It's not one of his stronger albums.

I prefer Alice by a significant margin.

I prefer Alice too, for its sweetness and vulnerability. It's very unique within his discography.

Song for song, I can't find any specific reason to criticize Blood Money though.

Those are my standouts as well. But I love every song.

As mentioned on the previous page, I think it contains his greatest song.

And it's pretty consistent.

i got into tom waits back in 1983. i was watching the friday nite music show, "the word" hosted by jools holland, when they played the tw video "in the neighbourhood", which i ~loved~

i scooted into town the next morning and bought the vinyl album "swordfishtrombones"

over the next few months i amassed about 10 of his albums

the tw cd's i currently own are:

asylum years (fave track- martha)

nighthawks at the diner (fave track- big joe & phantom 309)

foreign affairs (sight for sore eyes)

Heart attack & vine (ruby's arms)

Swordfish (johnsburgh, illinois; neighbourhood)

raindogs (downtown train, hang down your head, time, blind love)

mule variations (just bought this last week so not familiar with it yet)

real gone (hoist that rag, Sins of my father, barn, trampled rose)

I'm hoping for it being a tour announcement, but I wouldn't say no to new music.
