1 stars This album is terrible! Using old scheme ( to produce m0ney, not music) Hancock tried to make pop-album ( in the manner of "Grammy" winner "Supernatural" of Santana). Still Tom Jones many years ago returned back to business using duets with modern popular artists release. Santana made trilogy based on that formula ( only first album was really interesting).

So, Hancock even ask Santana for help and recorded one song with Santana standard guitar solo ( and Anqelique Kidjo on vocal). But it didn't help - album is total disaster!

Santana has at least one thing that made his albums popular - his recognisible guitar solo. Pity, but Hancock didn't has that in his magic box.

From very first song you want just to push the "NEXT" button. And if duet with Santana is boring,but at least listenable, many songs are not listenable at all!

It's really strange, but the best album song is "A Song For You" - duet with Christina Aquiliera (!!!). Even Sting, Paul Simon and Annie Lennox absolutely didn't help!!

I can't recommend this album even for pop music lover. Just useless!!!
