is it me or is this album a million miles better than the English language She Wolf album? It may be that Shakira's recent attempts to adapt to the English speaking US market just don't work for me, or it might be that the songs she writes in Spanish are really better (and I mean musically more than linguistically). It's particularly obvious in the slow pieces like Antes de las seis, and Lo que mas.
There are a few English tracks as well including the XX cover she played at Glastonbury, Islands, and the World Cup song Waka Waka (which like Whenever Wherever works in both languages), but they fit in surprisingly well.
This album reaches all the parts that the she wolf didn't, and if you don't understand Spanish, learn it!
