Tom Waits, according to the esteemed American critic Robert Hilburn, is “clearly one of the most important figures of the modern pop era.” Such sentiments are not mere hyperbole; in a career that now spans four decades and over 20 albums, Tom Waits has emerged as an extraordinary innovative force, a singular voice whose music remains determinedly—and even ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great one from the master June 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Tom Waits has always has a knack for creating moody, melancholy masterpieces. This track is no exception. A dark and gruff country flavored ditty, "Hold On" is a logical progression from his previous work. Hope and Despair seem to dance a slow Texas two-step here, as Tom reminds us over a plodding, almost dirge-like western guitar sound to "...take my hand, I'm standing right there, you gotta hold on..." Beautiful imagery, great atmospheric music, plus the addition of two non-album tracks make this one worth buying for sure.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tom Waits Hold On February 7, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The "Hold On" song which was the one I wanted played fine. Song 2 would not play as there must have been damage on the CD. Song 4 was only.39 seconds long. So the CD had 4 song and only 2 are playable. I will never purchanse a items out of the country again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buzz 'Gitdown'john November 26, 2006

If Waits had only written 'Buzz Fledderjohn' his place as a master American song writer would be assured.
