Absolutely love it, there is admittedly nothing as original and unique as one would expect from Tom Waits, but what you get is one of the most evocative albums. If you read the other comments, everyone seem to have a place or emotion that this album makes them think of, and that shows the quality of this album.
Man..this album makes me wish I still smoked....and drank.
Forse il mio disco preferito del Tom Waits ballader degli anni settanta, ancor più del comunque maggiormente compiuto "Blue valentine".
These songs stay with you. Later in his career Waits would tell stories about dashed dreamers, but here you feel that he's really one of them. A very moving experience.
Overall imoact: Excellent
Historal impact: Well appreciated
Emotional impact: Hazy, in a bar on an autumn weekday night
Production value: Very good, presence, transparency
Tom waits'second album was much more in line with the sound that waits' would be associated with in the seventies. It's a solid, jazz/pop album. Opener, new coat of paint, sets the scene, this is, as the title suggests, a Saturday night record. San Diego serenade, is lovely, as is, shiver me timbers, and, please call me baby. Diamonds on my windshield, hints at the later sounds waits' would employ. The title track is the nearest the record gets to the folkiness of, closing time, and closing track, the ghosts of Saturday night, wraps up the album perfectly. It's more consistent than, closing time, but it's still not a great album, and Waits would make better ones, but it does capture a slightly immature Waits who has yet to really find his true voice. So, another step in the right direction, just not quite there yet.
This album makes me want to put on my ballet shoes and find an empty dance room somewhere.
This record transports me to a shitty bar from a shitty neighborhood from the outskirts of an American metropolis in the 1940s, and I like it. One of the most atmospheric albums I've ever heard.
This is a damn tough album to "review". You could say it's got this (draggin blues piano, hints of smoky jazz, blah-blah), or that (Waits' trademark gravelly growl), but it's so much more. There's emotion behind every song, and the musicianship (albeit sloppy at times) that matches.
His first two albums are amazing. After that, he gets weird, and his voice gets weirder. I still like him, mind you. But those first two are such lovely records.
