Shakira, 'She Wolf' (Epic)

Critical Mass
Label:

by Mikael Wood

"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, which bounces from Arabian-accented Neptunes-brand electro-funk ("Why Wait") to Strokes-style garage rock ("Mon Amour") to the lovably bonkers synth-pop title track, cowritten by the Bravery's Sam Endicott and Santigold's longtime partner John Hill. Even "Spy," an obvious "Hips Don't Lie" sequel featuring Wyclef Jean, exudes daffy-diva charm.
