Rain Dogs is the eighth studio album by American singer-songwriter Tom Waits, released in September 1985 on Island Records. A loose concept album about "the urban dispossessed" of New York City, Rain Dogs is generally considered the middle album of a trilogy that includes Swordfishtrombones and Franks Wild Years.

Rain Dogs is the eighth album by American singer-songwriter Tom Waits. It’s often considered the middle album of a trilogy of sorts, starting with Swordfishtrombones and ending with Frank’s Wild Years. It’s an unpredictable, thoroughly unique album that, really, could only have been made by Tom Waits

But Rain Dogs is sprawling where its predecessor had been focused: Tom Waits' lyrics here sometimes are imaginative to the point of obscurity, seemingly chosen to fit the rhythms rather than for sense

Arranged By – Tom Waits, Uptown Horns (tracks: 11, 19). Art Direction – Peter Corriston. Engineer, Mixed By – Robert Musso. Mastered By – Howie Weinberg. Mixed By – Jeff Lippay (tracks: 17).

The album works as a whole.

Rain Dogs helped to solidify Tom Waits’ reputation as one of America’s great bohemian weirdos. Big Black Mariah -anchored by Keith Richards’ raucous guitar squawk and percussion seemingly salvaged from a junkyard-is a gnarly mash of country blues and avant-garde theatre. Anywhere I Lay My Head is equally cuckoo, with Waits howling like a drunken bulldog over marching-band jazz. But the record isn’t 100% bizarro-it also contains romantic stuff like Downtown Train, one of the all-time great subway love songs.

The image of "rain dogs" - animals who've lost their way home because the rain has washed away their scent - is an appropriate symbol for the entire cast of characters Waits has brought to life over the years, and this album has thus far proved to be his most enduring effort.
