Marie sings almost perfect in Spanish; maybe her only noticeable flaw is on the sound of T's (she pronounce them a little bit hard). In the other hand, Per Gessle has indeed trouble with Spanish. But the sound of the album is pretty good and is a fine attempt. I like it. The reason I don't give it 5 stars is because the persons that made the Spanish versions of the songs didn't respect the meaning of the original lyrics in a couple of them. I understand is difficult to make English-Spanish translations for songs, because of the ritm and the differences between both languages (words in Spanish are larger), but Per Gessle is a wonderful composer and his songs deserve more respect, so I can't stand a beautiful song being changed on its spirit (i.e. the Spanish version for "I don't want to get hurt" is "Quiero ser como tú", wich means 'I want to be like you'). Despite this, Marie Fredriksson sings like a goddess and you can hear different sounds on her voice; and the melodies are as marvelous as always.

I don't know much Spanish but this album makes me want to learn. Spanish is a very romantic language I think and hence good for their ballads. It doesn't matter to me that it doesn't quite translate cos I don;t understand it anyway. Its more the different feeling and dimension that Spanish gives. It adds a different quality to the music which I like. Spanish is a very feeling language I think.
This is a great album for romance whether you speak Spanish or not. Spending My Time, Crash Boom Bang and particularly Vulnerable or Timida are the best. I even learnt the Spanish version of this song to play on guitar it just adds a new dimension to the song and their was this cute Columbian girl who I wanted to impress. It must Have Been Love is also nice. In fact damn they all are but I think my fave is Timida. One discrepancy - note that Run To You is considered a ballad on here and yet a pop hit. I think myself it more of a ballad and should have been replaced by something else on the Pop Hits album like Fireworks which is a cool song and people need to hear it damn it.
Ah well. Opportunity nox and Little Miss Sorrow could have been put on the other CD with Bla Bla Bla and Stupid and they could have dropped the other two. Anyway my gripe.
The other ballads on this album are also some of Roxette's best songs that should have been singles in my opinion. Watercolours in the Rain, I'm Sorry and Perfect Day are all awesome awesome songs.

Thank you MARIE & PER for reinterpreting a dozen of your beautiful power ballads and rockers into Spanish language versions for all to hear worldwide. Though a couple of the songs do not translate from English to Spanish as they were lyrically written in their English versions - [makes one wonder what the original subject matter was in Swedish language] - it becomes obvious that the gorgeously composed melodies needed Spanish lyrics to express what all the Roxette excitement is about to the vast and devoted Latin audience this band has been blessed with. Nevertheless, it all remains quite a successful and triumphant feat that Roxette so well redefines for one culture of their massive audiences. I can see why a couple other reviewers think some of the Spanish versions seem strange..."FADING LIKE A FLOWER", one of the band's premiere power ballad-rockers, is translated lyrically into "SOY UNA MUJER(I AM A WOMAN)", which quickly diminishes the universal appeal of this gem of a tearjerker to anyone who understands both the English/Spanish lyrics. Sometimes you have to find words(lyrics) to match and flow along without changing the melody in translation. ROXETTE remain as captivating and spellbinding in Spanish. As in English, ROXETTE remains powerfully fascinating in Spanish, and any other language they choose to translate their irressistably enchanting music for their international audiences in! Marie impresses even more on the ROXETTE Complete Video Dvd collection's clip for "UN DIA SIN TI(Spending My Time)" where she sings her heart out in all her Spanish inspiration. Great music from one of the most creative and productive bands in rock history!

All the best ballads from Roxette have been re-mixed and re-sung in Spanish, making an astounding album, really very different from any of the original songs. I would recommend anyone to buy this.

This is one of my favorite albums of all time. All the songs are fantastic, and it's real great to put on this album to get into a romantic mood.

This really sounds great! Songs in Spanish are much better, more romantic and harmonic

Roxette released this album thinking about the Spanish speaking market (just like Abba did many years before; both Abba and Roxette got a mediocre result due to their linguistic inability). But keeping in mind that this is merely a commercial product, perhaps we should not be so severe. The selection of songs is good, the translations are not very accurate but they fit within the melody (that must have been a painstaking job). However, Marie and Per's diction in Spanish is simply horrible. They are merely reading aloud the words in Swedish. I will not deny these are good songs but definitely they are not good SPANISH songs.
