After reading reviews online (mixed to about 50/50) I decided to give it a try. My opinion of this album is as follows:
1) The techno remixes are not cheezy like I thought they would be. They have all the qualities of any good techno song plus the added bonus of Shakira's one-in-a-million voice.
2) The Portuguese remixes are sensational and every bit as loveable as the originals.
3) The jazzy version of "Un Poco de Amor" caught me off guard in the most pleasant of ways! It's got a real jazz soul to it and it just proves that Shakira's voice sounds great with any music!
1) There was not enough variety in the songs, there were only FOUR songs total in rotation on this album!
2) The songs got repetitive.
3) They should have remixed more songs.
4) I noticed that it was slim pickins as far as songs.
5) Get my point??????
I would suggest this album to anyone who's a true Shakira fan and who's not afraid to go out on a limb to expand their library of her music. Even if it's not heavenly to you, it's probable you'll like SOMETHING about it.
I'm not usually a fan of re-mixes and find them boring much of the time, but I am a Shakira fan, so of course I had to add this to my collection. The best songs are the three Portuguese versions, which she made for her adoring Brazilian fans out there (those aren't re-mixes). It's interesting to sing along using the Spanish lyrics and to hear how similar/different the two languages are. This CD is full of energy, but unfortunately it's also a bit monotonous.
On the plus side:
1) You DO get great remixes of the four songs.
2) You get 3 of them in portuguese. Its cool to hear her songs in different languages. English, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic...
I'd reccomend this album to only those who want to have every Shakira CD alive (otherwise known as the die-hard Shakira fan) or if the four songs on the album are your absolute favorite ones. For any others buy another Shakira CD, you could get better for your money.
