AllMusic - 80
Based on rating 8/10

No matter the numerous musical terrains Santana have traversed since the late 1960s, their trademark Afro-Latin sound is so recognizable it often dominates the band's material. Not here; on Africa Speaks that sound is just one among many -- some tunes here are almost unrecognizable as Santana). Produced by Rick Rubin, Africa Speaks was compiled from a whopping 49 songs, all recorded over ten days at Shangri-La in Malibu -- many in a single take -- most inspired by African melodies and polyrhythms.
