I honestly had never even heard of Santana when this album was released. I still have never listened to anything else he’s done. I bought the album based on the singles where he’s just playing guitar while a current star was singing, but it makes the countdown due to his songs that I don’t understand most of the words to.
Put Your Lights On is my favorite track, a pretty haunting tune. I’m also a fan of the overplayed Smooth and the overplayed Maria Maria. The rest of the collaborations I can take or leave, especially Lauryn Hill’s. Santana and rap just don’t mix. And while Clapton’s guitar playing is pretty sweet, I’m not a fan of the chanting in his song.
I enjoy all of Santana’s singles. My favorite is probably Africa Bamba, though it competes with Yaleo and Corazon Espinado. His voice is nothing special, but his songs here are quite relaxing and are a nice break from the sometimes overproduced singles.
