5 stars Santana III best captures the real firey passion Carlos once had. And Neal Schon pushed Santana to the edge, dueling it out lick for lick and what we have, much like the previous album is quality music still sounding as fresh as it was when it was recorded. It proves to be a powerfully rewarding album if you give it time, loaded with memorable moments and even the song-writing was improving. Both "Everything Is Comming Our Way" and "Taboo" feature some subtle hooks and soulful vocals from Greg Rollie. Not too mention some smokin' guitar solos from Carlos and Schon. And what about the wah wah infected solo on "Everybody's Everything"? Definitely one of my all time favourite guitar solos. Tower of Power contributes nicely here as well. Guajrina offers a nice divergence from the usual heavy handed stylings. Love the trumpet solo. Everything on here is spectacular. This is essential Santana. Highly recommended.
