Product Description


There's no denying that Mr Jones' last album of covers with latter day artists brought him to a younger audience who marvelled at the sheer coolness and sexual charm of the hairy-chested vocalist. However, this may have gone to Tom's head a bit as this latest album finds him at the mercy of top refugee producer Wyclef Jean and a whole new dictionary of "bling" words that mean something to "The Kids". On first listen there are many parts which will make you cringe as if your dad was wearing a baseball cap and rapping for your friends at a 14th-birthday party, but once you suspend disbelief and get into it, Mr Jones is a pretty good collection of songs. Opening single "TJ International" finds him semi-rapping about how great he is with a Nightmare on Elm Street-style melody sung by Wyclef; though not a standout on the album it has potential to become a live favourite for years to come. The following song "Younger Days" is a remarkably sentimental trip down memory lane showing a wizened edge to his lyrics (aside from the mantra "Bumrush the door") and just gets better and better on repeat listens. A strong highlight has to be the epic ballad "The Letter" which is classic Tom vocally but with a smooth R&B feel that suits him far more than the pseudo hip-hop beats found elsewhere on the album. Of the three cover versions, there's a contemporary dedication to legendary blues guitarist Leadbelly with a version of "Black Betty" and an okay remix of "I Who Have Nothing" but both songs highlight that Mr Jones appears to be more of a Wyclef Jean album with Tom as guest vocalist rather than the other way around. Give it time though, it's weird at first but it gets there in the end. --David Trueman

5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the year-Sorry, it's true 27 Nov 2002
By Lubi
Format:Audio CD
I am not some little kid who buys one album a year, I actually but about two or three a week. In fact I am a professional musician(albeit a classical one-opera singer!), so please take my rating seriously!
I saw Tom on the Jonathon Ross show sing International, and thought it interesting. Bought the album, and at first thought it just too odd. But perserverance has changed my mind, and now it is under my skin. I think it's the sexiest, funkiest hillarious and downright stupid album this year! The covers are excellent, the new songs great (track 2-amazing despite the silly lyrics) and beautifully produced. It just sits well in the cd player.
And lets not forget the skill Tom shows in just being able to sing this stuff. As an opera singer, I am amazed at his sheer vocal technique, especially at his age(!), his timing and musicality and spot on. It's nice to hear this stuff sung by a real weighty, meaty voice with timbre and resonance, than with a nasily pre-pubescent falsetto.
Just don't take it too seriously, stick it back in the slot, and let give it another go!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mr Jones 16 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This new offering from Tom may not be easy listening for those who prefer the classic songs Tom as given us over the years, but don't let that put you off. Take time to listen to the lyrics and appreciate that this is Tom making todays music his own.
Mr Jones, love It!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom is No.1 29 May 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I am a new fanatic of Tom's. I recently went to a concert, i found Tom amazing. No matter what he sings it sounds good. I especially like 'Black Betty' and 'This is my life'. If you are a true fan of Tom then its worth the buy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stick with it and you'll get it. 6 Nov 2004
By Ian
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album on the basis of what I'd heard on the Reload CD. First listens were a huge disappointment! The album actually ended up at the back of a cabinet as one to be forgotten. On a subsequent car journey however I was looking for something different to listen to, so gave it another go. What had I been missing? The trick was not to expect a Reload 2, but to listen unbiased. This album has certainly grown on me and is now an almost permanent fixture in the CD changer.
