5 stars The formula from their debut was brought to perfection on its follow-up, "Abraxas". There is simply not a weak moment on this album. "Black Magic Woman" (much better than the original of Peter Green), "Oye Como Va", "Samba Pa Ti", "Se a Cabo" and "Incident at Neshabur" helped practically invent the whole new "Santana" music genre. Yes, it was and still is highly popular and commercial, but that cannot diminish the fact that the music provided here was very original, inventive, emotional and played with confident and heart. And even more important, it passed the test of time. "Abraxas" belongs to a legion of the best rock and even "progressive rock" (taken in a broader sense) albums of the era.
