Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Martin Johnson
Mixing a divorc?e's world-weary savvy with the unbridled passion of a young woman moving into her first apartment, Tina Turner is one of the world's marvels. Although she sings every note as if her next meal depended on it, her records generally fly or die on song selection and production. Her latest, TWENTY FOUR SEVEN, features excellent choices in both departments and recalls the slick blend of pop-soul that made PRIVATE DANCER one of the great comeback albums in history. The expert production of Brian Rawling and Mark Taylor -- the team that crafted Cher's recent comeback hit, "Believe" -- is featured on the first single, "Whatever You Need," and on "When the ...

Barnes & Noble - Martin Johnson
Mixing a divorcée's world-weary savvy with the unbridled passion of a young woman moving into her first apartment, Tina Turner is one of the world's marvels. Although she sings every note as if her next meal depended on it, her records generally fly or die on song selection and production. Her latest, TWENTY FOUR SEVEN, features excellent choices in both departments and recalls the slick blend of pop-soul that made PRIVATE DANCER one of the great comeback albums in history. The expert production of Brian Rawling and Mark Taylor -- the team that crafted Cher's recent comeback hit, "Believe" -- is featured on the first single, "Whatever You Need," and on "When the Heartache Is Over," an "I Will Survive" for the new millennium. The title track, written and produced by longtime collaborator Terry Britten, echoes the rock-'n'-roll glory of "Nutbush City Limits" from early Ike and Tina days. And with a chorus that proclaims "I'm bruised but I ain't broken," "Absolutely Nothing's Changed" is the most affecting song on TWENTY FOUR SEVEN. Its driving beat and smiling survivor's tale capture so much of what is vital and utterly irreplaceable about Ms. Tina.
All Music Guide - Mark Morgenstein
The album is actually credited to just Tina, and no one has earned the right to a single moniker more than the former Mrs. Turner. Now over 60, Tina has picked a suite of songs about survival, a topic she knows well, and imbued them with as much soul as she can muster. Tina still puts Mariah Carey and Celine Dion to shame. But unfortunately, on Twenty Four Seven, the famous Turner passion is often submerged in glossy production that virtually defines "adult contemporary." In some transcendent moments, Tina reminds us of the woman who sang "River Deep, Mountain High" -- like when she spits out "I've never been a winner but I still play the game" in "All the Woman," or during the powerful coda to "I Will Be There." As Tina sings in "Absolutely Nothing's Changed," she's lived to fight another day, and that's proof she ain't been broken.

    Tina Is Simply The Best

    Beside the fact that everything Tina does is above and beyond superb, this album has got to be one of the best she has ever done. Unfortunately it is her last since she has, at 61, retired. But none-the-less, we have so many memories and musical phenomenons from her that should last most of us the rest of our lifetime. Thank you Tina for this beautiful album and thank you Roger Davies for getting her where she got to. I love you Tina!!

    It's the Usual.... JUST GREAT !!!!

    When you have a performer like Tina Turner you forget just how talented she is until she comes out with yet another hit CD. I liked all but a couple of the tracks on this CD. Which is really good for me.... I tend to find myself listening to it while at work but don't mistakenly think this is soft background music. If you know Tina at all you know that can't be true. So try this latest, you won't be disappointed.

    good to listen to but sounds familiar

    This is certainly aTina turner style album.Her clever ability to sing the full range of notes without straining her voice is still there.Indeed, the sound of her voice, to me is timeless.However,because of this,it does sound very simular to past songs.

    A Crafty Pop Dance album from TINA

    The amount of credit to be given to TINA TURNER is never enough, from her humble beginnings in Nutbush, a rewarding yet disastrous partnership with Ike Turner, to the ultimate comeback in the 80s. This new album sees TINA going ahead in yet another milestone in her recording career as well as a performer. Chic production sound and melodious European tunes are what you can expect from this exqusite polished album. The Bee Gees, Bryan Adams and Terry Britten (what's love got to do with it) rendered very impressive tunes as well as new pop dancy tunes to keep you going for the day by very current producers Metro (Believe - Cher). A woman who spans her career across 4 decades and now heading into the Millennium - simply awesome, nevertheless, always The Very Best. A feel good album for any occasion.
