We’re used to listening to amazing instrumental songs from Santana but this is one of the most beautiful with Santana using his distinctive guitar style and recognizable tones. Though the album as a whole has a commercial rock feel, Santana still managed to infuse the songs with a Latino flavor.
Zebop!’s formula is simple, and all of the songs carry an appeal that is aimed at a wider and more marketable audience base, with “Changes,” “Searchin,” and “I Love You Much Too Much” coming through as efficient yet not overly extravagant rock & roll efforts. The album’s adjustable rhythms and accommodating structures kept the band alive as the decade rolled over
