Rolling Stone (5/23/02, p.78) - 4 out of 5 stars - "...[Waits'] throatis...pure theater, a wapon of pictorial emphasis and raw honesty....ALICE is...macabre in its details of destructive lust. But there are flickers of hope, too..."Spin (6/02, p.109) - 7 out of 10 - "...Worth its weight almost solely for 'I'm Still Here', one of those unbearably tender moments that Waits seems to pull out of his greasy head like a tick..."Q (May 2002, p.114) - 4 out of 5 stars - "...ALICE is described by Waits as an album of 'opiate songs'...oddly sideways lyrics and [an] often meditative vibe make it a strangely gorgeous and graceful work..."Alternative Press (7/02, p.96) - 9 out of 10 - "...[ALICE] has gained a reputation as Waits' "lost masterpiece." That claim proves well deserved..."Magnet (6-7/02, p.111) - "...Hovering around slower tempos...the weary pump organ and piano limp along while Waits' voice takes on the obsessive growl of a neurotic, jilted loser..."CMJ (5/20/02, p.6) - "...Brooding and jazzy..."Mojo (Publisher) (5/02, p.94) - "...Unhealthy obsession has rarely been this beautiful....skewed and drowsy, with wonky percussion and soft, smudged, narcotic strings...vaporous, layered, beautifully evocative..."NME (Magazine) (5/18/02, p.35) - 8 out of 10 - "...A shimmering, mournful gem..."57.86951

It's truly a musical with Waits' avant, freakish touch, including the hitting of some off-color notes and Victrola-like warbles to add a touch of dementia to the mix..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.77) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t has genius flashes of dustbowl sadness and swaying valediction..."40.8119
