Fans old and new have much to celebrate about SUPERNATURAL, Carlos Santana's Arista Records debut. After several years of quiet in the studio, Santana is joined by his seasoned contemporary Eric Clapton and by such young luminaries as Lauryn Hill, Dave Matthews, Rob Thomas, and Fher (of famed Mexi-rockers Mana). As an album that caps a rock career spanning more than three decades, SUPERNATURAL is a testament to the stylistic breadth of Carlos' musical world, to his dynamic communicative abilities, and to the fact that rolling stones truly gather no moss. The man continues to make a guitar wail like no other.
To the sound of punchy horns, Rodney Holmes' double-bass drum kick, and of course, Santana's searing string-bending, "Yaleo" tears it up with abandon. "Migra" is another signature Santana 'Latin rock' piece with a pulsing Bo Diddley beat and a strong message about the U.S. immigration officers' harassment of Latinos. "Love Of My Life" is a sultry number with Matthews pouring sweetness all over the microphone, while "Do You Like The Way" features Hill dropping the light of her wisdom to slow, rough beats.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (7/8-22, p.144) - 3 1/2 Stars (out of 5) - "...Eclectic, lively and only occasionally goofy, SUPERNATURAL offers a glossy but winning context of musical fusion that highlights Santana's unique ability to make that guitar of his cry expressively..."
Entertainment Weekly (6/18/99, p.79) - "...Whether he's spraying lyrical notes over a soulful Lauryn Hill composition, trading molten licks with Clapton, or playing spacey blues with Everlast, Santana still has that old 'Black Magic Woman' thing goin' on..." - Rating: B
CMJ (1/10/00, p.23) - Included in CMJ's "Triple A '99 Top 5" - "...proves in 1999 that veteran rockers don't have to burn out or fade away....utilizing his unique salsa-blues-rock approach..."
Mojo (Publisher) (9/99, p.103) - "...easily the best place to hear this pleasantly inconsequential noise would be at a barbecue on a hot summer night, especially if you didn't want to disturb the neighbors."
Uncut (magazine) (p.102) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The signature guitar lines are supplemented by a posse of turn-of-millennium names..."
