    I was disappointed that Rhapsody hasn't gotten this album up for streaming as they pretty much have the rest of Waits' catalog up through Alice. Anyway...I read the review at allmusic.com and now I'm listening to their sound samples. Sounds typically fantastic! Anyone have it that can confirm?

    Yep, very cool, he really finds just the right spot in the song.

    I also noticed that Claypool and Brain play on this one. I knew Les had played on one in the past but I don't know that Brain ever has.

    If Tom Waits doesn't make you drink booze - nobody will!

    I bought this album the day before it "came out" and I haven't stopped listening to it. I really love this album. It is as refreshing as any other Waits album, but I still think I prefer Alice...not by much though. As usual, Waits wondefully balances the sublime with the bizarre (in a very good way).

    It's great! HOIST THAT RRRAAAGGGG!!!!!
  9. Brain's played on a few tracks before this cd. Both on Bone Machine and Mule Variations. And Mr. Lalonde played guitar on track 1 o' the Variations. In fact, I'm pretty sure that song was Tom, all three hoodlums from Primus and a sax player...
