Album artwork for Rain Dogs by Tom Waits

2023 Remaster. This utterly essential 1985 LP from Waits. Tom Waits discarded his bohemian sage persona with the radical Swordfishtrombones, and this follow-up release synthesized and developed themes from that groundbreaking album. Ever-shifting percussive textures are supported, where applicable, by horns or farfisa organ and several guest musicians, including Rolling Stone Keith Richards, contribute to its melange. Waits' bourbon-laced voice is as riveting as ever, intoning lyrics that are, at various times, touching, evocative, sly or simply funny. his off-kilter perceptions encompass country, polkas and heart-rending ballads, each of which he expresses with consummate ease.
