  1. Sale el Sol still demonstrates Shakira's boldly global mindset.

    Sale el Sol manages to bridge the divide between the old and new Shakira with a spark that keeps you listening to the very end.

    Sale el Sol never once sounds disparate or overworked -- it's sunny and easy, its natural buoyancy disguising Shakira's range and skill -- but listen closely and it becomes apparent that nobody makes better pop records in the new millennium than she does.

    The album isn't as heady as She Wolf, but there's an easy charm to how Shakira deftly navigates such a mash of genres.

    Mostly, her new album is businesslike, serious, sane.

    Shakira acaba de demonstrar que no es una diva superficial de las que unicamente siguen la moda del momento. Sale el Sol es un discoShakira acaba de demonstrar que no es una diva superficial de las que unicamente siguen la moda del momento. Sale el Sol es un disco completamente distinto a todo lo que suena actualmente y conserva la gran esencia de Shakira. Loca, Rabiosa y A2U aparentemente son canciones normales hechas con el fin apenas de hacer bailar a la gente, pero si nos ponemos apensar esas 3 canciones ofrecen algo fresco frente a las canciones con beats electronicos, hacer que medio mundo baile un genero tan latino como el merengue es algo dificil y muchas veces imposible para las demà Expand

Shakira tries to find her old self again and she pretty much succeeds in it. She combines many genres of music and her ballads are full of passion and emotion! Spanish make the songs even more attractive. Even if you don't know the language the tracks can move you! It is very exciting! Expand

Shakira should just get away for a while from that style and keep releasing stuff like this that really sounds amazing for her. I had very big expectations about this new album for the simple fact that it was conceived in Spanish... and then Shakira saying "I'll try to include Latin rhythms" and "old style" and stuff... I needed to listen to it as soon as possible. Not perfect but as good as it should be! "Sale el sol" it's not her best album honestly but it's a great quality album! The wait was worthy. Expand
