4.0 out of 5 stars Shakira - She Wolf, 22 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: She Wolf (Audio CD)
Although this album was released in 2009 I have only just added it to my collection, more out of curiosity than anything else, wondering why Shakira had waited four years to release new material!

When Colombian born Shakira first burst onto the scene a few years ago, I initially dismissed her as a serious artist [ believing her to be "yet another" here today gone tomorrow young female pop star who relied on skimpy stage outfits and erotic dancing to sell her music]. How wrong could I be for within months she had become the single greatest selling Spanish language artist pushing Jennifer Lopez from this rare and valuable pedestal. Yes, some of Shakira's music was raunchy, but her skills as both a song writer and performer were without question and her voice a true delight.

I was also skeptical when she released her first album in English but she truly brought the same vitality as her native tongue, but maybe with marginally less passion, and I was hooked!

She Wolf is Shakira's third album primarily in English and, for the first time, she employed the Neptunes to produce it for her.The result is both interesting and entertaining although all the tracks do not demonstrate the level of passion we have come to expect of Shakira. As a stand alone album She Wolf is probably not her best effort to date but for those who already have her earlier work [especially in Spanish] it does demonstrate her ability and range, albeit over ten tracks not the customary twelve.

In short She Wolf is a worthwhile addition to any Shakira fan's library but be prepared for some inevitable dance tracks and less passion when compared to her classic Laundry Service or Oral Fixation albums.
