Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.63) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Everybody sounds stoked -- the rhythm section drives guitarist Carlo Santana into simultaneously agitated and poised solos that sustain an elusive state of polyrhythmic bliss."

Rolling Stone (11/25/71, p.58) - "...This is music to dance to, but it is music that shrieks for more advanced, dextrous and imaginative dancing than some of the freeform body motion that rock dancing has accepted..."

Q (5/00, p.131) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Displays even more grace and power...[than their] fresh, fierce debut..."

Uncut (p.120) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[C]onsistent, refined and confident, with the core six-piece adding teenage guitar sensation Neal Schon to spar aggressively with Carlos Santana on the blistering 'Jungle Strut'."

Down Beat (p.91) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Showcasing solid original material and well-chosen covers, SANTANA III contains the perfect balance of flash and substance, grace and power, and mind and body."

Dirty Linen (p.83) - "The live set shows just how far the band had come since Woodstock....The entire set shows the band at the peak of their creative powers."

Musician (7/98, pp.86-88) - "...Sony Legacy's sonic wizards have made...[Santana's] first three albums reappear, each appended with additional live recordings....epochal explosive fusion of Hispanic-edged rock, Afro-Caribbean rhythms, and interstellar improvisation..."
