    "I'd sell your heart to the junk man baby, for a buck, for a buck..." It's a beautiful album, as beautiful and disturbing as Alice.

    Dark and beautiful, gruff yet smooth, something that can only be accomplished by the great one.

    Waits -- now in complete mastery of his unique art -- knows what he's doing, and the stark, unforgiving brutality is leavened, or granted grace, by passages of purple pathos. [Co-Album Of The Month, June 2002, p.106]
  2. Like waking up one morning to discover you suddenly like coffee, this is one of those albums that feels natural; the discord and the overwrought weepiness, the experimentalism and the simplicity -- everything works. It fits.

    A powerful and almost gleeful celebration of the horrors of the world. [May 2002, p.114]
