If you like Tom Waits, Mose was one of his earliest heroes and had an influence on most of Tom's early records, and remains one of Tom's heroes.
Mose is a great musician, and an even greater poet. He gets me through, along with Burroughs, Jesus, both McMurtrys, Buddha, Twain, and the rest who tell it straight but maintain their compassion and sense of humor in the face of human barbarity and self-deception. My wife and daughter don't dig him - too honest.
As for the sophomoric critics, "I can't understand it, so it must suck"; perhaps they are just sophomores. Last night I had the pleasure of telling my 20-year old daughter that she was way ahead of me by grasping the complex greys of human ethics at her age - that was about the pinnacle of my ability to distinguish good from evil. Sorry,I digress. Anyway, I don't worry 'bout a thing, cause nothin's going to be all right.
