...with Chris Cornell on vocals.
I liked it, quite a bit.
I like it
Doesn't do much for me.. Not Carlos' style
Two things turn me off on this. First, it's just too fast, there's some swing to the original this one blows through. Second, too nicely finished. It should feel dirty.
Now I do like his cover of "Sunshine of Your Love" w/Rob Thomas. The drums are more exotic and it has a new feel.
That's one of things I liked about it. I thought, "this is Carlos?!"
I like the album as a whole - I was pleasantly surprised by several of the tracks. I can't seem to get past the tempo on Whole Lotta Love, though.
I like the vocals. The solo, not so much.
I do need to hear it again, I only heard it the one time. Perhaps I'm being premature.
I was grinding metal (literally) in the garage, so I was in the mood to be rocked, and it came on.
I remember thinking the solo was a nice tip of the hat to multiple Jimmy versions, not just a wank. It sounded like he did a little homework.
The vocals are great
Chris did a great job. I don't care much for the rest of the arrangement though, either tonally or rhythmically. They took the swing and swagger out.
Finally heard this....
I'm a fan of both Santana and Cornell, in the right setting. Cornell acquits himself pretty well on this track, but I thought Carlos' soloing was very boring. Not an interesting take on the song.
This song was the deciding factor in me buying the CD.
Yeah, Santana took all the sex out of it. Totally sterile guitar and groove. Cornell sounds killer, but even he sounds like he's struggling with the weirdo tempo and lack of strut and swagger, makes the vocal phrasing awkward.
OH yeah, that's good stuff.
Vocals are amazing, but that's to be expected. Anyone else get distracted, and kind of annoyed, with the leading guitar playing over the top of everything? Also, it seemed way too fast.
Cornell sounds great on this! I'm not normally a fan of his singing but he rocked it.
The rest of it was not my bag at all. Too frantic.
how could anyone criticize this. i dont get it. had a great rockin groove. great vocals, adequate guitar, its a rock song remember? how could they possibly improve anymore on this tune? cornell should be playing with bonamassa or something, but, i will take this anyday. fine speed for me,,,and i'm old
I respect Carlos and the fact that he's still releasing music at his age BUT:
take away Chris Cornell
and take away the killer song written by rock royalty and whatcha got ??
pentatonic noodling...and a wah wah
