TOM WAITS Released His Memorable Longplayer ‘BONE MACHINE’ Twenty-Five Years Ago…

Artist: TOM WAITS
Album: BONE MACHINE
Released: 8 September 1992 – 25 years ago…
Cover image: it consists of a blurred , close-up image of Waits in a leather skullcap with horns and protective goggles, was taken by Jesse Dylan, the son of legend Bob Dylan.
Note: the album won ‘Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album‘ that year…
Rolling Stone wrote: “For more than twenty years, Tom Waits has chronicled the small wins and grotesque losses of the seedy underworld. Bone Machine, his first full-length studio album since Frank’s Wild Years (1987), continues observing a world of deathly mysteries, half-baked gospel truths and secular ambitions. His drunken bluster to the fore, Waits tramples melodies with an ear for twisting clichés. The music matches Waits’s hollers with plenty of upright bass, late-night piano and over-the-top percussion. Albums this rich with spiritual longing prove the validity of that effort, no matter the odds…”
My bone impression: Tom Waits is one of the last originals – incomparable,  special, genial, genuine and he always did/does it his way…
Three Top Tracks: Who Are You This Time / Going Out West / I Don’t Wanna Grow Up…

* WHO ARE YOU THIS TIME (lyric video) – vintage Waits ballad, human tristesse…

* GOING OUT WEST – punky creepiness at its very best…

* I DON’T WANNA GROW UP – irresistible cracker, insane video clip…
