By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 24 Oct. 2011
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Waiting for the postman to arrive this morning I was almost salivating
(....and not for the reason you might expect. I'm not that kind of Wolf!)
The delivery of Tom Waits' new album 'Bad As Me' safely made I have spent
much of the day absorbed in its extraordinary and wonderful contents. For my
1000th review I wanted something very special to write about and this is it.

"Who Is Tom Waits?" For the most part he has always kept the "real" thing
closely under wraps. A family man, first and foremost but beneath the
spotlight and in the studio he subdivides into a whole cast of colourful
personae, each given flesh and blood through his inimitable voice and
uncanny ability to make his musical narratives burst into vivid life
between our ears. I have followed his recording career for thirty-five years
and the prospect of each new album arriving in the listening world still
fills me with anticipation and excitement every time.

Another question : "What Is Tom Waits?" is somewhat easier to answer. He
has always been and remains one of the most inherently great songwriters
and performers on the planet. This new release is no exception to the rule.

Although the musical language of 'Bad As Me' is familiar (like an old and
valued friend) this is a part of his indefatigable strength and longevity.
Continuity and consistency are the keys to his magic kingdom

The thirteen principal songs on the album (there are another three on the
"deluxe" edition) fall alongside the rest of his back-catalogue comfortably.
Mr Waits is not out to test us here; this collection delivers the essence of
all we have come to know and love about his writing.

i'll start off this (most likely unpopular) review by saying i'm a massive tom waits fan. to put the review in context, my favourite era is the mid-80s trilogy, which i hold up as a high water mark for music in the 80s. i also love his blues albums of the late 70s, the one from the heart album of 1982, and the heart of saturday night. i'm not a huge fan of his later albums (eg since 1987's frank's wild years) with the exceptions of the black rider and alice. i feel his work has faded into regurgitating his favourite themes in ever so slightly different ways, and his work is subject ot the law of diminishing returns. what seemed fresh and vibrant when he first did it seems less so, when you recognise the riff, when you recognise the lyric, when you recognise the format. it's the moment when you notice the card the magician has got hidden up his sleeve.

i would also say that i came to tom waits quite late (probably about a decade ago, and so listened to it in a fairly unordered sequence. therefore, bone machine was about the fourth album i listened to, etc, so i wasn't burned out by then - i just recognised the better writing and invention in the earlier stuff, and the stagnation in the later stuff. i also find he delivers his lyrics better in the older albums. his real strength for me over the years has been his simply wonderful lyrics, and powerful delivery. he has kept the beautiful voice, and in some ways that has got better. eg in the black rider and alice, that voice is so rich and powerful, there really is little in music to compare with it. it's an instrument as much as a voice, and he inhabits his different characters to wonderful effect. that voice is the reason i will always buy his albums. there's no fix like it.

Having lost none of his capacity to surprise, Tom Waits' latest progression takes him at least one step backwards towards some of his earlier incarnations, whilst still rooted firmly in the present. The result is possibly his most widely accessible album for decades.

Waits' wilder, experimental, journeys to the edge have been curbed a little this time, much of his trademark cacophony of recent years eschewed in favour of more conventionally structured songs. But it's all unmistakeably Waits, from the opening frantic shuffle of "Chicago" to the closing "New Year's Eve" - a 21st century Fairytale of New York, with which it's bound to be compared. (Unless, of course, you've invested in the Deluxe version, in which case you get three fine additional examples of the master's art for your extra money.)

"Raised Right Men" is a delightfully funky romp incorporating a suitably crazed vocal, the lilting "Talking At The Same Time", all slack-key guitar, tinkling piano and distant brass section is an unmitigated joy, whilst "Kiss Me" represents the unexpected return of Waits' seventies bar-room crooner.

The delicious rockabilly romp of "Get Lost" complete with retro guitar solo, and the Stones-inspired "Satisfied" (featuring Keith Richards and namechecking both The Glimmer Twins), keep the momentum going nicely whilst the military stomp of "Hell Broke Luce" is another highlight, Waits' latest anti-war diatribe. Clearly, if God's been away on business He just extended His trip.

And there are tender moments aplenty, "Face To The Highway" the best of these, a song of regret and painful departure evoking the spirit (if not the arrangement) of "Ruby's Arms".

Whilst fans will doubtless be delighted, paradoxically this could also be the Tom Waits album for people who don't like Tom Waits. Go figure.
