Sources belong here, not in external links or written into the reference section[edit]

I moved some comments here from the reference section. THIS is the place to discuss the contents of what we present on the articles. If a new user wants to make changes, this is the place. These were the notes I moved here:

En Mi Piel is a 2-CD set featuring Buika s greatest recordings from her first four studio projects.

Two previously unrealeased tracks are included from Almodovar's 2011 film La Piel Que Habito.

the mistake is that the 2011 album is a compilation and not a studio/recording album. (unsigned) --Leahtwosaints (talk) 20:55, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Take out promotional language[edit]

I edited the article to take out some language that read like a first draft of album liner notes rather than a serious encyclopedia biography. For example, I removed this passage:

Trying to speculate where Buika's professional career will lead is a mystery because, when it comes to Buika there is no script. She is a continuous flow, without interruptions. Her new music will taste like the old in their musical notes, their timing, streaming. Clearly, Buika is here to stay.

I think Buika is a talented performer, but this sort of language is merely an attempt at some kind of poetic celebration of her talent that violates Wikipedia's NPOV policy. Strictly speaking, moreover, parts of this passage are either untrue or meaningless. What does it mean to say she is "without interruptions"? Does that mean she doesn't sleep? What does it mean to say her new music will taste like the old? Is this saying that her new music lacks originality? How does music "taste" like something? And what does it mean to say she is "here to stay"? Where is "here" and how long is she going to stay? This statement is either a prediction about where she will be (or how she will be regarded) in the future, or else it is adulation from a fan or from her marketing department. Regardless, it just doesn't belong in an encyclopedia entry. --Sheldon Rampton (talk) 06:34, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
