Customer Review

on 14 September 2011
Kind of a 21st century version of Travelin' Wilburys this interesting project brings together 5 artists rooted in quite different areas. From superstar Mick Jagger to more 'alternative' third world musicians like Damian Marley and Indian composer A. R. Rahman.

What makes the record so succesful is actually the dominant role of Marley and Rahman. Marley's rhythm section provides a heavy reggae atmosphere through out while Rahman's elegant orchestrations add depth and beauty. Jagger is absolutely on top of his game while Dave Steward's always intelligent guitarplaying binds everything together. And even if Joss Stone might be struggling a bit to keep up with 'the guys' she provides the needed feminine touch.

Seems as if many people will love to hate this group but in fact it's a suprisingly artistic and un-commercial album. Filled with strong songs - although the obvious 'hit' might be missing - and an abundance of unusual ideas and arrangements. While in the long run this might only be a small footnote to the legend of The Rolling Stones it's actually a very creative and well executed experiment.
