TINA TURNER Twenty Four Seven (1999 UK 11-track CD album picture sleeve. Includes the singles When The Heartache Is Over and Whatever You Need)
Aged 61 when this album was released, Twenty Four Seven manages to ooze with both youth and class. Influenced by contemporary club culture, the songs range from the "Believe" sound-alike track "When The Heartache Is Over" (which incidentally was produced by Brian Rawlings, the man behind the Cher hit) to the Shania Twain country-pop style title track "Twenty Four Seven". Although there are a couple of ballads ("Talk To My Heart" and "Falling"), Turner seems to have left the diva crooning for the likes of Celine Dion. Tracks such as the opener "Whatever You Need" prove that she still has more than enough energy: she's not a frazzled old disco grandma. --John Galilee

On this latest project Tina seems to be going the Cher route, entering into more dance/pop material. The opening track, Whatever You Want is an uplifting tune, that was only released as a single in Europe. The highlight of the album is When the Heartache is Over. The lyrics are some what autobiographical. The only single released in America from the album, Heartache peaked at a disapointing #51. The song could have been a world wide smash had it had some kind of publicity.
Absolutly nothing's Changed is one of those get back at your man songs. Talk To My Heart is a nice ballad that Tina dedicated to her mother who died right before the album was released. One of the best rock numbers is Go Ahead, which was written and produced by 80's rocker, and former Tina duet partner, Bryan Adams. Another favorite track is Go Ahead. With lyrics like "You see my smiling, but you paint an ugly face. Everything you do is all about the chase", its a brilliantly written song. The final, & title track is 24/7. Another highlight with great energy by Tina.
A month after the albums release in America, Tina set out on her 100 date farewell concert tour. The tour broke records all across the world and became the biggest money maker of 2000. All though it was her last tour, rest assure this wont be her last piece of music. At least I hope not.
This is Tina Turner shining on her best moment over, over all over again making the listener begging for what is to come and for more Tina!
This is a 10 Star CD in my book and can not get enough. Buy this CD. It belongs on the Billboard charts with a slew on top 10 hits.
This CD has something for everyone to love..
Cher, Madonna grooves mixed with the return of the classic Tina Turner that makes her shine at every given moment! It was so wonderful to hear bring the vocal strength back into her latest jem of what made her what she is today..
Soulful power, glissful overtones to bring back every Tina Turner memory come back in a very split second making yout hair raise from happiness.
One again, If you don't have this one in your collecton. You are really missing out as this CD is one of best out right now and is a diamond in a world of jems that can never be replaced.
Buy it, Love it and let it brighten your world as it did mine!!
Cannot wait until Tina Turners next realease. She is a like a fine wine.. She only gets better with age. I hope the up and coming singer will learn a thing or two waht Tina has to offer. If so the moment will not lose it strength of musicianship and emotional bliss.
Tina.. You must have an Angel on your shoulder (You sure sing like one)
Tina Turner is one of the most important figures in the music industry and every work that she releases has a first class production.
"24/7" is her second new album in ten years ("What's love got to do with it (1993) and "Simply the best" (1991) weren't new studio albums). This time she chose Cher's producer from her multi-million album "Believe", it also features a never released song from the Bee Gees ("I'll be there"), there's a song with a special appereance of Bryam Adams ("Without you").
The first song ("Whatever you need") is a fantastic gospel where features the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the forth song ("Absolutely nothing's changed") was written by Terry Britten, the writer of "What's love got to do wwith it" and other hits.
The album goes from soft ballads to rock songs.
Tina's voice is wonderful as always and I can say that it's a pleasure listening to this album, you'll never get tired of it.
The album was a hit, the critics were very good, the first single was a #1 hit in Europe and the album sold 3 million copies world-wide, reaching #1 in several territories in Europe and #21 in Billboard's Top 200 Albums.
Expectations were real high, especially after i listened to the first single WHEN THE HEARTACHE IS OVER.
Great production and new sounds by Metro.
Looked like the woman was about the hit back big time in the charts as Cher did.
So i grab my copy down at the local Virgin megastore, get back home, put it on and....
And disaster struck.
Yeah, ok, the album is not that bad, although she might have relied heavier on the Metro formula....
But the Bryan Adams featured vocals in a tune and The Bee Gees writing another don't actually make up for a winning album.
Maybe it was my fault expecting a clone of Cher's cd.
Fact is there is nothing much that has me putting this back on these days.
DON'T LEAVE ME THIS WAY (another Metro production) is a nice ballad, TALK TO MY HEART is cool as much as ALL THE WOMAN.
Question is: where has the rocking Tina everyone knows gone?
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING'S CHANGED and GO ON are semi-rock tunes...but they are a far cry from Tina's old rock catalogue.
Maybe Tina needs to take a break, and decide what to come up with next time.
A whole Metro-oriented album would be my best bet for her next successful step.
