Although it isn't a concept album in the conventional sense, BORBOLETTA has the aesthetic and thematic continuity of one. Borboletta CD music The lyrical material deals with pop-sheened themes of spiritual and personal expansion, while the album's gorgeous jazz-spirited instrumentals make for more cerebral and challenging listening. The band seals a Brazilian fusion connection with the appearance of vocalist Flora Purim and rhythmist extraordinaire Airto Moreira, while soulman Leon Patillo and keyboardist Tom Coster make their first major appearances in the core Santana lineup.

||Haunting and Inspiring Beyond Cosmic|
I bought this album when it came out in 1974. It changed my life. Several years ago, I began playing guitar again. Seriously this time. Mysteriously, Santana's music on this album has played over and over in my mind even though I lost track of the album itself probably 25 years ago. My style of guitar playing now directly reflects the sounds, sensibilities, and cosmic feelings evoked by Borboletta. If you have experienced it, you know that music can take you places that words cannot describe. Borboletta for me, was this kind of experience, and I'm so pleased to have found the CD version and to have it to enjoy once again. It is best enjoyed in a very dark room on a great sound system.

||Excellent, One of Santanas Best|
Had bought cassette in the UK in 1976 when it first came out. Have been looking for CD in States ever since. Not as commercial as other Santana music, which makes it even better. One of my alltime favorites.

Another excellent cd by Santana.
By annecw (Philly, Pa.)
This record, with "Welcome" and "Caravanserai", comprise one of the most remarkable musical and spiritual journeys ever embarked upon by a "rock" musician. Challenged and pushed by some of the most talented and progressive musicians of the day, Santana puts his prodigious chops to use in the service of music that seems at once a spiritual quest and an invitation to boogie-til-ya-puke. Highlights, for me, are the haunting "Mirage" (check out the Echoplex) and the soaring, powerful "Fisherman". This was one of his most talented and tastiest bands ever.

||best album ever by c.s.|
it sounds like no other thing you have listened to. great percussion set never invading the scene. pop and latin are far away (god bless!..). very elegant and having something mysterious as you could feel walking barefoot through the amazon forest by night... everything can happen
