dont miss this!,
This review is from: Donde Estan Los Ladrones (Audio CD)
How many supposedly great albums have you spent good money on, from some reviewers recommendation, only to be played a couple of times and left in the rack to act as a graphical illustration of the hype and hollowness of the Uk music scene. How many foreign language albums have you bought for six quid out of curiosity and wore out the lens on your cd player with?
Take a chance on this, I have spent more time listening to this over the last year than I have mainstream radio, even though I dont understand a word (although the same goes for radio). This is captivating and pushes all the right musical buttons from the insistently rocky 'Si te vas' to the soaring melody of 'no creo' through the peerless 'Tu' to the bittersweet beauty of 'sombra de ti' and all the other gems in between. It is such a shame that Shakira gets so little UK airplay singing in English let alone Spanish.
