The Rocky Mountain News talks "Orphans"

TOM WAITS, Orphans

• What you get: Three discs of Waits cleaning out his closet, divided into Brawlers (rockers), Bawlers (ballads) and Bastards (experimental).

• The best of the box: Just about everything. Waits is in fine voice with some of the best songwriting of his career. A few clunkers on Bastards, but the other two discs are near-perfect.

• The bottom of the box: You're left wanting for more.

• Who needs it? Everyone. Even casual Waits fans will find something to love here.
