Product Description

No USA Release Date Scheduled! this 1999 Duets CD Includes Guest Spots by Van Morrison, Chrissie Hynde, Zuchero and Many More.

Amazon.com

Tan of skin and furry of chest, Tom Jones has been wowing the crowds since he first walked away from the green, green grass of his Welsh home and into the hearts of housewives the world over. Jones rode the 1990s kitsch revival and, with the release of 1999's Reload, proved himself to be one of the music industry's most powerful and entertaining survivors. A collection of duets and collaborations with various contemporary stars of pop, rock, and indie music (Robbie Williams, the Stereophonics, the Cardigans, and Catatonia's Cerys Matthews, to name a few), Reload put Jones back on the musical map for a whole new generation of music fans. Highlights here include his cover of Portishead's "All Mine" with the Divine Comedy, his exuberant take on "Mama Told Me Not to Come" with the Stereophonics, and a playful "Are You Gonna Go My Way" with Williams. --Ted Kord

I've been an admirer of Tom Jones since he took Prince's dull song "Kiss" and turned it into something fun with Art of Noise. Any performer who can approach his art with such a sense of humour both about the music and himself is worth my respect.
With "Reload+2," Tom Jones serves up an entire album of such cover tunes. While few of the tracks have that tongue-in-cheek feel of the "Kiss" song, they are all interesting interpertations of other people's hits.
"Reload+2" is even more remarkable in the fact that Jones has teamed up with a wide range of collaborators for this album, many of whom are somewhat shocking. I'd never been able to conceive of Jones performing with The Cardigans, Divine Comedy, or Barenaked Ladies, yet on "Reload+2" he does. There are 15 additional oddball team-ups, all of which have produced exceptional covers.
Stand-out tracks are "Burning Down the House" (with the Cardigans), Lust for Life (with the Pretenders), Little Green Bag (with Barenaked Ladies), She Drives Me Crazy (with Zucchero), all of which display that sense of fun that I loved about the old "Kiss" cover. "All Mine" (with Divine Comedy), "You're Right, I'm Left, She's Gone" (with James Dean Bradfield), and "Sex Bomb" (with Mousse T.) are just damn cool covers by any standard.
Finally, I recommend the import "Reload+2" over the regular album, which is simply "Reload." The +2 are live recordings of "Unbelievable" and "Come Together." Both are as fun-filled and worthwhile as the "Kiss" cover that first turned me onto Jones, and they are well worth the additional expense.

Finally, the full European version of RELOAD is available on this side of the Atlantic! For perhaps a year, I've been trying to get this version of RELOAD that has the Peppermint Jam Mix of "Sexbomb" on it, and my wait is over. Having heard this cut on "Wright Around the World" on the BBC WorldService, I had searched high and low, Internet and otherwise, for this CD. And while Amazon did list it, it never arrived. Now, however, it ships in 24-hours.
Up until this expanded version arrived, I had to make due with the RELOAD that did not have "You Need Love Like I Do (Double Click Remix)" either. Perhaps "make due" is too strong of a phrase for the tune selection, parnerships on duets and arrangements are first class. Not all are true winners, otherwise the CD would be rated 5 stars, but six of the tunes are GREAT with "Burning Down the House (with the Cardigans)," "She Drives me Crazy (with Zucchero)," "Lust for Life (with the Predenders)," "Little Green Bag (with Barenaked Ladies)" and the aforementioned "Sexbomb (with Mousse T.)
If you have ever liked Tom Jones, and are looking for a good "dynamic" CD of covers with interesting duets, this is the CD for you. Be sure to try to get the version with 19 tunes on it.

I always thought Tom was a cool dude, but this CD just proves it for once and for all.
I was on a Qantas flight from Perth to Sydney last month, and they played a live concert of his on the plane. He blew me away with how much energy he still has, and how good his voice is after all these years.
Now, I'm over here in England on business and I drop into an HMV. I see this CD on sale, and I am like "what the heck, it looks interesting..."
Get it back to my friend's house here, pop the CD in and BAM!!!
Every song a winner here, folks. "Are you gonna go my way", "I'm left, you're right, she's gone", You need love like I do", all are standouts for sure.
One caveat - somebody PLEASE remix this one and get Chrissy Hynde out of "Lust for life". Tom has a strong voice, and she sounds like she's sleepwalking through the song. Tom does a bang up job on this one though - just like he does on every other song here.
Tom, you ROCK, dude!
Buy this CD, folks. Your ears will love you for it.
Frank

It's really great to see Tom Jones is still in action after all these years. I saw him in concert a little over a year ago, and he put on one heck of a show. The ladies still throw their panties at him! Very cool."Reload" is a great Tom Jones album. He sounds like he & his singing partners are all having a great time, and the whole fun feel of the album translates very well to the listener. "Burning Down The House" pairs Tom with The Cardigans, and the result is a very catchy version of the old Talking Heads hit. "Sexbomb," an original tune, is one of Tom's most fingerpoppin' best. He & Robbie Williams tear through "Are You Gonna Go My Way" with relish, Tom & Cery's "It's Cold Outside" is a hoot, and the powerful "Motherless Child" is another great showcase for Tom's still-commanding voice. And these are just a few examples of how good this album is!Just one question: "Reload" is a huge hit in Britain and other parts of Europe, so **WHY** can't it get released here in North America? Absolutely puzzling. I'm telling ya, Tom Jones would have hit singles galore lined up & ready for him over here if "Reload" ever gets a U.S. release. In the meantime, buy it on import. It's totally worth it!
