I'm a great fan of Santana, but this one is a bit cheeky. The "updated" version of Oye Como Va is painful, and Iron Lion Zion is not much better. A disappointing CD with little, if anything, new. A bit of a rip off, really. Don't bother with this one..!

It's a pity the virtuosity and artistic brilliance which once inspired John McLaughlin and Miles Davis, and gave to the world fusion classics such as `Caravanserai', `Welcome' and `Borboletta' is now reduced to this.

`Corazon' deploys the guest-star format adopted by so many artists in recent years (from Moby to Morcheeba to the late, great John Lee Hooker). The 12 songs each feature a different singer/guest artist: Samuel Rosa; Vincentico; Javany Xavier/Ximena Munoz; Romeo Santos; Ziggy Marley & Gloria Estefan (believe it or not, Gloria's contribution is one of the album's better moments), and others.

None of these songs are very memorable, let alone destined to be `classics'. The overall impression is of low-brow Latin-American pop music, punctuated with occasional moments of messy production and surprisingly harsh sound. `Oye 2014' is particularly excruciating: stick to the original `Oye Como Va', please.

Carlos is well into middle-age with his sharp edge blunted years ago, but his guitar licks remain unmistakable: if you heard any of these songs booming out of an open car window, the ID of the guitarist would be recognisable immediately. Unfortunately without Carlos' name and `brand' attached to this collection, it would be destined for immediate bargain-bin obscurity.

The packaging looks like a garish advertisement for a down-market Mexican restaurant: primary colours festooned with Aztec motifs in a (what looks like hallucinogen-inspired) 1970s pop art style.

Trying to be positive, a few of these numbers may play well in the salsa clubs and make good party music. Also on the plus side, proceeds from sales will go to the Milagro Foundation, Carlos's charity established in 1998 dedicated to the health and education of underprivileged children, so some small good may result from this depressing and unremarkable dross.

I have read some of the mixed Amazon reviews and hesitated a little before buying. I am an old Santana fan in all senses of the word but one that does not have an encyclopaedic knowledge of his work, although I probably do own most of them, but I do most certainly know that every time that I put on one of his albums it makes me smile and I feel great! This album from its first few chords for me ticks, circles and underlines those boxes. From the first note it could not be by anybody else, the new cooperation's are really refreshing and great, just let it waft over you and enjoy great music makers at their having fun. I feel it sadly pointless to judge everything against your old favourite tracks. They will always remain special but with Santana you have to go where he takes you and that is mostly to a better place. If you are a fan you must be open to the fact that as a musician of huge talent he will keep on producing new eventual classics. Buy this album. It worries me that I nearly let the oh so smart reviews talk me out of this treat. Already humming some of the refrains. Instant sunshine, nice touch of Marley.

Even though many of the tracks don't work as well as one might hope, there is much beauty and joy in the singing and in the musicianship on this album. Those 'fans' who have expressed their disappointment (even anger) in their Amazon reviews seem more focused on what they want from Carlos, rather than opening their ears and their hearts to what he has to offer.

Carlos' gift manifests itself in many different ways, often in the way he brings out the best in others, and nowhere is this more true than in the stand-out track Una Noche en Napoles, where his acoustic guitar simply frames the sublime vocal collaboration of Lila Downs, Nina Pastori and Soledad with subtlety and grace. Failing to notice this gem of a track means failing to appreciate how Carlos inspires those around him.

La Flaca and Iron Lion Zion are great songs in their original versions, but in both cases the collaborating artists on these new versions add something fresh and joyful; not 'better' than the originals, but incremental and respectful. In both cases, the singing and the playing are superb. In the case of Mal Bicho, I prefer this new version, and judging by the accompanying DVD (The making of Corazon) I suspect that Los Fabulosos Cadillacs may also acknowledge that their original has acquired another dimension with this new recording.

Amor Correspondido appears to be one of those formulaic, super-lightweight creations which old Santana fans love to hate, but it is undeniably sweetly-sung by Diego Torres, and the guitar and drums give it an edge and a passion which prevents it from descending into commercial pop oblivion. When executed so beautifully, formulaic pop songs can be very pleasing. But listen to it in Spanish, not the English version.

Hands up Santana makes me smile when he plays. Sure sometimes his guests do overpower things however this is still a great album - albeit that I would lose Oye 2014 (turbo revamps are never good), and the instrumental "I see your face" (uber-cheese). I would also lose "Feel It Coming Back" which is OK ish sung in English but is blown out the water by the Spanish version "Amor Correspondido" - different lyrics or at least adapted. Whatever the flow and sound makes a 5/10 song in English into a 9/10 one in Spanish weird eh? "Yo Soy La Luz" with Wayne shorter goes a bit sexy at the end - that was a surprise...probably was for Wayne as well. The absolute highlights are two songs written by Teofilo Chantre and sung by the big G herself, Gloria Estefan. Carlos - please make another Spanish album and steal Gloria to sing. As you can tell I strongly urge folk to by the Deluxe version because it includes two of the song I've mentioned. I suspect the Suits may have pulled a few strings to omit them from the standard release. Great production too. Anywho buy the Deluxe and wallow.
