7digital What we said: Like whisky and wine, Tom Waits’ voice only improves with age, and odds-on the former two have played a significant part in developing that rasping timbre. On his 17th studio album – the follow-up proper to 2004’s Real Gone – the guv’nor of alt-rock’s offering up a satisfyingly swampy musical mix of blues, jazz and vaudeville, whilst sating his thespian leanings by using his ravaged larynx to adopt a variety of disparate personas. That includes a broken man on the world-weary balladry of ‘Last Leaf’, a nightmare-inducing ogre on the demented stomp of ‘Hell Broke Luce’ and, on the croon-tastic ‘Kiss Me’, what can only be described as a sozzled Satchmo. Truly, the man is a one-off.
