The American singer/songwriter Tom Waits has been since the 1970s as one of the most influential pop musicians. Are hard to fathom music is a mixture of American and European styles such as jazz, blues, cabaret and classical music. Then in 2002 the message came up that he wanted to release two albums at the same time, found anyone that foolish and irresponsible commercial. However, it is understandable because the albums Blood Money and Alice have many similarities. The albums are both based on plays by Robert Wilson and the songs layers in both cases for several years on the shelf. However, there are also differences in terms of both music and in terms of atmosphere. Where Alice relatively cheerful and light-footed sounds is Blood Money pretty philosophical and pensive. Waits wrote the songs in 2000 for the play Woyzeck, based on the eponymous story by the poet Georg Büchner. It's about a poor soldier who slowly goes mad and eventually murdered his own wife for a little money. No story to be happy and so is the music. Waits has Blood Money audibly influenced by Büchners contemporary Kurt Weil. As a result, this cd contains pretty heavy costs that probably only at the unconditional Waits-fans will delight.
