Holland has described his music as big band blues, and that's an apt description for a good deal of the songs, whether it's Sting's "Seventh Son," Taj Mahal's "Outskirts of Town," or Morrison's "Back o' Town Blues. That doesn't necessarily count as a strike against the record, it just makes the groove less consistent. There is a consistent, hepped-up party mood, though one that's unrelenting yet slick enough so that it's rather like a party that tries too hard to succeed and goes on too long.
Certainly it will attract the most attention for George Harrison's "Horse to the Water," his last recording done shortly before his death in late Harrison was a great musician, but this is not a great or good track; the song isn't Tramvay - Various - Shtetl Superstars - Funky Jewish Sounds From Around The World, and his voice, unfortunately, sounds like it's in faltering shape.
For the most part it's amiable and unmemorable, hitting its finest note on Steve Winwood's "I'm Ready," in which he or someone, the part is not detailed in the credits rips out some organ work straight from the spirit of his Spencer Davis Group days. The ska cuts by Suggs and Jamiroquai actually make for a nice change of pace from the grand blues strutting.
