A fantastic album!!,
This review is from: Fijacion Oral Vol.1 [CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
After the success of Laundry Service a few years ago I was wondering whether Shakira had already reached her "peak" as so many artists do, and was set to get worse. How wrong I was! Even though this is an entirely Spanish-language album (me not speaking a great deal of Spanish), I think that it matches "Laundry Service" in excellence, if not exceeds it. There is so much variety in her music; she includes many different styles, rythms and moods in this album: from the beautiful ballads "No" and "La Pared"(the acoustic version is fantastic!) to fast rock numbers like "Escondite Ingles" to the upbeat, lively masterpiece that is "La Tortura" helped by the addition of Alejandro Sanz's vocals.
This is not just an example of excellent vocal talent but also a vibrant show of musical variety and competence. Shakira is truly an adept and fantastic musician; buy this album to see for yourself!
