  1. A return to what Jones does best: Stax-inspired soul-rock showpieces, brassy ballads, and an emphasis on the massive voice itself, which hasn't dissipated a scintilla since 1964.
  2. Jones roars out of the box with Tommy James & the Shondells' 'I'm Alive,' a sweat-soaked jumpsuit of a song thick with fierce maleness.
  3. 68-year-old lothario goes back to his white soul roots with a passionate performance showing that Jones still has "it."
  4. This is an unusually sentimental record, co-written by the man himself, in which many songs bravely cast him as the old man he is. [Jan 2009, p.118]
  5. 60
    It's at once plush and anodyne, both insatiable and confined. [Dec 2008, p.100]
  6. 60
    This is a "Talk Of the Town" of the mind, and he is clearly in his elemnt. [Dec 2008, p.100
  7. Reflections on love, life and 'the wife' abound as horns parp Ronson-ly. But only Sixties cover 'I'm Alive' soars.
