Tom Jones Praise and Blame

Tom Jones has been loosening knickers for half a century. Now he's back with a more“serious”album called Praise and Blame, but Jim and Greg wish he was still pushing the feel good hits. Following in the path of late career comebacks like Johnny Cash and Neil Diamond, Jones lends his baritone to classic blues and folk covers. The voice is still there, Jim admits, but with it none of the camp or smarm. Greg doesn't find these renditions authentic, and wishes Jones would just embrace his persona. Praise and Blame gets a double Trash It.
