All About Jazz
This is Santana‘s John Coltrane/A Love Supreme moment: creating transcendent, reverent, passionate music conceived and executed by a virtuoso artist without the slightest trace of concern for commercial considerations. […]

Rolling Stone
Conceptually, the album sprawls somewhat, due to the occasionally divergent pulls of its various inspirations. But Carlos’ devotion to the musical substance of the Coltrane legacy is admirableand he seems less inclined toward the superficial treatments which marred Love Devotion Surrender. […]
