ups and downs!

Why is this your favorite....?

I just love the collection of songs, mostly. For me, there just isn't a bummer in the bunch. It's concise. It's lyrical. It has fantastic range. It flows really well. FWY is a bit messy, and Rain Dogs isn't messy enough. There isn't a single song that I skip On Swordfish, and I can't pick a favorite. Every time a song starts I think, This one is my favorite! But then the next song comes on and I think, No, THIS one is my favorite.

Really, just the way he sings "leaned it up against a dandelion tree" makes it the best one of the three.

:heartbeat:

It's already become my second favorite album of all time and it's pushing hard at the #1 spot. Another year or so and I think it'll take it.

the track was available for listening about three weeks ago (maybe it was just for a couple of days though).
because i wasn't familiar with Shenandoah, i was hoping this was some kind of aye-aye drunken pirates sea-chantey kind of thing that one could easily expect from a Waits/Richards collaboration so i was disappointed :|

I played it at work. One of my co-workers (a huge Waits fan) loved it. Another co-worker (someone who doesn't know Waits at all) laughed out loud. He thought it was a joke. The other co-worker and I just couldn't explain it to him.

Listening to Orphans again.

Dog Door has a sick groove.

Bottom Of The World is even better than I remember. I remembered it being pretty fucking great.

Be honest. How do you feel about Tori Amos's cover of Time?

Is 'That Feel' the best Tom Waits album closer?

Maybe if it wasn't a fade out?

Nah, even with the fade out it's still #2 or 3.

Come On Up To The House is the best.

Mule Variations is probably my #3 or #4 Tom Waits album. Bone Machine is my #1.

Bone Machine is like drinking a Guinness for me. Not something I want to do every day, but rewarding and satisfying from time to time.

I would say my current favorite is Real Gone. I love the demented delta blues thing he has going on and lyrically its pretty special.

Yeah. It's not an easy album, but I think it's easily one of the top 5 best albums ever recorded by any artist.

I tend to listen to Blood Money and Mule Variations more often, though. Because they're also great and easier to listen to more often.

Bone Machine and Blood Money are easily my #1 and #2. Stuff after that fluctuates.
