Out Of Stock Tom Waits - Blood Money
Based on the play Woyzeck by Georg Buchner, and written for the production directed by Robert Wilson, Blood Money finds Waits at his most theatrical, not to mention his most depressing.
From the album’s opening moments, Tom’s beating us down with lines like, “If there’s one thing you can say about mankind, there’s nothing kind about man,” and, “All the good in the world, you can put inside a thimble and still have room for you and me.”  These aren’t lyrical jabs — they’re decisive haymakers.  By the time Waits is crying, “I don’t believe you go to heaven when you’re good.  Everything goes to hell anyway,” you already want to kill yourself, and you’re not even six minutes into the record. And really, that’s the best thing about listening to a Tom Waits album. They all somehow manage to pull you right down into the gutter with them, but you’re never sorry you made the trip.  Blood Money is a glorious nightmare, the perfect soundtrack for when you’ve just been dumped, or fired, or stabbed in the back, or hey… maybe you just killed somebody.  There’s no judgment to be found here — just thieves and snakes and drunkards, and God’s away on business.

About:Blood Money is especially grim, a bitter suite about greed and moral bankruptcy. "If there is one thing you can say/About mankind/There's nothing kind about man," Waits snaps in the bleak circus hop, "Misery Is the River of the World." In the rattling jig "God's Away on Business," the dancing is all done on suckers' graves
