  • Summary: Why change a successful formula? Once again, the guitarist finds himself paired with a variety of all-star guests, including Michelle Branch, Joss Stone, Sean Paul, Aerosmith's Steven Tyler, Big Boi and Mary J. Blige.

  1. It's the hip-hop energy Mary J. Blige and OutKast's Big Boi bring to "My Man" that makes the most of the assembled talent by relying on musical inspiration rather than marquee power. [30 Oct 2005]
  2. Although none of the newcomers quite supply the killer touch, the flow of soft-rock shimmies and cowbell-driven R&B lives up to the guestlist's promise. [Dec 2005, p.156]
  3. Even Santana sounds bored, absentmindedly delivering Latin rock-influenced guitar licks behind a parade of stale melodies.
  4. A bland, friendly affair that disappears into the ether the moment it's finishing playing.
  5. 40
    The best you can say is that it's a great marketing ploy. [Dec 2005, p.112]
  6. 40
    The novelty of the all-star show has worn off, especially as the caliber of the all-stars has declined dramatically. [Nov 2005, p.140]
  7. Santana proves that even endless high-sustain soloing cannot heal the generically lame.
