"Putumayo gets into duet craze.Has the haunting Ethiopian/Israeli fusion Idan Raichel Project,an electrifying duet between rai star Cheb Mami&Ziggy Marley,along with Youssou N'Dour&Alan Stivell's great "United Earth I." Essential for any world music collection!"
"The ubiquitous Black-Eyed Peas collaborate with Brazilian great Sergio Mendes for Starbucks-friendly hip-hop.John Legend&India.Arie provide great vocals,but Justin Timberlake does not bring sexy back to already sexy Brazilian music."
"Bubbly's real-life girlfriend Emily Blunt coos at the end of "Me&Mrs.Jones." Talented Brazilian guitarist Ivan Lins is in the bossa nova take on Eric Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight." Boyz II Men are relegated to the sidelines as well."
"The West African diva has electrifying collaborations with the Malian duo Amadou and Mariam,Peter Gabriel,Alicia Keys,and Branford Marsalis.She also does an amazing cover of the Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter" with Joss Stone."
"Country superstar Reba McEntire teams up with fellow country stars Kenny Chesney,Vince Gill,Faith Hill,LeAnn Rimes,Rascal Flatts&Trisha Yearwood.She also collaborates with American Idol Kelly Clarkson and "sexyback" Justin Timberlake."
"Country diva covers classics like "Imagine" and "Crimson and Clover" with high-profile singers such as Kris Kristofferson,Nickel Creek, Norah Jones,Judy Collins,Alison Kraus,and Yusuf Islam (the former Cat Stevens)"
"An awful duet between the talented Latin rocker Carlos Santana&the talentless hack,Nickelback's frontman Chad Kroeger. It was "previously unreleased" before "Ultimate Santana" came out.Should've remained unreleased."
"Has a few classics from Carlos Santana's early Woodstock/Monterey Pop days. Most of the songs are from his Trifecta of Torment duet album days,like the "previously unreleased" duets with J.Lo and Nickelback's Chad Kroeger...which should've stayed stowed in the vault."
