Review by JaredD
4 stars out of 4

This is another album that depends a lot upon atmosphere, and the presence of an audience is what really does that. It's a lot better than Tom's next live endeavor "Big Time." But there, he was just being wierd for no reason. You can always expect to find a certain wierdness on any Tom Waits album, but here it seems more balanced.

Tom Waits is one great songwriter. Not a great singer, but a beautiful songwriter. He's great teller of tales that many other songwriters wouldn't touch, and that's really what people like him for. He's also not afraid of letting his somewhat twisted sense of humor shine through. He also uses his voice to convey a sort of broken tenderness on his love songs ("Nobody").

In essence, all the things that are great about Tom Waits come together on this album. Nighthawks At The Diner is an exceptional album, and worth much more than it costs.
