All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Cooling her heels while crafting a follow-up to her hot dance makeover Loose, Nelly Furtado released Mi Plan, her first full-length Spanish album, in the fall of 2009. As it turns out, Mi Plan comes much closer to Furtado's previous music than Loose, but she's retained many lessons from her time with Timbaland, giving this a much stronger rhythmic foundation than her first two albums which this otherwise resembles in sound and structure. Nelly still sounds vaguely like a modern hippie, fusing together cultures with a hazily spiritual undertow, something that works well on an album like this, which is pitched at a Latin audience but never feels like a niche ...

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Cooling her heels while crafting a follow-up to her hot dance makeover Loose, Nelly Furtado released Mi Plan, her first full-length Spanish album, in the fall of 2009. As it turns out, Mi Plan comes much closer to Furtado's previous music than Loose, but she's retained many lessons from her time with Timbaland, giving this a much stronger rhythmic foundation than her first two albums which this otherwise resembles in sound and structure. Nelly still sounds vaguely like a modern hippie, fusing together cultures with a hazily spiritual undertow, something that works well on an album like this, which is pitched at a Latin audience but never feels like a niche throwaway by a superstar. Instead, this is assured and cohesive, holding together better than her muddled sophomore effort Folklore but having a similar range, bouncing elegantly from barbed, alt rock guitars to electro synths to grand, gorgeous ballads. In fact, it says quite a bit about Nelly Furtado's ambitions and skill when her Spanish detour winds up being arguably her strongest album yet.
New York Times - Jon Pareles
Portuguese-Canadian songwriter Nelly Furtado has decided to put out an album of supremely catchy, hemisphere-hopping Spanish-language pop, Mi Plan.... Ms. Furtado and her collaborators treated this album as an opportunity to try pop versions of regional styles and to work with some of Latin pop’s leading figures. “Bajo Otra Luz” (“Under Other Light”), written by the Mexican-American singer Julieta Venegas and featuring Ms. Venegas and the Spanish rapper La Mala Rodríguez, splits the difference between reggaetón and cumbia rhythms; “Vacación” is closer to straightforward cumbia, with Ms. Venegas on accordion. “Como Lluvia” (“Like Rain”), written and sung with the Dominican superstar Juan Luis Guerra, has the lilt of Dominican pop-bachata, while “Fuerte” (“Strong”) is almost techno-flamenco, with an arresting guest vocal by the Afro-Spanish singer Concha Buika.
