Customer Reviews

A truly wonderful gospel album from the biggest voice in the business.

This album is so beautifully crafted. The songs are right for Jones' voice, a voice that does not sound 70 years old.

We start with 'What Good Am I?' - an introspective look at loving thy neighbour that exercises Sir Tom's range before moving onto 'Lord Help' - an uptempo prayer for those struggling in this land. From there to 'Did Trouble Me' with a surprise banjo in the second verse and onto 'Strange Things' that takes the listener back to a revival tent in the 1950's.

The electric guitars come out for 'Burning Hell' as Jones holds the high notes before mellowing down with 'If I Give My Soul', a song of repentance supported by a couple of guitars and drums. 'Don't Knock' is part 1970's Las Vegas and part Billy Graham Crusade and is followed by the slower 'Nobody's Fault But Mine' with a traditional blues feel. 'Didn't It Rain' takes us back to the Las Vegas Showroom before the Country-inspired 'Ain't No Grave' about Judgement Day and the Rapture.

'Run On' has an early Beatles feel before bonus version of 'Burning Hell' giving a strong arena performance buzz to it.

Like his previous album '24 Hours' one can feel Tom Jones' enjoying himself in making this record. The legions of Tom Jones fanatics will be surprised by the variation in this album and hopefully newbies will enjoy listening to a craftsman make a wonderful record.

His actual style -- a full-throated, robust baritone that had little regard for nuance and subtlety -- never changed, he just sang over different backing tracks. On-stage, Jones played up his sexual appeal; it didn't matter whether he was in an unbuttoned shirt or a tuxedo,...
