"The second, and undoubtedly better album, from the Sydney-based Santana-influenced Latin rock outfit, Pirana. The band's eponymous first album was a variable prog effort, but Pirana II, also released on Harvest in Australia, is an altogether different matter. With its unforgettable artwork, Pirana II featured some exceptionally strong Aussie prog rock, blending as it did some fine instrumentals, lots of fuzz guitar and flowing Hammond organ. Comparisons have often been made with their more illustrious musical counterparts, but to many there was a whole lot more to the band than merely reflecting Santana's blend of rock and Latin, although there is no denying the debt that Pirana owed to Santana. There is fine, melodic song writing in abundance, mainly from guitarist and vocalist Tony Hamilton, and it is in the diversity of these self-penned pieces that the band fashions its own individuality."
