CD S-Curve Records, 50999 264985 2 2, 2008, 12 Track

Amazon.co.uk

Long qualified for a state pension and generally recognised as a national treasure, Tom Jones is in no need of an unnecessary makeover, which is probably why 24 Hours turns out to be such a relaxed collection. Relaxed is a relative term for the Welsh veteran--Jones still bellows like a man trying to make himself heard over a rowdy crowd. But the best moments on 24 Hours, such as a terrifyingly spirited take of "I’m Alive", originally performed by Tommy James and the Shondells, and first single "If He Should Ever Leave You", a rather knowing if undeniably catchy pastiche of the supper club soul that made his name, could only be the work of one man. The stark title track enters Nick Cave territory while "The Road", a heartfelt if somewhat overdue apology to Jones’s loyally obscure wife Linda, will either repel or seduce. The louche "Sugar Daddy", penned by U2 no less, rather exalts Jones’s reputation as an ageing lothario, even as he seems determined to shake it off. The odd clunker aside (notably the rather naff "In Style and Rhythm") 24 Hours, produced by Future Cut, a team of studio bods half his age, is an enjoyably effective collection, filling a previously unnoticed niche between Duffy and Solomon Burke. --Steve Jelbert

Tom jones music has somewhat of fanatical devotion here in wales, probably the result in over 45years of writing and performing, it goes without saying even at nerely 70 he can still produce the goods, not least to say "24 hours" is very impressive even more so when compared with most of his recent 90s output, with the rather dated pop orientated hits such as "sex bomb" and the co-written "mama told me not to come" which have sunk without trace.

This album if nothing else is a major turning point, back to the upbeat funky soul songs he's become famous for, the 60's classics such as "it's unusual" and "what's new pussycat." This album even though it's fresh of the roll has some fantastic songs make no mistake about it, the best of the bunch "i'm alive" the dancy "feels like music" and "sugar daddy" ooze with passion and quality the other songs are just as fantastic as well.

Diversity on this album is a great aspect, as it combines wonderful pop sensibilities of love ballads with other more cool soul tunes, it works very well, at least i think so, tom's vocals as always are very strong and clean and i have no arguements about the production either, i am very surprised with this release as i only got to hear it by accident, a very fitting record anywhere.

Clearly anyone looking to this as a perspective buyer will probably already have a rough idea of what to expect, but this might just might be much better than you bargained for. I thoroughly recommend this as the songs on the album are easily good enough to rival a greatest hits compilation, and at this price its a steal, i don't have any criticisms really apart from probably being very annoyed if this album doesnt sell by the bucket load!

Highly recommended!

I've been a Tom Jones fan for many years, he's just cool. Great voice and appears to sing effortlessly. Now, I am NOT a fan of Strictly Come Dancing but I happened to be channel hopping when I found him singing on the BBC1 series ([]) and I just stopped.

Watch him sing. No effort at all. He just... sings. Amazing. I was captivated.

Finally got around to buying this album over the weekend and I sat down, earphones in, and listened to it from start to finish. It really is a great album. All the songs are good and in my opinion there isn't a duff one in there. There's a few in here which will make a 'best of' album in the future.

Watch Tom on Strictly Come Dancing (YouTube) and then buy the album here at Amazon. I went for the MP3 download. Today, I've listened to the album twice. :-)

Go Tom Go!

Tom Jones has seemed a little lost in the last few years, trying to get down with the kids and appeal to a new, younger audience. He reached his nadir with the atrocious and somewhat embarrassing 'Mr. Jones' collaboration with Wyclef Jean. Just recently his collaborations with Jools Holland have seen him give up on this track and concetrate on what he does best - belting out catchy songs with what must be the most powerful voice in the business.

On this album Tom really comes back full circle and delivers an album that would sit quite comfortably with much of his 60's breakthrough material. And that's no bad thing, he's the best there is at the powerful ballad/soul songs, and he brings all that experience to bear on these songs. An added attraction is that Tom has co-written many of the songs, giving it a very personal feel, especially 'the road', which is basically an apology to his long suffering wife.

All in all, a real return to form for Tom, delivering a catchy set of tunes with that unique voice in fine fettle. Recommended.

This is a review of Tom Jones,most recent album "24 hours"it is not a professional review ,more a feeling of how I received it and what it meant to me!

It is varied in style, but there is an overall feeling of the songs from the sixties that gave Tom his notoriety, there are modern tracks too, and some of it for me is ok but not wonderful, the best modern track is the contribution from U2 called sugar daddy. But both, give a little love and the 'modern classic -if he should ever leave you remain my favourites.

The feeling I was left with was to check out Tom's back catalogue, if that be good or bad ? the choice is up to you!

Rumoured to be influenced by the huge success of Amy Winehouse's retro sounding 'Back To Black', and perhaps also by Tom's own reacquaintance with his recently released 'This Is Tom Jones' tv series box set from Tom's 1969-71 period, '24 Hours' certainly has a retro flavour predominantly and also a rare sensitivity, certainly when compared with Tom's more recent output, because subtelty especially within some of the more downbeat tracks is a very prominant feature. Maybe this has something to do with the fact Tom has taken a hand in writing many of the tracks, and many of the songs more intimate flavour may contain themes that are especially close to Tom's heart - 'The Road' especially, written with Tom's long suffering wife in mind, appearing especially fitting. Vocally, pretty much on all the tracks Tom is in really fine form - 'We Got Love' is a surprising youthful sounding performance where you could be forgiven for thinking his vocal had been lifted from an old sixties soundtrack because it's so utterly charming, as is the r+b sounding 'Feels Like Music' which again evokes that bygone age.

However, not everything is so successful - the opening track 'I'm Alive' with a really bellowing vocal risks descending into a loud nothingness, and the U2 written track 'Sugar Daddy' seems pretty much anonymous because of a lack of a memorable tune. Maybe the album's biggest flaw is the fact that the sound on a number of the songs is so terribly compressed there's little room for them to breathe, which ultimately leads to them lacking the charm of their sixties counterparts - 'If He Should Ever Leave You' being a prime example. In this regard i think it's unfortunate Tom didn't go the whole hog to create a truly retro sound like Amy managed to do.
