This was an awesome album. A bunch of filler as well, but scattered well enough that it doesn't drag the album down.
Favorites: Big Black Mariah, Union Square
Anywhere I Lay My Head
Jockey Full Of Bourbon
Hang Down Your Head
A timeless triumph in the musical world as a whole, standing as an incredibly poetic, creative and original collection of songs that each possess their own ability to grasp you in a wave of different emotions. When you feel it, you really feel it.
In 1985, Tom Waits released "Rain Dogs". The album is unclassifiable: it is both jazzy and rock. This album offers us 19 short titles assembled strangely. I'm a big fan of Tom Waits: his music is weird but really interesting. His voice is extremely special and creates a reel universe around his music. This album is a real musical experience to live at least once in this life. The guitarist Keith Richards is present on some songs of the album. "Rain Dogs" is one of my favorite albums of the 80s, it is really excellent and creative.

His voice is very special and unique, but do not (yet) get the special vibe of this album...
Probably the most frustrating album that Tom has done. I love tracks like Jockey Full Of Bourbon and Downtown Train. They are up there amongst his best. Tracks like Cemetery polka leave me cold. A mixed bag but still enough to make it a decent album.
I can understand the appeal here, and can understand it as brilliant songwriting, but frankly I find it annoying to listen to.
Gritty and eclectic, each track has a unique feel. Gun Street Girl and Tango Til They're Sore are standouts to me, but really this album is excellent and original from start to finish.
You may develop a strong craving for bourbon & sawdust while listening....
