Rolling Stone
Though Graham Lear is adequate, he lacks the urgency generated by former drummer Mike Shrieve. So Inner Secrets remains an okay album from a band that could — and should — make more-than-okay music. So what else is new? […]

roostercrows @ RateYourMusic
This album is not top world class, but Santana and his group show good skill. Greg Walker is IMO the best singer Santana ever enlisted. Stormy is one of my favorite songs. I prefer the version of Well All Right to the ones of the Crickets and Blind Faith. […]

Wilson & Alroy’s Record Reviews
Most of the original material is better, especially when Walker shuts up and lets Carlos play (“Life Is A Lady/Holiday”; “Wham!”). But only the band is to blame for their thudding arena-metal rocker “Open Invitation,” and throughout there’s so little of Santana‘s patented guitar wizardry that even fans will barely recognize the band they’re listening to.
