Overview 2003 was a busy year for Salvador, releasing two full albums and a live concert DVD. After taking home the Dove Award for ?Spanish Language Album Of The Year? for Con Poder in 2004, the group put its usual relentless touring schedule on hold to create their next English language studio records. The result, So Natural, is clearly this Austin, Texas band?s most compelling work to date ? a perfect bridge between the Latin-rock sound for which Salvador has become known, and a more soulful modern-rock vibe that?s a perfect fit for CHR radio.
Front man Nic Gonzales has never sounded better ? having co-written every song on the album and producing with frequent collaborator Chris Rodriguez.

This album is incredible, both music and lyrics. There is something for everyones mucical taste, from hard rock to soft ballad to traditional salsa, the band draws from various styles and yet does them in a way that appeals to anyone who loves music. And the lyrics......well, I haven't been so emotionally moved while listening to 'This is My Life' ever. I listen to alot of music, from Sting, Steely Dan, Green Day, Dave Mathews, Miles Davis...., and this is one of my favorite albums ever.
So Good Nov 3, 2006
My favorite CD and my favorite band, except for maybe Weird Al's new one.
Love this music! Aug 12, 2006
I heard Heaven on the radio and ran to my Christian music store to get it. Fortunately they didn't have this one. I bought the one they had (Into Motion) without hearing any songs and loved it. Finally found this one at the Unity Festival in Muskegon where Salvador played live tonight. I'm going to buy all their music and hope they come back to Unity again. (This was their second or third appearance.)
Even if you're not a Christian music fan I think you will like Salvador's So Natural if you like Santana or Gloria Estefan.
Lovin it 'Heaven' Jun 6, 2006
Great CD. I keep playing 'Heaven' over and over. I just discovered this song when I went to the WORD site recently. I took a chance on this CD because I liked 'Heaven'. To me it sounds a bit like Huey Lewis and the News. Great beat. Right now I'm listening to the rest of the album. I'm liking what I hear. Give it a listen and decide for yourself.
Awesome Christian Rock Jan 28, 2006
In the search for some quality Christian modern music, I came across Salvador when I heard their cover of "Heaven." These guys are fantastic! I thought I'd never find a band that was able to combine Christian themes with great, original music, but I finally found one. This is one of my favorite CD's in the past year. Not only do they have awesome musical chops, they also express their spirituality without sounding preachy -- their beliefs are very genuine and heartfelt. I love the Latin-tinged flavor of the songs. In short, if you're searching for good Christian music that rocks, you have found your salvation in Salvador.
