First a confession-I don't speak Spanish except for the few words I retained from 7th/8th grade. I can't understand a lick of the lyrics on this CD-perhaps after many repetitive listenings I may get a glint or two! Guess what-this is a beautifully uplifting package of music in ANY language.
I've been a Nelly fan since her first CD, I've got all of them and regularly listen to them on my treadmill. I especially love Nelly's ballad's-she is so incredibly lilting, almost spiritual as she sings angelicly away. I can't think of anyone better-and my musical interests range all over the board. If you love Nelly's ballads, you won't be disappointed-this entire CD is filled with them and definitely hit the mark. There are a few latin inspired tunes (I wouldn't go as far as to use the term salsa), but the entirety of this CD is so tastefully done and features the most important and awe-inspiring component: Nelly's flowing voice in full octave! It's sweet and easy to listen to, and just has a great vibe and mood to it. If you're like me and trying to decide of you should go for a Spanish language CD, I say GO FOR IT you won't regret it. Nelly...thanks, stay true to yourself you are one of the great contemporary performers and I'm glad I found you.
