Tom does it again!!,
This review is from: Real Gone (Audio CD)
I have been waiting (ha ha) for ages for a new album from the god of gothic blues and i am happy to say that this ranks up as one of his best.
For the first time in his 30 year career he has shunned the piano for more typical rock instruments, but has come up with something never heard before...
From that sexual Latin flavour that pours out of Hoist that rag, to the Primal blues of Make it rain, or the cubist funk of metropolitan glide Tom once again shows that he wont be shackled by the chains of conformity. how he keeps coming up with new ideas and sounds beggars belief, he even does a bit of human beatboxing!! also his son Casey is featured on the album playing drums and manning the turntables whilst 'Dad' mans the microphone. This is a must have for fans and newcomers alike...
There is only one problem, once you have it, you'll cry out for a new album straight away because once the surreal magic of Mr Waits has gripped you you can't shake it no matter how hard you try.
I cant wait for another album, and i wish he'd play live over here more often, but hey, a genius needs time off.
Now Tom, how about releasing 'Big Time' on DVD?
