Alice by Tom Waits

Alice, Tom Waits fourteenth album was initially released in tandem with Blood Money  - the two albums contained songs Waits had written for plays and musicals. Alice had already been circulating as a bootleg for years but the finished released album showcased one of his more exquisite works with ruminations on death and loneliness set to his offbeat jazz-influenced structures and with of course that ragged barroom growl on top.

8/10 Jack 18th February 2017

This is a great late-night-drinking-alone-in-the-dark album, with varied soundscapes and incredible poignancy. The production is textured and focused. Waits' voice alternates between sensitive and gruff - he shows off his amazing singing powers, sometimes even sounding like his earliest stuff. The album may be a difficult listen for someone who hasn't heard at least a few Tom Waits songs, besides "Jersey Girl". Waits sticks to mainly winds, strings and, with some sparse percussion and the occasional guitar.
