Progreat mixture, very varied and catchy songs

Conssome dull songs

Shakira is a young singer from South America, she has been singing since a very young age but has only started releasing singles worldwide recently, she impressed everyone with her worldwide debut 'Whenever Wherever' but it isn't a debut for her just the world. Her style of music is a mixture of...

For Christmas this year I got the special edition of Shakira’s album ‘Laundry Service.’ It came in plush box case and underneath was the usual case you would see in the shop. I am not going to give you information on Shakira (like I did with Liberty X) as it is not really to do...

Yes, Shakira’s debut English album may be some months old now, but it is still one of the successes of the last two years, and still selling well. Proof of this is the fact that theediscerning’s copy went within hours on amazon’s marketplace. So at risk of losing mucho street cred by posting this...

A friend introduced me to Shakira's music around 4 years ago after finding Latin artists such as Gloria Estefan and Elvis Crespo lurking amongst my CD collection and told me then that one day this girl would be a huge international star if she ever released an English language album. With multi...

“Sassy Shakira Sings Sexily”

published 07/06/2002

ProGreat cd, a little bit different

ConsSome weak songs, a bit like Eurovision

Believe me, I want to hate Shakira ("woman full of grace") for being so beautiful, slim and successful (I take comfort in the old pictures of her!). It's just that there's something endearing about her lyrics. If I had to describe her style I'd say she was a kooky mic of Alanis Morissette, Gwen...

ProFantastic album

ConsNeed to brush up on your Spanish

It is an unfortunate fact of life for the many thousands of talented latin musicians that, if you want to make it on a worldwide scale, you have to learn to sing in English. This was powerfully illustrated in the late 1990s by Ricky Martin, and in 2001 when Shakira's third studio album - but only...

ConsA bit too much pop

Please excuse the title, it's a bit of a theme. Anyhow, Shakira, is a musical artist, she has a good deep soulful voice, plenty of kick and vitality. Despite having a deep voice, she is more than capable of reaching those high notes when she has to. Laundry service, which is her first officially...

“SHAKE IT SHAKERA!!”

published 15/09/2004

ProVery unique style

ConsHard to understand the foreign lyrics

Shakira is a very beautiful and talented young woman. At first you may think she looks like any other pop star but when you hear her deep vocals, you can't help but be in awe. Originally from abroad, she brought out the smash hit single 'whenever wherever' in the UK that made even the most boring...

This review is about Shakira's debut album Pies Descalzos. However I would of put it in the correct place had this product been on the Ciao site. I have read raving reviews on Shakira's second album Dónde Están Los Ladrones and personally I have to agree. However, her debut album is slightly...

ConsNot enough of her Colombian heritage in the music.

I must say, I really do like Shakira and her previous albums. I've been a fan of hers for years. That said, I didn't like Laundry Service at all, except for Whenever, Wherever (Suerte), and one of the ballads. It's Shakira's attempt to "cross-over" and fit into "American" culture. However, she...
