If you don't have ``Small Change'' and for some unknown reason refuse to get it, then HeartAttack & Vine is the quintessential Tom Waits. It will repay the many listens it deserves. Play it, play it, and play it. Then, if you are like so many, it will become almost drug-like: you will then demand to hear it, again and again. It is not his best album (no, I won't enter that battle), but it really is one of his best, and worth the price, really. Then, get ``Small Change'', and all the others. Once you ``get'' Waits, you really have to get it all.
