Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

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

I've heard and read some cruel and unkind criticisms of this album. Perhaps it's because I'm an ignoramus when it comes to all the technical stuff - prepared to float along on the sound, knowing nothing more than whether I like it or not - but I just can't understand how anyone could not love this music. Can't remember how long I've been a Santana fan and find it astonishing after all these years, that he can still make the music that rocks me to the bone. The collaboration with other musicians (all of them) worked for me. I can't fault the album. Perhaps if I knew more I would be more critical. If so, I'm glad I don't know more because it's heaven to just listen to this music and enjoy it.

Being a convert of Santana since the early 80's with a vinyl album by the name of Moonflower I was interested to learn that Santana were to be on "top of the pops". It was on this occasion that I first heard Smooth from their Supernatural album. It just blew me away. I bought the album (1st time), found after many hours invested listening whilst in my car thought it was one of the best albums I've ever bought. On seperation from my partner it was one of the things she insisted on breaking, ( I then bought it again now the 2nd time). Had it stolen recently from my house and therefore am committed to buying it again, ( third time lucky). From the entire album there is only one track that even now I find hard to enjoy, it is the one featuring Lauryn Hill. Personally,I believe that on this occasion she was just along for the ride and didn't rise to challenge.However the rest of the album is worth the investment and time involved to get aquainted with it. If you buy this album and listen without judging by previous Santana albums I believe you will enjoy it and get extreme value for money. I feel I can make no better recommendation. :))

I have to agree with most of the comments noted by others here. This is an eclectic mix of styles, but it does really work - most of the time. 'Maria, Maria', 'Smooth' and the instrumental track are standouts,(even the Spanish stuff hits the spot!) most of the album being worth all the nomionations and praise which have been heaped on it. When I saw that there was Clapton track on here I was really looking forward to hearing it - and after having played the album chronologically, was up for it - the music and playing up to that point are excellant and moving. BUT! the Clapton track must've been recorded around the time of Eric's Pilgrim album, 'cause this track (The Calling) has all the bad things about that album all over it. It is a shame that such a fine offering from one of the worlds finest guitarist has to be spoiled by this offering from two of the worlds greatest guitarists. It's very formulaic and very OBVIOUSY backed by machines rather than humans. If you have the CD, just programme out the last track - sit back, close your eyes and ENJOY the rest of it!

A very good easy to listen to album. A new record company for this Woodstock survivor, new musical collaborations with Miss Hill and W. Jean etc and generally alot of hype to get this album in the charts, add a few awards won by the album and generally a very successful venture by the marketing men. Worst track on the album is the Clapton one, lets get two guitar legends, write a song not worthy to be covered by either one of them, and lets watch the money roll in.
Basically a very good introduction to Santana for Britany Spears fans. How about Santana fans? Better than Abraxas?, Moondance?, Caravansari?,Marathon? etc..... You've gotta be kidding! He deserves his awards but just not for this album.

Having previously known only one song from Santana (Black Magic Woman, as if you couldn't guess) I decided to buy this album after hearing Smooth ONCE - and I don't regret it. I agree with some of the reviews here that Eric Clapton's offering is a little disappointing (you can't really hear him); but this is due to the quality of the rest of the album. After listening to this album once I decided I wasn't keen on Da Le Yaleo - but then it grew on me. Smooth is definitely a stand-out track - but only one of eleven of them on the album! If you like punching beats, give Migra Migra a listen - this is competing with Smooth and Put Your Lights On as my favourite track on the album. However, the most amazing thing is the collaboration with Lauren Hill. Not as good as some of the other tracks, it is nevertheless the only Lauren Hill track I have ever been able to listen to more than half a bar of! Collaboration with so many artists could have been a real cop out and turn-off, but it isn't, so: well done Santana!

As a Santana fan of 30 years,who cut his teeth on Abraxas,marvelled at Caravanserai and has bought everything since,I can only say the Master is back! Carlos here is in excellent form and the only word for Supernatural is Superb! The vocals of the band and Carlos`s guitar in particular are almost spiritual at times.
All of the old masterful guitar and jungle percussion sounds are here and the album is unmistakably Santana. It would be easy at first glance of the content to be sceptical about the inclusion of artists such as Lauren Hill Dave Mathews and others, they dovetail well however with the music of Santana to produce some excellent songs, with Smooth being a UK number 1 in waiting.
So do yourself a favour,this is a classic Santana album,buy it and enjoy.
