  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.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. With the Sun coming out, comes an album that's sure to take you to various boundaries every time a track changes in the absolutely awesome album. Shakira certainly understands the notion of 'Cultural Diversity' in 20-Ten and no one can get better than her when it comes to mixing them to prepare the perfect recipe which is sure to become a international phenomenon! Must listen's include Devocion, Islands and Rabiosa that's gonna get you all dancing the moment you hear it! And how can anyone forget, Loca! Shakira's surely crazy and we absoultely love Crazy! Way to go! 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's musical diversity is amazing. A year ago, she issued She Wolf, an album full of dance and electro pop. Now, Shakira gives us Sale elShakira's musical diversity is amazing. A year ago, she issued She Wolf, an album full of dance and electro pop. Now, Shakira gives us Sale el Sol, completely different to She Wolf, and more eclectic than anything she has done before. Songs in the album can be divided into three completely different styles. First: the latin, merengue, reggaeton, fiesta songs (Loca, Gordita. Addicted to you, Rabiosa). Second: pop rock songs in the style of her older albums (Sale el Sol, Mariposas, Devoción, Islands, Tu Boca) Third: delicate beautiful ballads (Antes de las seis, Lo que más) So the album's greatest success is also its only failure: there are so many contrasting styles that songs don't stick together very well to each other. However, the album is still very good: the title track will be welcomed by fans of her 90's stuff, Loca is a tremendous dance song and would have been a huge hit if released in Summer, and Antes de las seis is a ballad that remembers us how Shakira's songwriting can be.
