His first studio album in seven years finds Tom Waits in possibly the finest voice of his career and at the height of his songwriting powers. Bad As Me displays the full career range of Waits' songwriting, from beautiful ballads to the avant cinematic soundscape. There is a pervasive sense of Tom and the players delighting in each other's musical company that brings a feeling of loose joy even to the album's saddest songs. Bad As Me is a Tom Waits album for the ages. Deluxe CD is packaged in a 40 page book with a bonus disc featuring 3 exclusive tracks!
