1.0 out of 5 stars AWFUL, 26 Jan. 2010
This review is from: She Wolf (Audio CD)
It pains me to say this, having been a huge fan of Shakira since Donde Estan Los Ladrones? came out...but this album is really nothing special at all.

A lot has been said and written about Shakira's new electro-influenced sound, and while it seems to have gained her more casual fans and airplay (which I suppose the music industry is really geared towards these days), it seems that all her little quirks that have made her previous releases so charming have been ironed out, completely erased. This album does not have that 'Shakira-esque' sound- it sounds like so many other albums out at the moment. The songs could have been written and sung by anybody and to me that is really sad. The only Shakira-sounding songs are Gypsy and Mon Amour, which sound more folk and rock influenced respectively, which highlights the album's other flaw- it doesn't seem to flow as a cohesive piece of work, seemingly switching style all over the place, and while Shakira has done this on previous albums, when the material here is of such poor quality and not even identifiable as her own work, this really doesn't work. In this case, she is schizophrenic, but in a bad way.

I would beg everybody to avoid this album. Hopefully, with her next album (which is supposedly Latin-folk and rock influenced) Shakira will redeem herself somewhat.
