Not So Superheavy
This may not be true, but I'm saying it anyway. This is the worst thing I've ever heard.
I'm saying it for two reasons.
One: it's a dumb idea.
Two: the record didn't surprise me. I didn't hit play and think after 5 songs, "Wow. This is really good!"
No. Superheavy sounds as dumb as I thought it would sound.
Factory-setting reggae beats. Mick Jagger doing his best (or worst) Jagger, over-enunciating in that painful, 1994 "Out Of Tears" voice or in that phony Jamaican lilt. Joss Stone vamping and moaning, mostly in the wrong key. Dave Stewart, a musical conundrum if there ever was one. Friends with everyone and I'm not sure why. The Eurythmics weren't that good. Look at his credits HERE. Unless having the distinction of producing mediocre records for some of your favorite stars is a good thing, I don't get Dave Stewart.
What's next? Superheavy 2? How about Roger Daltrey, Al. B. Sure, Shinehead, Lisa Lisa and Rupert Hine? That's a good idea, no?
