Tom Waits Bad As Me Comment Party

Tom Waits has a new album coming soon, and we’ve already heard the title track and “Back In The Crowd.” Now, the entire album is streaming on If you’re not a part of Waits’s online mailing list, you’ll have to give up an email address to get a code to hear it. That code might take a few minutes to arrive, but it’ll get there. On first listen, the album seems to focus on Waits’s deranged-preacher side, offering up a ton of mangled New Orleans jazz and not as much of the heart-ripping ballads that give so many of us throat-lumps. But what do you guys think?

Bad As Me
is out 10/24 on Anti.
