TOM WAITS-REAL GONE-NEW LP
TOM WAITS

"REAL GONE"

NEW DOUBLE LP

REISSUE



Personnel: Tom Waits (vocals, guitar, chamberlin); Marc Ribot (guitar, banjo); Larry Taylor (guitar, bass guitar); Harry Cody (guitar); Les Claypool (bass guitar); Casey Waits (drums, percussion, turntables); Brain (percussion); Mark Howard (bells).
There have been many incarnations of Tom Waits--the boozy piano balladeer, the arch Kurt Weill acolyte, the bold sonic experimentalist--but the one that pops up on REAL GONE is probably most akin to the raw, howling, modern primitive of BONE MACHINE. As he did on that 1992 album, Waits gets in touch with his inner Captain Beefheart on REAL GONE. Instead of employing arrangements that merely suggest the accompaniment of a FAT ALBERT-style junkyard band, Waits actually sounds like he's hooting and hollering in the middle of a Salvation Army scrapyard, albeit one populated by junkmen with an inherent simpatico for his medium.
The absence of piano is significant--Waits's jazzy harmonic underpinning is entirely dismantled here, leaving only the most basic, blues-oriented structures atop which Waits hangs his distinctive poetic imagery, at once surreal and highly detailed. There's an overwhelming sense of darkness ("How's It Gonna End," "Dead and Lovely"), but there are also moments of pure unfettered glee "Metropolitan Glide," "Shake It"), which are often goosed along by Waits's son Casey on turntables and percussion. A perennial romantic, Waits does let in a little melodic sunshine on the poignant closing ballad, "Day After Tomorrow," but for the most part, REAL GONE is a deliriously wild ride.

 Tom Waits is one of the most influential musicians in the world today, an artist who never rests on his laurels. He continues to re-invent music, push boundaries and create new sounds. On Real Gone, the up tempo tracks are some of the rawest and most kinetic he's ever laid down...He's never sounded like he's had this much fun...while the ballads are among his most beautiful and even chilling at times. Real Gone also contains his first overtly political song, "The Day After Tomorrow", a plaintive letter home from a young soldier in the middle of a war. Taken as a whole, the experience is breathtaking.

 
Editorial reviews
This is classic Waits....It's certainly his most outwardly guileless and full-hearted record for some time...
The Wire  

Ranked #1 in Magnet's The 20 Best Albums Of 2004 - REAL GONE is a great record because Waits' homesteader's heart drives it form intro to fadeout.
Magnet  

Ranked #11 in Uncut's Best New Albums of 2004 - Scarily magnificent.
Uncut  

3 stars out of 5 - Waits is still taking more risks than most US' singer-songwriters' of his generation, and parts of this album rock righteously....One from the heart...
Uncut  

4 stars out of 5 - As a songwriter and sound sculptor, Waits is intimately familiar with shadows and dread - the frank, poetic details of life and love on the margins....REAL GONE is his first, full-tilt protest record.
Mojo  

[T]he sometimes jaunty rhythms add tension to Waits' dark tales....The effect is often riveting... - Grade: B+
Entertainment Weekly  

Ranked #27 in Spin's 40 Best Albums of the Year
Spin  

[With] roadhouse guitar and scratchy bass...anchoring it all with his primal, bellowing tales of woe. - Grade: A-
Spin  

3 stars out of 5 - The core of REAL GONE, actually, is gospel music flipped inside out - an unholy voice, singing about the conspicuous absence of divine mercy.
Rolling Stone
