Greatest Hits [Germany/UK]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
One of the U.K.’s great pop vocalists, Tom Jones makes the most of an instantly recognizable, virile-toned vocal style that has sustained his career from the 1960s through the present day. This enjoyable collection pulls together all of Jones’s signature performances, from the zesty Brit Invasion smashes “It’s Not Unusual” and “What’s New Pussycat?” to his mainstream hits “She’s a Lady” and “Delilah” to his more current successes, including the surprise remake of Prince’s “Kiss.” Blended throughout are cross-generational collaborations with contemporary artists including Portishead, the Cardigans, and Sterophonics, proving Jones’s lasting crossover appeal.

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
This Greatest Hits differs from the slew of Tom Jones compilations available by including songs from his later career, a time he was messing about with contemporary pop artists. The fact that 1999's pop guest star-filled Reload failed to raise an eyebrow in America is a marketing faux pas of monolithic proportions, since it was so ultra-fantastic and ultra-fun. A good portion of it shows up here, and it makes for a whiplash-inducing listen when going from the jaunty chestnut "It's Not Unusual" into the so-2000 dance thump of "Sexbomb." Buy it for Grandma and she might be asking about guest stars the Art of Noise, Portishead, or the Stereophonics. All the pop guests work well with the swaggering one, and it's a relief to laugh with him rather than at him. A glance at the track list will tell you that most of required standards are here, but one wishes they would have included the great "Detroit City" to show his more soulful side. Avoid it if you don't want the later years when the innuendo and volume were turned up a tad, but it's the best way to get a quick overview of his hedonistic sly wink of a career.
