The Waiting Room is Tindersticks tenth studio album. Musically, it touches on virtually all the places they've visited in the past, but offers hints at new directions too. The soundtrack vibe the band have given off since they started working with director Claire Denis back in the late '90s, is virtually ever-present, but it doesn't bog down the album. They, along with Stuart Staples in particular, are so steeped in cinema that each song here warranted its own short film short by a different director -- Rosie Pedlow & Joe King, Christoph Girardet Gabriel Sanna, and Denis included. There are also hints of the taut emotional drama they so effortlessly showcased in earlier years, though it's colored by more restraint.
