TOM WAITS – Masterpiece ‘BONE MACHINE’ Released 30 Years Ago Today

Back in time

8 September 2022

Artist: TOM WAITS (72)
Album: BONE MACHINE – 11th LP
Released: 8 September 1992 – 30 years ago today

Rolling Stone Magazine: “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… Throughout the album lonesome travelers and restless strangers battle their lives with drink, religion and the active search for somewhere better than here… Albums this rich with spiritual longing prove the validity of that effort, no matter the odds.” Score: 4/5.

TUTV: One of Waits’ best, if not THE best. I wonder if he still doesn’t want to grow up.
