This is a damn fine collection of work.

"This is the CD I've heard the least about. After checking out some of the reviews here at Amazon, I decided to give it a try. This really is a great collection. I'm a fan of Santana's early work,Abraxas,III,Caravanserai,Live With Buddy Miles,and the early 1980's release,Zebop. Santana plays with fire again on Milagro. All the distinctive qualities one attributes to Santana are found on Milagro. I'll even go so far as to declare this as possibly his best work since the early seventies. Yes, Milagro is even better in my opinion than Zebop. Buy it.You will not be disappointed."
It's a masterpiece

"Begining with the moving introduction by the late Bill Graham, this album is almost 72 minutes of emotional music and lyrics. Carlos' guitar is as good as it's ever been."
Beginning of the turnaround

"This is a comeback album for Santana.In the late sixties and early seventies, Santana was a major force in rock music. He was a big innovator, bringing Latin and African sounds to rock. Later he mixed in the San Francisco psychodelic sound and then went on to jazz fusion. Throughout this time, his music was rich, lush and pushed the boundaries. There was a lot of energy and emotion in everything he played.In the mid-seventies and all through the eighties, Santana swtiched to a stripped down, pop sound. Most of his hits were covers of old pop tunes. He had a series of unremarkable lead singers. There was no imagination to the music. It was just a matter of taking pop, adding a few congo drums and a short Santana guitar solo. However, his live shows remained exciting.This album marks the rebound of Santana. He returns to the rich, overlapping sound that made him famous. The first three tracks are long, powerful numbers. The cover of Marvin Gaye's Right On is especially inspired. Also outstanding is Free All the People. There are some weak tracks, like Life Is For Living and Make Someone Happy. But, the CD is almost 70 minutes long and there is enough good music to rate 5 stars.After this, Santana released the amazing live album Sacred Fire, where he took all his old hits and made them fresh and exciting again. Then came the Supernatural, the top selling ablum of 1999 and 2000."
