What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

Oral Fixation, Vol. 2 / Shakira
Oral Fixation, Vol. 2 Oral Fixation, Vol. 2 is the flip side of Fijación Oral, Vol. 1, an all-Spanish release from a year ago. (Do people still know what "flip side" means, now that the 45 is history?) Vol. 2 represents more than just a change of language; it's an attempt to move more into the mainstream of pop, or at least what we monolingual Americans think of pop. I'd call it a qualified success; the tracks are kind of uneven but generally very listenable. Although I'm of the opinion that Hips Don't Lie owes its musical bite more to Wyclef Jean, even as the video belongs to Shakira. Still, an impressive transition, and one that makes me more interested in sampling her Latin side.
