The list author says: "Sometimes I want the music I listen to not to be fully understandable. There is something magical about songs in which I cannot understand a word and still can enjoy the melody or the performance of the artist. That's why in my private collection of CD's, I've got some foreign artists that I truly respect and love to listen to every once in a while. I think these artist are no less talented than others. Try them, maybe you'll get to this point as I did: music is good and exciting in any language!"
"A singer from Uruguay. Every album of her have lovely songs to offer to the listener, if you like the Latin rhythms and feel - especially this one, her debut. Salsa, Cha-Cha-Cha, Rumba. A great, and a good one, Latin party, with two exceptions of two lovely and touching ballads. No need to understand Spanish in order to love it. Her voice is warm and very real, in my opinion."
"I don't understand a word is Japanese, but I can understand why she is callad the princess of J-Pop. With a unique voice, her style is addictive, and this album is perfect from start to finish! Ayumi is worth every dollar you'll pay on her music."
"This one is very close to my heart, as my parents are from Argentina. Soledad brings the folk Argentinian music to the young generation, and that's a bliss - this music is captivating, exciting, and can touch your soul. Beautiful rhythms and a magnificent voice. The voice of Argentina."
"Actually, I have a collection of him with his Slovak band, 'Team' - but if this album is close in quality to the collection I've got - this is an excellent album for sure. Pavol Habera has a relaxing voice that comes from his heart. If you can, get a used copy of his album, or one with his band. Bet you'll like it as I did."
"OK, I'm Israeli, so I can understand every word this wonderful singer is singing, and still - for most of you she's singing in a foreign language... She has a clear and unique voice, To me Ofra Haza is the real connection between the west and the east. Yemenite folk combined with contemporary pop. Wonderful."
"I always prefer the old brunette Shakira, when she just a very talented Colombian singer. With a strong and powerful voice, you cannot stay calm when you hear it. Got to get up and move your body. This early album of her is one of her best. Very refreshing."
"Alizee is a lovely young French singer with a sweet voice, and her music - especially on this album and the one before it are 80's retro in feel, rhythm and lyrics. It's quite addictive, in fact. . Every song here is a gem, and will get stuck in your head for days."
"I don't actually have this album, but a good friend of mine is Russian and like his music, and so I got the chance to hear this magnificent Russian singer. Hope to get one of his CD's someday in the future. He has a powerful and rich voice, with a lot of expression to it. There's a reason why he's one of the most famous Russian singers of our time. Highly recommended."
