Shakira's English vocabulary is astounding. Even native English singers don't use such a diverse use of descriptive language. Every song on the album is written and composed beautifully, the only exception being Eyes Like Yours (Ojos Asi), which doesn't capture the same lyrical timing in its new english translation (courtesy of Gloria Estefan). Shakira's voice, however, sounds its most natural when she sings Spanish. I don't even speak/understand Spanish, but I can hear and feel a little more passion in her Spanish songs. Maybe that's good, because I'm impartial to the language; but am judging by the sound and rhythm of her voice. It's worth listening to from begining to end each time you decide to play Laundry Service. Buy it and enjoy!

-Mark quote

This is a great album - Very far from the style of C. Aguilera, B. Spears etc... Shakira proves herself as an excellent musician: Singer, player and composer. Warning: This is not "Bubble Gum" music at all. The music here is poetic with a nice load of rock (You will hear here dashes of Nirvana, Led Zeppelin and more) mixed with some other interesting rythms. Excellent ballads and fun dancy tunes. Many good songs and clever words put together, make this CD a must for any good music fan.

Product Overview

A child prodigy who wrote her first song at age eight, Shakira is a blond-locked Colombian who speaks three languages and loves only in Spanish. She is in the blush of youth, but she's far older than her 24 years. Shakira's album, Laundry Service, is her first with English-language tunes, the kind of breakthrough work that will turn the pop world on its head. From the tango-inflected "Objection (Tango)," to the Middle Eastern flavor of "Eyes Like Yours," to the lyrical innovations of "Underneath Your Clothes," to the richness of the melodies of "The One," to the pop-rock of "Whenever Wherever," Shakira stands in the ranks of the best singer-songwriters in any language. "I think I am celebrating life more than ever," said Shakira. "I had a slightly narrow vision of love. Now I am feeling unguarded, and it feels great. I feel washed clean of the way I looked at things in the past, which is why I am calling the album Laundry Service."
