Another superb album from Shakira,
By A Customer
This review is from: Fijacion Oral Vol.1 [CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
If you've heard La Tortura, chances are you're probably planning on buying this album on the merits of that fantastic track alone - and so you should but don't be disappointed with your purchase when you listen to it for the first time. There are no other tracks like La Tortura on this album (apart from the remix obviously!) but then Shakira isn't one for releasing songs or albums that sound like each other. This is typically eclectic and passionate Shakira and the album will grow and grow on you, not least with the intensity of songs such as La Pared and the tragic but brilliant "No". Other highlights include Para Obtener Un Si, which sounds like it's from a different era altogether; Lo Imprescindible; En Tus Pupilas; Dia Especial; and the sweet Dia De Enero. Shakira is so refreshing in a world of manufactured pop. I highly recommend this album.
