  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. He smartly revisits songs from Bruce Springsteen ('The Hitter') and, for those who miss the raw, hungry Jones, he delivers a roaring rendition of Tommy James & the Shondell's 'I'm Alive.'
  3. 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.

    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. Mojo

    It's at once plush and anodyne, both insatiable and confined. [Dec 2008, p.100]
  6. Uncut

    This is a "Talk Of the Town" of the mind, and he is clearly in his elemnt. [Dec 2008, p.100
  7. They include brassy belters of the style that Mark Ronson has brought back into fashion, ugly stabs at funk and a cover of Bruce Springsteen's boxing classic, The Hitter, that is more Joe the Plumber than Joe Calzaghe. The ballads, however, offer richer pickings.
