Bone Machine is one of my favourite Tom Waits. Beneath the dark and often funny surreal expressionsism there lies a warm and tender understanding of the human condition. Three songs from this album that I especially like are Who are You, Little Rain and That Feel. Tom is able to combine words and music in a unique way that captures so much of the contradictions in the human spirit. In other words, his music, which can on a surface level appear sometimes a little bleak and chilly, is in effect a wonderful celebration of being alive.
