5.0 out of 5 stars A man on top of his game, 4 Nov 2009
This review is from: Glitter and Doom Live (Audio CD)
I saw the show in Dublin and it was the most spellbinding thing I have ever seen. His stage persona is massive that of an opera singer but his vocal range is far greater than most people think and this album demonstrates the fact. The backing band were excellent and it sounded like "electric sugar" at times. The first 8 tracks were made available free on line but the album contains many other gems and a bonus disc of Tom's tales (much of his between song banter during the tour). It does have some dark moments, however, I think there is more glitter than doom overall here. It contains some suprisingly uplifting moments with different and perhaps more coherent arrangements to some of the original songs and demonstrates how his older music still has relevance today when re-worked lovingly. Stand out vocal performances from Mr Waits throughout but never better than on Lucky Day.

Thank you for your review.I have listened to some of the live versions of those live songs on YouTube and they are outstanding to say the least and so much so that after reading your post I was totally hooked and purchased the album right away.As a Tom Waits fan I could not be without this gem of an album since I have collected them all...I have been a fan since the 80's when I first heard "raindogs" which I played constantly and has never looked back since and will carry on being fascinated by the incredible unique talent Tom Waits really is..There is no one like him ..Thank you once again for your input.
