In this week's slate of Rolling Stone reviews, Jon Dolan praises "Miracle Worker," the genre-smashing first single from Mick Jagger's new supergroup Superheavy, noting that it's "a summertime single built for every beach." Also, Monica Herrera is lukewarm on "Headlines," the first single from Drake's Take Care, which suffers from a slight hook and a beat that never takes off, and Evan Serpick pans the limp, Lex Luger-free new album from Southern rap titans Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
