The first chapter in the trilogy rounded out by Franks Wild Years and Rain Dogs, Tom takes a stylistically different from his previous LPs. Moving away from more simple piano and string orchestra arrangements of the late seventies replacing that with more diverse and percussive instrumentation and a more abstract approach, Swordfishtrombones is Tom’s first self-produced album and the product of creative freedom that would mark the career to follow. And people noticed with Spin Magazine named Swordfishtrombones the second greatest album of all time.
