Tom Waits ‎– Swordfishtrombones

Tom Waits' new album (1983) is so weird that Asylum Records decided not to release it, but it's so good that Island was smart enough to pick it up. Half of the fifteen cuts - the dirty blues, poetry recitals and odd instrumentals - would not sound out of place on a Captain Beefheart album. The rest of the record consists of gorgeous Waitsian melodies, which haven't been collected in such quantity since his ten-year-old debut album.
