I like Santana, and since it’s been a while since I’ve listened to him, I thought it be a good time to give him a listen. There’s such a good balance between instrumental songs and song with lyrics. And the album art is always so interesting!
Santana, his first album, is one of my favorites. Evil Ways and Soul Sacrifice are two of my favorite songs. It’s rare that I like every single song, but I think this is one of the very few things I can listen to all the way through. The entire album is worth a listen. The album art on this one is probably my least favorite.
From Abraxas, I like Singing Winds, Crying Beasts and Black Magic Woman/Gypsy Queen for my favorite songs. But I like pretty much every song…again, a rarity for me. The album art is really cool too.
Santana III: No One To Depend On is one of my favorite songs, as is Everybody’s Everything. Oh, and Everything’s Coming Our Way is also pretty good! While I don’t like it as much as Santana or Abbraxas, overall, it’s pretty good. The album art is really interesting.
Caravanserai is my least favorite. Nothing really stands out, and it sounds very different than the first three. The best way to describe it is abstract. But at least the album art is cool!
Borboletta: I think it might tie with Caravanserai as my least favorite album pf his that I have. Borboletta is really similar to Caravanersai, which might be why I don’t really care for it. It’s interesting, but there’s something very abstract about it. And like pretty much every other album, it has really cool album art.
That’s it for today, so have a great Monday!
