Does anyone like him?

I only recently got into cousin played a few of his songs for me about 2 or 3 years ago and i was like..."What the hell is this? This is some of the worst shit I've ever heard"

But i actually listened to him about 3 weeks ago...and i haven't been able to stop...I'm pretty sure he's the music equivalent of smoking. It's horrible the first time you try it, but one you're hooked!!!

Tom Waits is great!
Blood Money is by far my favorite album.

I really like his music. Very clever lyrics.

I haven't seen The Imaginarium. Wanna get it though...looks absolutely epic! Have you seen him in Wristcutters? He's very good in that.
Rain dogs is an amazing album! So is blood money! I get the feeling that everyone seems to prefer his later stuff, to his earlier music! I think his earlier stuff, when he was on asylum records, is far more consistant then it is with his newer cds. His new ones are amazing..but i find myself wanting to skip a few tracks here and there.

He was great in Bram's Stokers Dracula.

The only song I know of his is Jersey Girl, which Bruce Springsteen made famous.

He is by far my favourite musician ever and has been for a few years. The man can play anything, and make you feel whatever emotion he wants you to feel. His stories are amazing and makes you feel.. well, whatever he wants you to feel. Have you seen any live interviews with him? His use of play-on words is fantastic. Seriously. Best. Musician. Ever. And what a snazzy dresser!
