Yep, agreed. And the critics seem to agree too. Gushing reviews in Mojo magazine at at Allmusic.com (neither place has been too kind to Santana over the past 20 years). Sometimes as a fan you don't have the required distance to see or hear the music they way others do. I really like the album and it's more than we have a right to expect from a 71 year old fifty years after his debut album.
To me “Africa Speaks” is Santana’s 21st Century “Milagro”. Great music, exciting music, whether Carlos is a technically very limited guitar player or not... Almost 72 years old; over 50 years in the business... Chapeau and a deep deep bow!
