5 stars Same line up as their debut but this is an instant five star masterpiece. No contest. From the hurried sounding first track of ' Singing Winds, Crying Beasts ' to the classic singing chorus on ' Black Magic Woman'. This is probably their most popular song up to the Supernatural album of 1999.' Oye Como Va' has a great looping vocals with nice congas and percussion feel to the song as is ' Se a Cabo' a bit later on. ' Samba Pa Ti' the most nostalgic melancholic instrumental on the album is followed by the rocking ' Hope Your'e feeling better'. This album defined the distinctive sound Santana had for the next two decades and beyond. There were line up changes aplenty but few of their albums could match the greatness of Abraxas. Great cover artwork also.
