    I've been a fan of her first album, Pies Descalzos for a while now. I was kinda bummed this album was not featured more on the MTV Unpluged album... especially track 2 Antologia.

    I'll have to pick up her newest here one of these days, from the few tracks I've heard, it sounds good.

    I wonder why she only played one song on SNL last week (or maybe it was 2 weeks ago)? Found it strange they threw up some rap for the last slot. I thought it was customary for one musician to fill both slots. She came out at the end of the show... so it's not like she had to run off somewhere.

    I completely disagree with the Spears analogy. At least Shakira writes almost every one of her songs herself - music and lyrics both. Not too many that do that nowadays, at least not that good-looking [​IMG]. And she's been doing that since age 8 or so... I doubt Britney Spears knew then (or still knows) what a microphone is used for... [​IMG]
    Her lyrics are really funny - and pretty damn sharp. I recently bought her album Laundry Service, based on the MTV flick (and, yep, she's awesome in that video... [​IMG]) of Whenever, Wherever. I like the English lyrics, but the Spanish ones are better.
    She's not a fantastic singer - she keeps mangling words (in her non-native English), and she does have a bit of a warble here and there - but, between the sheer energy of her music, the ability to mix Latin/Rock/Country/Folk themes together in an awesome blend, and the fantastic, hardcore lyrics, she certainly has gotten my vote.
    I usually do not listen to albums back to back to back, it gets way too boring; but this one - well, let's just say that since Monday I have listened to it over 20 times, 4 times on Monday night alone... At home, with a nice SVS to help that awesome bass track [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG], and on the way to and from anywhere... and I am not tiring of it. Something that is positively unique in my experience, and actually throws me for a loop - I don't understand it. But I sure enjoy it!

    P.S.: Guess what is currently playing?

    I likes the way she shakes the Bootay!! Hubba Hubba!!

    But seriously, she seems pretty talented. If she writes her own music, you gotta respect that.
