While I've generally liked all of Shakira's 21st Century albums (aside from the original release version of Oral Fixation Volume 2), I just can't get enough of SALE EL SOL! I can't say that I dislike anything on here.
Like Donde Estan Los Ladrones, SALE EL SOL covers lots of musical ground. I can't say I'm much of a reggaeton fan, but I must admit two of my favorites are Gordita and Rabiosa. Both are kind of obnoxious--but in a GOOD way! If my vote counts for anything, I'd like to see Devocion released as a single--it's "classic" Shakira. There's a LOT to like about this album! Lyrics included in the booklet.
As a note, be aware that the WAKA WAKA versions on this album are remixes and NOT the single/video versions which feature other female vocalists. So, if you're expecting what you've heard on the radio, this isn't it. Although living in the backwoods of the midwest, I hate to report that we don't get to hear Shakira on the radio at all--not even "Hips Don't Lie." So, I'm forced to get my Latin musical fixes off the TV music channels and internet radio feeds!
I give FIVE STARS to SALE EL SOL. I liked it from start to finish and can't even muster a petty gripe about it! In my opinion, as a complete album, it's the best Shakira album of the century--so far!
