Tom Waits | Swordfishtrombones
Witnessing the progression of the Tom Waits sound is like having a semi-religous, peak experience. And Swordfishtrombone makes the most sense in context with his past albums. Gone are the images of happy hobos and beat poets and in saunters a freak show of cigar chomping, circus clowns and poodle murdering, ex-husbands. The sound is like a merry go round warped by the doppler effect with clanking bottles, twisted tunings and smashed vibes. And of course over all of that is a darker, more mature and forlorn Waits growling about those things that haunt us when we peak. - Jay F. (OG)
