From Brad1770 01/08/2018 12:11
Ok here goes , I'm fully prepared for a zillion down votes

I'm a life long music nut ,listening to music is my passion .

But ....

I just don't get Tom Waits , I just don't and believe me I want to .

I understand his popularity , I understand he's "The Peoples Voice " apparently , I understand 'Rain Dogs' is the best album of 1985 . But whenever I listen I just don't enjoy his work

It took me a long time to come around to Radiohead , but I'm there now . Tom Waits ? The magic just is not happening.

I don't get Tom Waits

I wish I had known his music ages ago. I've only been getting caught up in the last few years. So much to him - he's one of my new favourites.
