Rolling Stone
Repeatedly, Carlos lays out charming and moving melodic lines as the music swells and climaxes to swell again. Like the Miles LP, it can be played from start to finish and probably should be, because, again, it is a whole composition in performance, with the bands between the tracks almost irrelevant. […]

Sea of Tranquility
My advice to you all, don’t walk, but run to your local CD shop and indulge yourself in this timeless classic. The remaster job is superb, with every instrument crisp and clearand you get a nice booklet that goes into the history behind the album. A must have! […]

The Absolute Sound
Perhaps the best- sounding track is “La Fuente del Ritmo,” where Carlos Santana’s staccato guitar jabs give way to a highly spatial approach, newcomer Tom Coster’s electric piano evokes McCoy Tyner. […]
