5.0 out of 5 stars Shakira's finest moment by far. 30 July 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Listening to this album makes me despair at the timidity of mainstream British radio and music television. By outright refusing to play anything in any other language than English, they have missed out on a real treat.

Shakira may be best known here in the UK for her English language hits "Whenever Wherever", "Underneath Your Clothes", "Hips Don't Lie" etc., but it is when she sings in her native Spanish that she really shines as an artist. The lyrics that frequently sound awkward in English sound poetic in Spanish, and her delivery is generally stronger and more confident.

Dónde Están los Ladrones (Where are the Thieves) is probably Shakira's finest moment yet - I say probably as I haven't heard Pies Descalzos or her impossible-to-find earlier material yet. But it is musically superior and more interesting than either of her English language albums, and it outshines Fijación Oral too.

Highlights of the album include the powerful, guitar-driven ballad "Inevitable", the title track, "No Creo (I Don't Believe)", "Ciega, Sordomuda (Deaf, Dumb and Blind)" and "Moscas En La Casa (Flies in the House)".

This release includes two bonus tracks - Shakira's early hit "Estoy Aquí (I Am Here)" (a slightly different version to that found on her greatest hits), and a remix of the single "Ojos Así (Eyes Like Those)". Although these are a pleasant addition to the album, they do not justify buying it again if you already have the version without bonus tracks, as the remixes are very similar to the original versions.

If you really enjoy this album, it may be worth considering buying Shakira's MTV Unplugged album too - she performs every song from this album with the exception of "Que Vuelvas". The performances on the unplugged album often vary quite widely from the versions here, so it is a fresh take on the same material.

Right. Lets get this straight. This album is bleedin' fantastic. Released less than 6 years ago, it's the kind of pop music you'd kill to see on the radio these days, especially when we're subjected to boring mediocrity like Black Eyed Peas, Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera. From the quirky cathiness of "Ciego Sordomuda" and the sweet balladry of "Moscas En La Casa" to the gonzo pop perfection of "Ojos Asi". I can't even begin to tell you just how lively this record is. Shakira's music is eccentric and colourful like Bjork and yet at the same time glossy and accessible like Michael Jackson or Britney Spears. The combination of these two traits results in one of the most pleasurable dance-pop albums I've ever heard. Make no mistake, this is right up there with Madonna's best work. It's just so frustrating how the completely talentless and boring Jennifer Lopez has proved to be a much greater latin crossover success. Are people really that bothered that the lyrics are in Spanish? If they are then it's their loss.

5.0 out of 5 stars dont miss this! 2 Dec 2006
By Joe
Format:Audio CD
How many supposedly great albums have you spent good money on, from some reviewers recommendation, only to be played a couple of times and left in the rack to act as a graphical illustration of the hype and hollowness of the Uk music scene. How many foreign language albums have you bought for six quid out of curiosity and wore out the lens on your cd player with?

Take a chance on this, I have spent more time listening to this over the last year than I have mainstream radio, even though I dont understand a word (although the same goes for radio). This is captivating and pushes all the right musical buttons from the insistently rocky 'Si te vas' to the soaring melody of 'no creo' through the peerless 'Tu' to the bittersweet beauty of 'sombra de ti' and all the other gems in between. It is such a shame that Shakira gets so little UK airplay singing in English let alone Spanish.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great find! 18 Aug 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Funnily enough I only bought this album to help the kids and I learn Spanish (educational type albums are SO inane).I chose it because a reviewer pointed out her rock influence which should keep us all happy. Thinking it'd be Ok but nothing more, I was totally blown away. I LOVE THIS ALBUM!!I'm now gonna buy her other CDs and hope they're as good.
My husband has fallen in love with her and, despite the fact he's not learning Spanish, has the CD on all the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars We need more Spanish Singers ! 4 Nov 2004
By Paul
Format:Audio CD
I heard one of Shakira's spanish songs on MTV a few weeks ago and decided to buy a CD to hear more and am I glad. I liked Shakiras English version songs but not enough to buy the CD but in Spanish she is fantastic, even though I don't have a clue what she is singing about.
Buy it - you will not regret it. So lively, so many tempos, so wonderful, so spanish / latin - excellent !!!!! You just wanna dance

5.0 out of 5 stars An album not to be dismissed! 27 April 2002
By R. P. Greenhalgh VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I know what you are thinking, and I was sceptical too.
I like 'Laundry Service', and happen to think that 'Suerte' the Spanish version of the hit single 'Whenever, Wherever' is way better than the version in English. On the other hand I think 'Objection (Tango)' is magnificent!
I don't speak Spanish, and therefore wondered if a whole album might be too much. I bought 'Donde Estan Los Ladrones' anyway, and I'm very glad I did!
Please let me digress for a moment. Shakira has often been compared to Britney in the popular press, but that is unfair to both of them. Britney sings songs written for her, and usually does so well.
Skakira writes her own lyrics and music, so she can set her own musical agenda, and her albums therefore comprise many influences without seeming disconnected. Without the added distraction of two languages, this is perhaps more obvious on 'Dónde Están Los Ladrones'. It may seem a strange comparison, but it is the same sort of accomplishment that Dido achieved with 'No Angel'. Both are brilliant, but not directly comparable!
My favourite tracks on the album? Dónde Están Los Ladrones (up-beat, as summer beckons), and the bitter 'Inevitable'! Both made me reach for a Spanish-English dictionary. My least favourite is 'Ojos así' which appears in two versions on this album, and again in English as 'Eyes like yours' on the album 'Laundry Service'.
