CD Review: Tom Waits, “Glitter & Doom Live” | Popdose

Tom Waits - Glitter & Doom LiveMy review of the new Tom Waits album, Glitter & Doom Live was posted to Popdose today:

“It’s dark in here. Really dark. That’s probably for the best, because it makes it hard to see the creepy and crawly things. The slick and the slimy things. And that’s just the characters at the bar. The place smells like a unique blend of stale cigarettes, cheap perfume, and over-saturated urinal cakes. Over in the corner, lit only by a bare 40-watt bulb that someone has thrown a red stocking over, is the band. The music they’re playing sounds like something out of a carnival in hell. They’re led by a gravel-throated rabble rouser, and the moment he opens his mouth to sing, everyone in the place turns toward him as one.”
