As A Founding Member Of Famed British Dance Act Faithless, Jamie Catto Has Produced Numerous Top Ten Hits Worldwide, With Two Albums Achieving Gold Status In The Uk Alone.

The Backbone Of The 1 Giant Leap Project Is Formed By Each Masterpiece Beginning With A Pre-Composed Backing Track Which Grows And Develops As New Layers Are Added.

Bridgeman Explains, We Have 15 Pieces Of Music We Travel With. What We Do Is Give Them Our Beat, Or A Piece Of Our Music, Something That Will Inspire Them. They All Have Radio Headphones; So They re Listening To Our Music. Then They Add Their Music And Sing Their Song. This Is From Every Country Across The World, Each Person Hearing In The Headphones What The Last Person Did. Every Country Across The World Equates To Over 50 Locations Visited Worldwide In The Production Of The Album.

Some Of The Collaborators Who Add Their Music And Sing Their Song Include Kd Lang, Michael Stipe, Alanis Morissette, Michael Franti, Carlos Santana, Stewart Copeland, Maxi Jazz, And Baba Maal Alongside African Tribal And Bedouin Musicians, Chinese Rappers, Gabonese Pygmies And Tuvan Throat Singers Masterfully Crafted Into A Truly Unique Musical Experience.

4-Years, 5 Continents And 50 Locations In The Making, What About Me? Sets Out To Capture The Immense Cultural Diversity Of The World We Live In, A Time Capsule Of Humanity At Its Most Inspirational. A Unique And Inspiring Musical Journey That Will Defy Any Pre-Conceptions That You Should Have Left Behind Before You Pressed Play.

Which makes this second all the more disappointing.
Dana Neal
I listen to this music whenever I need a lift as well as when I'm riding the bike, working outside in the yard, etc.
Linda Wooliever
Its a gorgeous album, as much a melange of styles as One Giant Leap.

Hard to follow up the first one, which I put in my top 10 for the last decade. This one is less focused, more scattershot. One major criticism - too many of the "songs" devolve into rapping. And whereas the 1st album had songs that would meander a bit, too many of the songs on this one make complete about-faces mid-song, sometimes more than once in the same song. It's too much of throwing the kitchen sink and everything else into one 9:00 piece instead of just letting a groove flow and grow, but maintaining some refrain throughout, or at least returning full circle at the end. Am I getting too esoteric. Well, it's hard to describe this wild collage of music.

But my main complaint is: too much rap. I mean, 80% of the world has never even heard rap, so it really plays a minor role in the bigger picture - but obviously not to the 2 producers here. And especially when you have so many beautiful voices at play - why lazily let someone rap right over every song?? It takes the mood right out of the Middle East or Asia or Africa and puts it right back in Brooklyn. That would be okay once or twice but not on ALL 20 songs. It just reeks of pandering to the rich, white liberal KCRW crowd.

Overall, this just isn't as satisfying a journey as the first album. Where the 1st one felt very organic, effortlessly blending its disparate parts, this feels overly-thought out or clumsy. Definitely check out the work of the individual artists on here, though - Krishna Das, Baaba Maal, Yungchen Lhamo are some of my personal faves.

This is truly an amazing CD! It is a must for any world music lover.
Just start with the way it was created: someone wrote a few simple musical tracks and the film crew (2 brilliant dudes)travelled around the world looking for talented musicians, with an interest in the universal theme of human consciousness and evolution. Every time, a musician added his or her layer over the previous one, organically creating a stunning set of songs, where no one musician was more important than the other, all harmoniously joining together. Since all music is essentially a prayer, it makes sense to be listening to music that is grounded in genuine respect for all, cooperation, deep love for life and our inherent beauty.

This CD is so exquisitely woven, musically, thematically, visually (if you have seen the DVD). It combines brilliant musical talents, a vibrant tapestry of voices, instruments, photography, wisdom, telling the story of our common humanity and budding awareness of our divinity in sounds and images.

NOTE: I would watch the movie before listening to the music as some of the narrative is embedded at the beginning of many songs and it will help you better understand and enjoy the musical journey!

Truly transformational!

I enjoyed the first album a great deal. In fact, it's one of my favorites of all time. Which makes this second all the more disappointing.

I concur with the other reviewers, namely that there's far too much rap influence. Even worse, most of the songs are accompanied by talking in the form of New Age dribble. Just shut up and sing already.

Only one song redeems this as being a total failure and earning it a single star rating, "I've seen trouble." Awesome. Buy the single.

The DVD is not viewable on most American DVD players, so I happen to have a new laptop, so I set the region (which one can do only once) for Asia, and was able to watch it - the music rocks, it is sooooo good, but I wish I could watch it on my TV

I had to watch this movie for a class I was taking. The funky world music instantly lifted me up about 10 notches. I listen to this music whenever I need a lift as well as when I'm riding the bike, working outside in the yard, etc. I can't say enough good things. It's as if men and women got connected through voice and instruments all around the globe. Some names you'll recognize like Michael Stipe, Michael Franti and Santana and some names will be new. All will be enjoyed.
