At last the right songs for an amazing voice,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Praise & Blame (Audio CD)
I've always loved Tom Jones' voice, but not been too keen on the type of songs chosen for his recordings, and have never felt like buying any of his albums, but on hearing tracks from this album on the radio I knew I had to have it.
The full album doesn't disappoint either, every track is strong and they are all full of emotion. In an interview I heard Tom said he'd been trying to record this sort of music for years but the record company hadn't wanted to, yet more proof that most record company executives don't have a clue about music.
The only comparison I can make is when Johnny Cash started the American series, a long-standing artist producing fabulous emotive work that was thought not that commercial but that will win many new fans.
