Rahman and reggae star Damian Marley to form a band cooperative project called SuperHeavy. This diverse and eclectic line up who share eleven Grammy Awards between them, have been recording together in various studios around the world, with the majority of the tracks on the project laid down over three weeks in Los Angeles earlier this year. Tracks include the first single "Miracle Worker".

Format: Audio CD
Confused? I don't blame you. This is an eclectic, high-energy fusion of voices and instruments by the Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger, neo-soul singer Joss Stone, reggae toaster Damian Marley (son of Bob Marley), "Slumdog Millionaire" composer A. R. Rahman, and Eurythmics cofounder Dave Stewart, who also acts as producer. With three British performers and two from the former colonies of Jamaica and India, it's very much a Commonwealth supergroup.

They come together to create a hard-driving, deep-grooving sonic experiment, one I find both intriguing and rewarding. But the album doesn't alternate between genres; every song is a mélange of rock guitars and drums, soul and reggae vocals and bass, and Bollywood production, with each singer taking turns. Instruments as diverse as violin, piano, harmonica, organ, synthesizer, and tabla join in to create a broad palette of sound. There's even a song in Hindi.

Jagger's vocals dominate the proceedings. He often sings lead, while Stone duets with him and Marley, who contributes regular reggae interludes. The thick, complex orchestrations by Rahman and Stewart change tone with every track. If there's any complaint to be made, it's that there's too much in the mix. Each song is a five-course meal.

If you come to this project with expectations raised by any one of the prominent names attached to it, you're bound to be disappointed. This ain't the Stones, though particular songs may remind you of them, nor is it a rock or reggae or soul album. My advice: trust the professionals. Let them take control and you'll find yourself drawn further and further into the music.

There are two versions of the CD. The deluxe edition with a black-and-white cover features four additional tracks -- over 15 extra minutes of music including another Hindi song -- all of which make worthy additions and more than justify a slightly higher price.

Some times a "super group" looks better on paper than it ends up being in the studio. Such is the case with Superheavy, a new group featuring Mick Jagger, Dave Stewart, Joss Stone, Damian Marley and A.R. Rahman, that actually ends up being rather light weight and run of the mill.
Where do I begin? With the now-almost-embarrassing quality of Jagger's voice? Maybe the total and utter waste of Stone?? Or how about the boarder-line karaoke/cartoonish feel of Marley's "rasta" vibe???
We could also talk about the routine arrangements, the lackluster instrumentation or the rather spotty (and, in some cases, downright creepy!) lyrics. All in all, it's pretty safe to say that most of this disc just doesn't work.
SUPERHEAVY opens with....."Superheavy." The song has a nice enough groove, with a slightly Third World vibe to it. However, the track is marred by a group of vocals that are all over the map, ranging from Marley's slurred, incoherent words to Jagger's flat ones, while Stone comes across shrill and grating. NOT an auspicious start!
"Unbelievable" is an even bigger mess. This track is proof positive of why the Stones haven't made a new album in ages....Jagger's voice is shot, a shadow of it's former self, while Stone is nothing more than window dressing. Add in Marley's sophomoric vocal, a lackluster arrangement and silly lyrics and you have the first of many missteps.
"Miracle Worker" works when Stone and Marley are front and center, but things get a little creepy and leering when Jagger takes center stage ("There's nothing wrong with you that I can't fix/I come a runnin' with my little bag of tricks"....REALLY???). The arrangement is easy-going and relaxed, and Stone just shines, so I guess we'll call this one a draw.
"Energy" is just that...

Excellent eclectic mix of music with the ryhthm section playing a roots reggae base, with creative lyrics and vocals. No category for the music, much like 'Distant Relatives' by Damian Marley and Nas, it is a new sound that features the best of each artist. Great record for people tired of the same old sounds and looking for something new and refreshing. I liked it on the very first listen, which is rare these days!!!

Wow...was really looking forward to this release and was really disappointed. Love the individual artists, but together, it is an abomination. Damian Marley is kind of the element that doesn't quite fit in. Giving every song a reggae vibe just because of Marley's involvement is an odd choice.

This sounds like a lame "We are the World"/Band Aid kind of creation. Artists with styles that don't mesh trying hard to create something together. I don't like it and I don't recommend. I think people who seem to like this mess are trying too hard to like it because they like the individuals.

The sad fact about supergroups is that they are rarely the result of any musical imperative.
This is painfully confirmed on the debut offering from the alliance of Mick Jagger, Dave Stewart, Joss Stone, Damian Marley and A R Rahman, on which the assembled talents cast around for a style of their own without ever unearthing the natural chemistry on which great bands rely.
There are shades of prancing electro-reggae pop, a smidgeon of country-ballad blues, an unconvincing angry rocker, and several pan-cultural stews, such as "Unbelievable" and "Satyameva Jayathe", in which the contrasting flavours don't gel in tasty fashion.
The impression is that all participants are having to work at less than full power in order to accommodate the others; and, as chemistry goes, the hoped-for "crazy energy" between Jagger and Stone just doesn't heat up at all. A. Gill

Best tracks: "Never Gonna Change"; "I Don't Mind"
