This review is from: Fijacion Oral Vol.1 [CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
This album, unlike so many others really is a progression from her other stuff. Never someone to stick with a successful formula, or rest on her laurels, Shakira has come up with this wonderfully diverse album, which though short, emcompasses a plethora of moods, of musical styles, and as ever incredible vocal ability. At times you are transported to an almost an indiginous or raw Andean chant, blended with African acapella, through to European, 20s style. Ranging from touching girliness and vulnerability of her lyrics and voice to haunting power, passion and fire which reaches to your centre, her vocals genuinely filled with emotion, combined with her immense musical capability continue to amaze.
