Time to Get Manly 70: Tom Waits - Small Change

I randomly ran across a list of what Esquire magazine claims are "The 75 Albums Every Man Should Own." In this series of posts, I'll explore these manly, manly sounds.

Tom Waits - Small Change

Where's Luna's Penthouse represents an idealized version of a social life steeped in parties, drinks and swanky, late-night parties, Tom Waits paints a potentially more accurate picture of that kind of life on Small Change. Even the album cover suggests that perhaps the nightlife isn't as glamorous as it seems. Add to that songs like, "The Piano Has Been Drinking (Not Me)," "Bad Liver and a Broken Heart" and "The One That Got Away," and Small Change becomes the perfect album by which to lick your wounds and sober the fuck up.
