TJR says

A bit tossed off and bit of a dip in form as far as I'm concerned, although two of the blusier tracks - “Heartattack And Vine” and “Mr. Siegal” - at least add a bit of spark. The latter would be covered to great effect by Screamin' Jay Hawkins in 1991, whilst “Jersey Girl” would be covered by Bruce Springsteen in 1984, earning some welcome dollar and respect for Waits.
