The fire and the reason

Anglo-latino music these days has many faces: kinky, plastilina mosh, la rubio and a couple of others. I used to think they were sell outs, to later realize not so much. There are things I get when I hear TFATR sing in spanish, that I wouldn't relate to if they sang in another language in and viceversa, I get it. But this rule doesn't apply to everyone, given that translations are not always a direct version of the original feeling (Yes, I'm looking at you Shakira). So if you can feel and write in 2 languages, or 3 in the case of Bella, the brazilian lead singer of the band, more power to you and to you, the fire and the reason.
