Having played the superb 'Donde Estan Los Ladrones' and 'Laundry Service' to death, I was relieved to get Shakira's latest album for Christmas. It doesn't have the instant appeal of her aforementioned offerings (aside from the fantastic La Tortura) but it's certainly a grower. Very 80s sounding and Annie Lennox-esque in places and thus sometimes sounds older than Los Ladrones but there are some massive tunes to get carried away with. Worst: Escondite Ingles - I always forward it. Best: La Pared (accoustic), Obtener un Si, La Tortura, No, En Tus Pupilas - actually pretty much the rest of the album. Buy it!!
