2 stars Yes, all good things have their end! After great collection of excellend and good latin-rock and latin-fusion albums, Santana released first belove average level album.

The band returned back to latin-rock elements ( from latin-fusion of last works), but main album sound is pop-rock and pop with world elements. There are few great songs ( at the very beginning), but all other aren't even average. Samba dance rhythms, some sweet pop down tempo pieces, very amorphous material scented with latin folk. Unfocused mix of very different songs. But (after opening songs) you can feel, that disco era is coming!

In fact , only few songs are great, all others are fillers. First disaapering from Santana ( and far away not last!)
