Beyond Appearances

Beyond Appearances is an album by Santana, released in 1985 (see 1985 in music).

The album took seven months to make, and (apart from Carlos Santana himself) involved a completely different line-up from Santana's previous album (released two and a half years earlier). It was firmly in the style of the 1980s, making much use of synthesizers and drum machines. Beyond Appearances performed relatively poorly, reaching only fifty on the Billboard 200 album chart; one of its tracks, "Say It Again", reached forty-six on the Billboard Hot 100 single chart (though it did better on the "Mainstream Rock" chart, reaching fifteen).
