Tracks, like the opening “(De Le) Yaleo,” prove that Santana remains supernaturally graceful without too much help from anyone. Who could begrudge such an enduring guitar god another big, star-studded shot at living la vida loca? […]

A.V. Club
Then there’s Santana’s Supernatural, perhaps the most popular LP of the ’90s that absolutely nobody cares about today. When Supernatural was released in the summer of 1999, the record industry was in midst of its “raging bacchanal before the fall of Rome” period. […]
