Editorial Reviews

'24 Hours', his new album, might just be his best yet. It is certainly his most fully realised, and also his most intimate by far. There are reasons for this: the man who is arguably the best interpreter of any song he chooses to sing irrespective of genre has now, at last, turned songwriter. For the first time in his career, Tom has had a major hand in writing most of the songs collected here. Surrounding himself with a musically diverse group of producers and songwriters, Tom set about creating songs that would be big and impassioned and cinematic. Inspired by the kind of soul-searching that, he says, comes to us all sooner or later, much of '24 Hours' concerns those subjects closest to Tom's heart - his family, his grandchildren, life and death, and the power of memory. '24 Hours', his first album for Parlophone/S Curve, was recorded in Los Angeles throughout last year, and was mostly produced by Future Cut, the drum 'n' bass outfit who have previously worked with Lily Allen, Dizzee Rascal and Goldie.

I admit up front that I am a big fan of Sir Tom's... if he sings a song, I will give it a listen. With that in mind, I did my very best to listen to "24 Hours" and rate it on its own merits.

If you are a fan of Tom Jones, you should love this album. He doesn't "reinvent the wheel" here, he just does what he does best: belt out soulful, fun, awesome tunes. If you are NOT a fan of Tom Jones, you should still enjoy this album. If the stylings of Amy Winehouse or Duffy have done anything for you, pick up "24 Hours", because you will find a lot of that same brassy, ballsy UK soul.

What is truly remarkable to me is Jones' voice. While other "comeback" crooners like Tony Bennett, Johnny Cash, and most recently Neil Diamond ("Home Before Dark" is an excellent album, by the way) have lost a little of their voices' depth, Tom Jones sounds as strong as he ever has.

This is a great album from a great talent. Tom Jones fans rejoice... A-Tomic is back!

I have been a huge Tom Jones fan all of my life. I am 45 now and still get chills at his voice..and this cd will not disappoint you..My favorite tune so far is IF HE SHOULD EVER LEAVE YOU...The best "instrument" is his VOICE..He will ALWAYS BE..."THE VOICE"..it will always haunt us and live on forever. I believe the album intended to be a "retro" back to the awesome 60s sound of Tom..and it SUCCEEDED...beautifully...His voice never fails him..I'm in complete awe. I remember seeing Tom for the first time in my life a year or two ago...I was in the front row...You always wonder...an artist his age...does he HAVE to do it for money? And being in the front row gave me the answer I longed for...NO...he loves what he does. He was at the "encore stage" of the concert...and it was like he did not want to stop singing..I heard him turn to his band members and say (not audible to everyone..but I lucked out into the front row...) "we've GOT to do this one"....he really loved his gift of his voice and music. Excellent cd...get it.

I'm not sure why some reviewers feel it's just a run-of-the-mill pop album, I don't hear it that way at all. It's infused with retro/ classic Tom Jones, sure with modern elements but that's a good thing. It's clear he put a lot of time into making this album, every song has its own feel, they all are good and fresh, his voice is still in top form, and the album sounds better after each listen... it's TJ moving forward as an artist.

Times change - and what goes in and out of style is often very subjective to the period of time we are in. While Tom Jones has always maintained a core legion of fans - if you go back to the late 1970s and early 1980s and mention the name of Tom Jones, you probably would be laughed at. However if you went back to the 1960s, Tom Jones had an extremely devoted following. At the same time, it also seems that Tom Jones has somehow gone through a renaissance in the 2000s. People are now getting into Tom Jones again. It's not like there has been this great 1960s cultural renewal - it's just that Tom Jones music is suddenly come in today. Although this is a shot in the dark, one reason why I think that there is renewed interest in Tom Jones is because of the success that the "Austin Powers" movies had. Whatever it is, when I hear the sounds and music of Austin Powers - it immediately reminds me of Tom's music. I can honestly say that picture got me into Tom's music and thus I was inclined to explore his 2008 release "24 Hours". Now I'm not comparing this collection to Austin Powers music. This sound is much more mature. It also proves that Tom is still a force in the music scene.

I think there are several reasons for why Tom Jones can still have appeal in the 21st century. The main reason is Tom's unique baritone voice. Tom's vocals are some of the strongest in the music business. Whether its pop, dance - or even country and techno, Tom has always found the ability to adapt his style to many different music variants. Tom's music also has some very interesting sounds. Finally, I think Tom's strength as a live performer has really helped to solidify his appeal.

What can I say that hasn't already been written about this guy? There's virtually no style of song he can't sing with awesome pathos! I've been a huge fan of Tom Jones since the late 60's -I have all of his early LP's. As a serious singer myself I've always been amazed at the incredible vocal range and power he posesses. He's about a year older than me (I'm 68) and he's my vocal icon/hero... seeing/hearing him keeps me hanging in there - if he can still belt out the tunes, so can I. As far as this album, I like the fact that he's finally writing a lot of his own material. There's nothing like singing songs you've penned the lyrics and music to and lived yourself... it comes through as emotionally real and much more believable to the listener. His skillfulness on this album of songs is right up there with all of his previous albums. I can't wait for his next album! As far as I'm concerned... He's Still Got It!
