Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
To say that guitar guru Carlos Santana got a huge career boost from Supernatural, his 1999 album of genre-spanning collaborations, is an understatement: The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer reached a whole new audience with the multiplatinum-selling, Grammy-laden album, which paired him with Rob Thomas, Dave Matthews, Wyclef Jean, and the like. Given Supernatural's magnetic charm, it's no surprise that Santana applies a similar formula to his much-anticipated follow-up. And while the going isn't always "Smooth," this shaman pulls it off. Even with a somewhat more uneven guest list, Shaman dazzles with tantalizing moments. "Feels like Fire," which sets Santana's hypnotic ...

To say that guitar guru Carlos Santana got a huge career boost from Supernatural, his 1999 album of genre-spanning collaborations, is an understatement: The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer reached a whole new audience with the multiplatinum-selling, Grammy-laden album, which paired him with Rob Thomas, Dave Matthews, Wyclef Jean, and the like. Given Supernatural's magnetic charm, it's no surprise that Santana applies a similar formula to his much-anticipated follow-up. And while the going isn't always "Smooth," this shaman pulls it off. Even with a somewhat more uneven guest list, Shaman dazzles with tantalizing moments. "Feels like Fire," which sets Santana's hypnotic playing against the almost hymnlike vocals of Dido, is nothing short of stunning, and the easygoing, horn-pumped "The Game of Love," with teen rocker Michelle Branch, suggests a South of the Border Sheryl Crow. Likewise, Seal's slithery singing perfectly matches the soulful lines that Santana unspools for "You Are My Kind." The chemistry is less successful when the guitarist joins forces with the new generation of hard rockers: He all but disappears amid the bluster of P.O.D.'s "America," while Nickelback's Chad Kroeger proves entirely unsympathetic on the grandiose "Why Don't You and I?" Those rough patches, however, are offset by a passel of sexy mid-tempo tracks, such as the serpentine "Amore Sexo," which boasts one of Macy Gray's typically showstopping vocal turns. Equally interesting are the tunes that delve into Santana's Latin heritage, from the light and airy "Hoy Es Adios," with vocals by Alejandro Lerner, to the tough-talking "One of These Days," on which he's joined by the members of Ozomatli. Once again, this six-string sage proves his mettle at spell-casting, dreamweaving, and, above all, hit-making.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Nobody could have predicted the success of the star-studded Supernatural in 1999, but it revitalized the career of Santana, plus Clive Davis, who cooked up the whole idea of the comeback in the first place. Given its blockbuster status, a sequel that followed the same blueprint was inevitable, which is exactly what 2002's Shaman is. If anything, there's even less Carlos Santana here, proving that he and Davis are among those that believe that Supernatural was a success because of Rob Thomas and "Smooth," not the typically tasteful, excellent guitar playing. And, no surprise, Thomas has a strong presence here even if he doesn't sing. He writes two songs, flexing his muscles as a neo-soul songwriter not badly, either, on cuts sung by Musiq and Seal, and providing the template for all the guests here: they want to launch a new stage of their career, finding a wider audience. Outside of Seal who has a comeback of his own to launch and Placido Domingo who does these things because he can, everybody here has hearts to win and something to prove, and they do a mixed job of it. P.O.D. falls on its face with the embarrassing "America," but Chad Kroeger far outshines anything he's done with a surprisingly subtle and soulful "Why Don't You & I," easily better than anything by Nickelback. But this points out the problem on the record -- each song is tailored to the strengths of the lead singer, not the strengths of Santana, who's left with piddly, forgettable instrumental interludes and playing endless lines beneath the vocal melodies. Who can blame him? It's the only chance he really gets to play on this album. On the whole, it holds together no better or no worse than Supernatural -- it's the same record, essentially. True, there wasn't anything as awful as "America" or the foolish aural press release "Since Supernatural," but there was nothing as joyous and wonderful as the Michelle Branch-sung "The Game of Love." Written by the team behind the New Radicals' modern pop classic "You Get What You Give," it's every bit as soaring melodic and irresistible; it may not be Santana -- it sounds even less like Santana than "Smooth" -- but it's perfect pop, the best pop single of 2002, for reasons that have nothing to do with Santana.

    Highly recommend

    Carlos lend his flair in melding with other artist to bring us cross generational music. His Latin roots colored with newer artist introduces a breath of fresh air, in comparison to some of the newer stale offerings. Nothin redundant here, just good "ole fashioned tunes"

    The aura that is uiniquely Santana

    I love that the experience and musical brilliance of Santana is being paired with great new artists who have so much diversity and so much to give with their music. The initial decision to pair Santana with Rob Thomas for "Smooth" in "Supernatural" (the cd Santana released before "Shaman") was such a great gift. You might wonder if another similarly conceived album would be a cheap imitiation or just another sequel to capitolize on a hit. I think the opposite is true - I think in "Shaman" Santana perfected the art of duets and they each sound fresh and new - Michelle Branch, Macy Gray, Dido, Seal and Placido Domingo (!) all share great tracks with Santana that easily compliment each other in such an interesting and refreshing way. Every track is a little more interesting than the next and all of them whether duets or not have a spiritual humilty to them that has the unique aura of Santana. There is so much richness in this cd and it's been out for a long time but it's still a favorite in my cd magazine. This cd demonstrates that an artist like Santana can continue to evolve, find new audiences and still maintain a connection to his individual style.

    The more you listen, the more you like it

    I first heard the CD when it was released; and did not really like it at all. However, I was forced to listen to it in my week in and week out UAL flights; and this CD really makes my 5 hour flight a joy. I really enjoy listening to the CD over and over again; and each track is a gem. Clive and Santana have created another album for the ages.

    Listen and Learn

    The more you listen to this music the more you understand the meaning of artistic expression. The legendary Santana licks are all there and thanks to his brilliance in working with a rainbow collection of musicians the music is always fresh and interesting. The musical and creative genius shows and contributes to the living legend of Santana.

    Since Supernatural

    Nothing's changed. And why fix what isn't broken? Like Supernatural, other artists lend their material to be interpreted with Carlos' brilliance and flair. This is a fun record with every one of the 16 songs a keeper. Even Carlos, who can tend to be too heavenly minded at times, lightens up on the playful "Foo Foo". "The Game of Love" will undoubtedly get killed on adult contemporary radio; however, it is a contagious song nonetheless. The problem is that the other great songs on this CD may get lost in the shuffle. "Hoy es Adios" is so beautiful that it is the track I play most often despite the fact I don't speak Spanish (Foo Foo). Carlos continues to improve his expressive and distinctive solos. He can rock, he can hip-hop, and he can salsa. The downside - no lyrics in the CD package.

    Carlos Santana's Shaman

    With his latest release, Shaman, Carlos Santana has once again proven that he can compliment any type of music. As with Supernatural, Shaman is less a Santana album than a collection of various artists, each collaborating with one of the greatest guitarists of all time. There's a much wider variety of musical genres explored on Shaman than on Supernatural. There's the usual pop oriented tracks such as "The Game of Love", featuring Michelle Branch, "Feels like Fire" with Dido and "You Are My Kind" with Seal. All of which are sure to please the critics and fans alike. He has thrown in a few tracks that are obviously his own, and even a track with opera star Placido Domingo. There is one track on the album that the critics just can't seem to stomach. Unanimously, the critics have shredded "America", featuring the rap-metal band P.O.D. I disagree. While I will admit that "America" is essentially a P.O.D. song, Santana gives the song a bluesy feel that compliments it quite well. It may not be Santana's best effort, but it's a good song nonetheless. I would recommend Shaman to anyone who liked Supernatural. It's one of the best albums to be released this year.
