Pitchfork
As with any Tom Waits album, there are a few absurd affectations at work, both on record and off but there’s enough variation here that all that oldness and weirdness– all those frantic, busted melodies, all that carnie growl, all those sarsaparilla bottles banging around the backseat– never gets tiresome.

The Guardian
For all the excellent clowning around, Bad As Me is, chiefly, an album full of compassion, anger and sorrow – the stuff that puts Waits on the same page as upstanding Bruce Springsteen and the emotional surgeon Leonard Cohen, as well as bad old Nick Cave and professional drunks the Pogues […]

The Independent
It must be wonderful to exercise such protean command over one’s artand it’s immensely satisfying to witness it wielded by a musician of such remorseless integrity. […]
