Editorial Reviews

Sale el Sol was recorded in the Bahamas, London, Barcelona, and the Dominican Republic. The title track, Sale el Sol was co-written with her friend and collaborator, Luis Fernando Ochoa. Shakira dedicated this song to her close friend Gustavo Cerati during the Rock in Rio show in Madrid in June, 2010. Shakira teamed up with El Cata, a famous Dominical reggaeton artist for the tracks Rabiosa and Loca con el Tigre , adding an urban edge (twist) to these up-tempo dance tracks. Gordita is a collaboration with René Pérez, frontman and contentious lyricist from Calle 13. In the track René admits that he liked Shakira more with dark hair and a bit heavier ( me gustabas cuando estabas mas gordita/con el pelito negrito/ y la cara redondita ) They performed the song together at Rock in Rio in Madrid, and the Glastonbury Music Festival in June of 2010. Mariposa is a ballad which features legendary guitarist , Gustavo Cerati, as well as the renowned pianist Alejandro Menéndez. Gustavo Cerati also plays guitar on the song Tu Boca . Sale el Sol reminds fans of Shakira s talent for writing songs that leave a mark on their generation with her inspired lyrics and unforgettable style.

This is not Donde Estan Los Ladrones or She Wolf.... Oral Fixation or Laundry Service. And certainly not Pies Descalzos. This is a new era in Shakira's life and with a new era comes changes in her persona and her music. We have to understand that Shakira's past albums will never be repeated and it is foolish to yearn for her to do a "Part 2" of something that is over and done. True fans should learn to appreciate what Shakira is doing. Whether it is experimenting with Pop, Dance, Electronic, Hip Hop or Latin music. I personally have enjoyed & embraced every single one of Shakira's albums. Yes, some are stronger than others but they all hold a special place in my life. That being said, I would like to begin my review of Sale El Sol.

I have to say that I am very impressed with this new album. I enjoyed this album since my very first listen. As many other reviewers have stated, Shakira does return to some of her previous roots but at the same time offers something very fresh and new. This album has to be Shakira's most experimental as she explores different genres to bring us a good blend of music. The title track, Sale El Sol, explains that there is hope after our moments of sorrow and that after the storm, the sun comes out. Antes De Las Seis channels the mellow songs featured on Ladrones/Fixation and talks about a person who is being vulnerable and giving their all only to be shun by the other person.

The album also features some fantastic dance songs which are absolutely infectious and impossible not to dance along to. Loca, Addicted To You, Gordita, and Rabiosa are very fast paced and full of energy. Shakira teases with El Cata, Calle 13, and Pitbull to bring a fun filled atmosphere to the album.

Absolutely loved this CD. Her lyrics are as good as they were with her earlier albums ("Pies Descalzos" and "Donde Estan Los Ladrones?") and the music varies from her old-fashioned rock style that's perfect to listening while driving (Sale El Sol) to quieter songs with smaller musical resources that are equally effective (Lo Que Más). This album balances itself perfectly in satisfying long time fans who were disappointed with "She Wolf" as well as fans who are looking for something new to enjoy from her. She goes back to her roots while exploring new fields that she's never delved into before. And to make things even better, there is also a Waka Waka remix that will remind you why Shakira is an icon and one of the best entertainers in the business. She makes me and countless others proud of being Latin American.

So here we are!
After Laundry Service, I thought Shakira will never go back to her roots.
Laundry Service was still a Shakira album, however she missed the Latino flav.

She nearly hit them with Fijacion Oral Vol. 1 but it was not exactly that same, as she was
in the 90'.

If I did know the date of the release of Sale El Sol, I would definetly think it's one of her
early albums.
But hey! It's 2010!
And damn, she got back to her roots like crazy.
The album is a masterpiece.
It contains the rock,soft-ballad and Latin power Shakira had since her beginning.

The dance song Loca is great as a fun song, however if you listen to the whole album you will notice it is one of the least favorites.
The album begins with Sale El Sol, which totally reminds me on Pies Descalzos album.
Antes De Las Seis is one of the highlights, it is a beautiful written and vocally performed ballad.
Gordita has an amazing reggae beat, a pretty unusual sound.

Lo Que Mas, is as Antes De Las Seis another great ballad, specially if you speak Spanish and know the lyrics.

THE highlight as for me right now is Devocion.
It is perfect. It contains great lyrics, it's deep,aggressive, sad, rock-influent and it's just WOW.
On this song, you can perfectly see, Shakira is a great vocal performance.

The album also contains the worldwide hit Waka, Waka.

Forget all the mainstream music produced by same producers as Dr. Luke or Max Martin (nothing against them, but hey, it's little bit too much on the radio from them)

and buy the real music!

I am actually shocked that many people have already clambered up the "best album of Shakira's career" mountain, because while it is definitely better than her last one, She Wolf/Loba, it does not compare to her previous work. There are songs that stir up nostalgia, like 'Sale el sol,' 'Antes de las seis,' and 'Lo que más,' but as someone else mentioned already, the lyrics are not original as they once were. I admit that I am warming up to the CD, though I listened to it right before listening to Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 and Sale el sol is inferior to it. I admit that the music is beautiful and her voice soars. While the CD is certainly a solid work, I listen to Shakira for her voice but also for her witty and wise lyrics. The ones that pleased me most are:

-Antes de las seis
-Tu boca

The rest are decent. Anyway, if you are a Shaki fan, you will see by listening to the album that she really tried to make an album for those who have followed her throughout her career. It is a rebirth of the Shakira from the beginning.
