Pitchfork
These albums function in Waits’ discography the way the film The Man Who Wasn’t There fits into the Coen oeuvre: they are self-homages, full of superceding revisitations, that hone rather than advance. […]

Rolling Stone
Written as theatrical scores, these records bloom on their own. They are also testaments to Waits’ gift for making tangible magic from odd clatter: dusky strings, mooing horns, ancient keyboards. […]

PopMatters.com
Musically, the albums are not as different as initial press reports suggested. Alice was supposed to be gentle, mellow and piano-drivenand Blood Money was screaming, percussive rage. In fact, Blood Money is not even close to the sonic insanity of The Black Riderand Alice is perky enough in places to provide some relief from the sadness. […]
