Tom Waits "Bone Machine" (1992)

"Bone Machine" marks the beginning of the third phase of Tom Waits' recordings.  Gone is the peyote fueled carnival barker, replaced by a demonic crooner who sings and chants and tells stories amid distortion, clang, and mayhem.  The songs themselves aren't as strong as those before, and for the most part not as strong as those that will come later.  But there are more than enough exciting moments to make this worth your time.
