Twentysomething is a stunning second album. After rising to prominence with his debut album Pointless Nostalgic, Jamie Cullum signed to Verve in spectacular fashion with a million pound deal. If there was any pressure involved, Cullum certainly doesn't let it show on his first album for the label. Where Pointless Nostagic was recorded with a student loan, the follow-up was made on analogue tape at London’s Mayfair studios (where Radiohead and Oasis had recently recorded) and was produced by Stewart Levine (Simply Red, BB King, Masters at Work, George Benson). Like its predecessor, it finds Cullum lending his warm, distinctive voice to jazz standards and popular classics such as "What a Difference a Day Made", "Singing in the Rain" and "I Get a Kick Out of You". There are renditions of more contemporary songs too, most notably Jeff Buckley's "Lover, You Should Have Come Over" and Jimi Hendrix's "Wind Cries Mary", and Jamie's own material (written with his brother Ben), including the gently rolling "All at Sea" and the Van Morrison-esque title track. Difficult to know whether anyone is worth a million pounds, but Twentysomething certainly sounds like a million bucks and re-establishes Cullum as indubitably the coolest crooner on the block. --Paul Sullivan

To put it mildly, I get ever so slightly annoyed when artists bring out 'Special Editions' of their albums a year after the original release, with added tracks. The fans that have already shelled out for the first CD face spending even more money - and what for?
First of all, 'High and Dry' isn't a bonus track; it was on Pointless Nostalgic. 'Everlasting Love' and 'Frontin' have already been released as singles - if he wanted to put these on an album, why not his next one?
Don't get me wrong - I love Jamie Cullum. I own both his albums and listen to them all the time. It's the money-grabbing record companies that I hate.
If you don't already own this album, or you're a really fanatical Cullum fan, then buy this. But if you have the 2003 Twentysomething, then don't line the pockets of his record company even more. The 14 original tracks are sufficient to tell you that Jamie is one of the most talented artists around, and will be for a long time to come.

I first saw Jamie on Parkinson. Michael seemed really excited and as i love music, i was interested to hear what was coming. From the moment he tapped on his piano, i fell in love with him. I knew then that he would become very big. It was because of that performance i asked for the album for christmas and i have loved it ever since.

Some of the reviews seem very harse on here- how can someone review something they heard on the phone in a car? I've heard plenty of tracks waiting in a phone queue and hated them, only to hear the same track a few days later on the radio or on cd and love it. Some have also complained it isn't pure jazz- jazz is probably the most diverse genre in music as it alows other genres to influence the tracks. If you compare it to older jazz records, then yes this may be true, but this is jazz with a twist, and at the time of release, it was very different from what was on offer. I also agree with the reviewer that said about the special edition- that's the version that was bought for me, but it grates me to think they can do this. I bought viva la vida and a few weeks later, they released prospects march- how unfair is that?!

There is a mixture of covers and his own work here. You have upbeat numbers such as "i could have danced all night" to the ballads such as "blame it on my youth" (it was thanks to jamie i covered the song in a performance and got a high mark!). What i love about jamie is the fact that he can't notate music, yet he still manages to produce his own fantastic materials. It inspired me by making me realise that as long as you understand the music, then it will sound great, as he does here.

What's good about good-bye? Well, what's special about a Special Edition? "A music fan from United Kingdom" is not wrong with his/her take on record companies trying to (re)line their pockets with money from the fans that already shelled out cash in the first place.
That said, it should be noted that "Twentysomething" is stellar throughout, and that the bonus tracks are well worth having. "High and Dry" actually IS a bonus track, taken from the US version of "Twentysomething" and is quite different than the "Pointless Nostalgic" version (check out the drumming anchoring the tune). And for those of us in the US, "Everlasting Love" is only available on the Bridget Jones 2 soundtrack and "Can't We Be Friends" was only available via iTunes, so it is nice to have them all on one CD.
"Twentysomething" (Special Edition or not) is a must have, and Jamie is a talent that will be around for years to come...

Yes fantastic listening is to be had with this album from Jamie Cullum, I have owned the special edition version for 4 or 5 years now. This is only the second review I've ever left on here, mainly because I feel the balance of 3/5 ratings for this gem is so unfair... This album can only make your day brighter with it's uplifting melodys & feel good tracks, simply put in my humble opinion you need this in your life!!

This has got to be the best album I have owned in a very long time. I asked friends for recommendations as I wanted to try something new and someone recommended Jamie Cullum to me. I'm really glad she did as "All at Sea" from this album has become one of my favourite tracks of all time. There are many other good tracks on this album and it really is very much worth buying.

Never mind 'Is it jazz or is it pop?' Those of us who love jazz have been wasting our breath along these lines for longer than I've been alive. Does it work as music? Of course it does, and that's all that matters. I've just acquired some of the bossa nova recordings Stan Getz made with Astrud Gilberto, Luis Bonfa et al and I've no doubt the same sterile debate took place at the time about whether this could be proper jazz if it was so popular. Forget your categories, use your ears. If you do, you'll find that it's immediately obvious that Cullum is serious about jazz. His choice of material alone proves it. Devil Moon and Kick Out Of You might be obvious marks, but you can hardly say the same of But For Now or Blame It On My Youth which require a lot of conviction to sing with a straight face. As for Singing In The Rain, don't talk to me about respect for the material. It's a song by a third-rate songwriter turned producer that we only remember because of what Gene Kelly did with it. The liberties Cullum takes with the song definitely improve it.

And of course he's a good pianist, who doesn't show off as much as he could on this album (check out Catching Tales for real inventiveness). The solo on Kick Out Of You gives some idea though, as it's almost an exhibition of jazz piano styles from Monk to Shearing to Evans and probably a few I haven't noticed, as well as his own quite unpredictable moves. There's also some very surprising stuff on High And Dry. Pop song it may be, but I think McCoy Tyner would appreciate this performance.

And what's wrong with his voice? He doesn't sound like Sinatra or Joe Williams, but why should he?
