The Arista debut of Carlos Santana and band gives fans of the soulful guitar vet two albums in one, but it's a decidedly good-news, bad-news proposition. First, there's a fine collection of late-1990s-model Santana--tastefully tooled songs driven by Latin jazz and Afro-Cuban rhythms ("[Da Le] Taleo", "Africa Bamba", "Migra", "Primavera" and the emotionally charged instrumental "El Farol") that allow Carlos plenty of elbowroom for his passionate soloing. Then there's the collection of tracks featuring a lineup of de rigueur alternative and hip-hop stars, including Dave Matthews, Everlast, Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean and Eagle Eye Cherry. To their credit, Matthews ("Love of My Life") and Eagle Eye Cherry ("Wishing It Was") muster enough chemistry to make the fusion work. But the rest of the collaborations feel like an unnecessary stretch to reach out to a younger demographic that El Jefe has little trouble attracting on his own terms. --Jerry McCulley

if oyu like Santana and modern pop music then try this one.if all pop songs would sound like that i would be in sevent heaven
The 1999 album, Supernatural features acclaimed duets with some of the biggest acts in the music industry, like Rob Thomas of the group Matchbox 20, Eric Clapton, Everlast, and Dave Matthews. Although the songs are mostly in a foreign tongue, the acclaimed duets like Put Your Lights on with Everlast, Maria Maria, and Smooth, all became a huge part of Pop culture. Nobody could've ever imagined this in a lifetime, not even the "Corporate Pop" industry of acts like Britney Spears and NSYNC.
While many people think that is was a desperation act for Supernatural with all the artists teaming up with Santana, it became a real legacy to show off in place. It is just kind of sad that a lot of records can't shine like that in a lifetime. Yes, especially a record that has won 9 Grammys.
However, after quite a few plays, this is a very good album. In my opinion, it's not that groundbreaking, even though there are a bunch of outside contributors. No, it's just the band doing what it's been doing every since I've been buying records, and doing it very well. Yes, Santana's music often sounds like a beer commerical, and in this case "Smooth" really sounds like a beer commercial.
But take out the big single, and there's still a lot of good stuff here. One would think that after listening to Carlos Santana's guitarwork for almost thirty years, it would start sounding the same. I didn't have that problem here. There are plenty of songs that stretch out long enough to give his guitar a workout. If you like this, and I did, then this is a very good record. And the beer commercial is pretty good, too.
