Dave Stewart, Damian Marley, Joss Stone, Mick Jagger and AR Rahman.

This is the album and group inspired by Dave Stewart hearing local sound systems rolling over the hillsides outside his Jamaican home. Along for the ride are Mick Jagger, young siren Joss Stone, Damian Son of Bob Marley and AR Slumdog Millionaire Rahman.
SuperHeavys Jamaican origins make a strong impression, but the obligation to include a segment from each of the players appears laboured.
Still, One Day One Night hits a more seamless groove than the hodge-podge offered on the track Energy, while Never Gonna Change has Jagger delivering a waspish putdown of the sort hes been polishing off since the 60s. Elsewhere, he has a carpet chewing contest with Stone on the queasy duet I Dont Mind, and I Cant Take It No More is one of Micks perennial attempts to strike a relevant political pose. But its done in a leaden, heavy-handed fashion that ill serves the subject matter and is typical of the album overall.
