      Disadvantages

      Sadly, nothing special about this album

      Nelly Furtado is no stranger to changing her musical style - Whoa Nelly, Folklore and Loose were all completely different - but her fourth album is still something of a surprise, being sung wholly in Spanish. Mi Plan ('My Plan') has been suggested to be an attempt at conquering the South American market, but it enjoyed some success in the UK too. The album features collaborations with some of the biggest names in Latin American music

      Bonus Track - Fantansma

      I don't know a word of Spanish, so I wasn't sure about getting this album at first. I took a chance on it as I was such a big Nelly Furtado fan. All of the tracks are very light and poppy with plenty of guitars and strong beats. The album wouldn't sound out of place in a Spanish or Latin American restaurant. The problem I have with it is that there are no standout tracks. It's all pleasant enough but I find it hard to differentiate the tracks from one another. I did wonder if this is because it's in Spanish and therefore less memorable, but I don't think so - it's the melody, not the lyrics, that is the problem here. There's nothing particularly exciting or interesting.

      This is a pleasant enough album but as far as I'm concerned it doesn't compare to Nelly's other three albums. I can only think of two occasions when this CD would come in handy: if I'm having a Spanish-themed party and want to create the mood, or if I want some light background music for when I'm doing something else. The album is currently available from Amazon for around £12. I got it when the price dropped to under £4 and I'm pleased I waited - I would have resented paying full price for it.

      I'm rather disappointed with the album overall, but I look forward to Nelly's next release - I haven't given up on her yet!
