"Those who know Tom Waits from his '80s work onwards may find it hard to believe that he began as an acoustic-based, folk-tinged singer-songwriter. But the proof is on his captivating 1973 debut album, Closing Time. Waits fills his first recording with tender evocations of lonesome barflies and ragged Romeos. His voice — a clearer if more callow instrument than it would become in later years — conveys a real compassion for the denizens of his songs. His tunes are steeped in nostalgia, with a touch of the blues and a hint of country. ""Ol' 55"" is at once upbeat and bittersweet, while ""Ice Cream Man"" has an R&B-ish flavor, and ""Martha"" is a slice of old-fashioned balladry. ""I Hope That I Don't Fall In Love With You"" reveals Waits as a master storyteller from the beginning. Closing Time is a heartfelt and quietly compelling opening statement from one of music's most unmistakable voices."
