Tom Waits annoys me. His fans think he's "cool" and "original" and "sincere", but he's really just as much hype as any other performer, and his "originality" is nothing more than free association while drinking.

Kiev, what a sad life you must lead to feel that someone like Tom Waits has a gimmick. The guy sells 50,000 albums, he's definitely not out to conquer the world. The writing is brilliant, his lyrics dead on. Take it from one lousydrunk, he's the real deal.

My big problem with Tom Waits music is ITS LACK OF MUSIC. You'll find more music in a pan of Jiffy Pop than you will in all Waits' CD's combined. Someone out to put Tom Waits and Stephen Sondhiemm on a rocket and shoot them into the sun.

Are you being serious? If you were joking then I don't it because I've never heard music come from Jiffy Pop. "I'm Not Missing You At All" is a good song by Tom Waits.

At least Jiffy Pop's got a beat. Tom Waits just moans.

That's John Waite. Tom Waits is very big in India. Him and Vladimir Vysosky in Russia have very large followings in India. Love this site, just came in from an e-mail recommendation.

Oh, please... I have never heard of a Tom Waits board with four people in it and two people hating him. I can understand people not hearing of him, but if you don't like Tom Waits - you got some major problems.

To the people who hate Tom Waits - Please just listen to "Kentucky Avenue" - if you tear up at the end of that, you're not human.

I think you mean 'if you DON'T tear up at the end, you're not human.' And I agree with you. Tom Waits is an amazing songwriter.

The songs he did for One From the Heart are awesome. They fit that Las Vegas seedy fantasy world just perfectly.

I agree, whoever slams Tom is an idiot. He's as geniune as Lassie. Not a false note in either one's performance.

Mule Variations is awesome. I wasn't really aware of Tom Waits until a friend gave me that cd... I've since gone back and bought everything he's ever done.

Mule Variations was him doing an impression of himself - Rain Dogs is his best in my opinion. One of the great albums of all time.
