  1. With only nine tracks, followed by three español translations and a handful of superfluous bonus tunes, She Wolf feels a bit thin. That quibble aside, this is some of the most unusually effective dance-floor dynamite you're likely to encounter all year.
  2. This blend of cheerful weirdness and sick beats--often supplied by the Neptunes, delivering tough, sensual rhythms in a way they haven’t in a long time, but also John Hill and Wyclef Jean--is giddily addicting, a celebration of all the strange sensuality that comes out at night.
  3. These are very much Shakira songs, not merely songs produced by The Neptunes.

    "I want us thinking outside the box," Shakira tells a lover on her third English-language studio disc. And musically, at least, she succeeds throughout the wildly eclectic She Wolf.
  5. Ultimately, the list of collaborators on She Wolf may be an impressive roll call, but perhaps Shakira would do better in listening to her own instincts than that of others.
  6. It’s so undercooked and overwritten--with wan wolf howls and lines about being treated like a coffee machine in an office--that it reaches a special class of fascinating-awful.

Este álbum es muy bueno! Los ritmos son impresionantes, las letras son otra cosa, algunas son buenas y otras no tienen propósito de ser el fuerte de la canción. "Mon Amour", "Men In This Town" y "Give It Up To Me" son las mejores sin duda. Expand

    It's pretty cool but her spanish work is much better. I'll wait for her Spanish cd to come out.

    It doesn't matter how many times I listen to this album, I always come to the same conclusion: it's one of the worsts albums ever. It doesn't matter how many times I listen to this album, I always come to the same conclusion: it's one of the worsts albums ever. What was she thinking? Was she trying to be a bad clone of Britney Spears? Why does she sound so bad? She used to do good music, or at least music you can listen to. She's just a joke, a marketing strategy. Expand
