In my collection, I have four different covers of Heartattack and Vine, and Lydia Lunch's is still my favorite. Muriel is great done in prayerful whispers, and the guy that sings Broken Bicycles lays down a dirge for a vocal track. Screamin' Jay opens the throttle up wide on Whistlin', and the call-and-answer format of Virginia Avenue is really neat.
I like music that doesn't sound like everything else. That's why I like Tom. If that's why you listen, you owe it to yourself to pick up both this and "Step Right Up," which, in its own way, is even weirder and more wonderful than this one.

I like Tom Waits most of the time. It was hard for me to listen to all of this album. This is one I will probably give away or resell if I need some cash. Read morePublished on May 20, 2002
Ok, I picked this album up while buying another bad tribute album (Badlands: Tribute to Springsteen's Nebraska). Read morePublished on March 19, 2001
This album - which I don't own, and never will - underlines the simple fact that Tom Waits covers never improve on the original. So why bother? Read morePublished on December 27, 2000 by Tinus Horn
