Where Are The Thieves? is arguably the finest and most essential album that she recorded in the 1990s. The 2 bonus tracks are different versions of 'Ciega, Sordomuda' (12 Inch Full Mix & Radio Edit).
Rock-pop dance queen Shakira from Colombia is back with a sophomore album that pretty much mines the same field as her debut, with predictably similar sounds. "Ciega, Sordamuda" has the same urgent dance beat reminiscent of "Estoy Aquí," the monster club hit from her debut, Pies Descalzos. The singer/songwriter, whose whispery, quavering vocals sound like a cross between Alanis Morrisette and Dolores O'Riordan of the Cranberries, wrote or cowrote all 11 tracks. Surprisingly, considering that noted producer ace Emilio Estefan is at the helm here, there is very little variance here from her debut. The tunes are mostly either rock-edged dance numbers or reflective melancholy ballads; the best include the echoey "Tú" and the meandering "Sombra de Ti." --Ramiro Burr

Shakira shows on every one of her albums that shes in control, and knows what shes doing. Her music can capture you in an instant. Either you love it or you have a favorite song... or you just plain dont like her which is rediculous cause why else would you be here?
For those english speakers who are new to her spanish lyrics, I recommend Donde Estan Los Ladrones (DELL) first before Pies Descalzos, Sueños Blancos... But honestly, either is really a good introduction...
Her earlier albums titled: Magia and Peligro, were albums in which Shakira herself didnt have much control over in regards to how the music sounded or the lyrics... which many believe why these 2 albums weren't as successful as Pies Descalzos, DELL and Laundry Service...
NEWS - Shakira's new album is rumored to be released in Aug. 2004 including song titles "Love is a Stranger" and "Bad Weather" (also rumored as the album title). Either way if these are true or not, look forward to her new release for sure in 2004, and her new DVD coming in February.
Where do I even begin to describe this CD? How about with its variety. One of the biggest things that makes Shakira so different from all the rest is her eclectic sense of musical style. Her first love is rock music, but she stays true to her Latin roots (specifically Colombian) while exploring other cultures' sounds as well (the Mexican feel of "Ciega, Sordomuda" is energetic and the enchanting and adventurous sensuality of "Ojos Así" leaves me breathless.)
The second thing that sets Shakira apart from the average artist is her passion for speaking metaphorically. Each of these songs, no matter how 'simple' the message may seem to be, is worded eloquently and thought provokingly. I especially love the passionately enamored honesty that "Tú" offers, and also enjoy the fiery anger vibes that radiate from "Si Te Vas."
If you're hesitating buying this album because you already have Laundry Service, DON'T THINK IT WILL SPOIL IT FOR YOU! It will only deepen your love for Shakira's words and sounds. And if you're debating buying it because you don't speak Spanish, DON'T LET THAT CHEAT YOU OUT OF THIS IRREPLACEABLE AND ESSENTIAL ALBUM EITHER!
Ciega Sordamuda 10/10 - an uptempo song about how the person she loves is making her feel.
Si Te Vas 10/10 - a more rock based song about what she will do to a man if he betrays her.
Moscas en la Casa 10/10 - a slow, calming song about being without the person you love.
No Creo 9/10 - a loud in-your-face song about how she want to devote her life to the person she loves.
Inevitable 10/10 - another rock based song about her confessing her imperfections
Octavo Dia 10/10 - a great upbeat yet relaaxing song about God and the mess that the world is in.
Que Vuelvas 10/10 - an electronic pop song about her wanting her lover to come back to her.
Tu 8/10 - a slow song about how she never wants her lover to leave and how she views him as perfect.
Donde Estan Los Ladrones 10/10 - an guitar-based song about how no matter who the people are, they can have a dark side.
Sombra De Ti 10/10 - a soulfoul song with spine-tingling vocals about the person she loves being on her mind.
Ojos Asi 10/10 - the ultimate song like nothing you've heard before about her fascination and commitment to the person she loves.
Estoy Aqui 10/10 - another upbeat song abut how she will wait for the person she loves to come to her.
All that i can say is that this album is fantastic and everone should own it. Happy listening!
1. Ciega Sordomuda-This song proves that Shakira tries different things with her music and can shove off comparisons to other artists. Hear this song, and never again can you compare her to Britney Spears.
2. Si Te Vas-This is a great rock song where rather than depressing over lost love she gets angry and fights back with humor. She tells it like it is with the line (translated)- "Every new broom sweeps well, later you will see that the bristles are worn"
3. Moscas en la Casa-Beautiful love ballad with a very powerful and transparent feeling
4. No Creo-The happy song of the album. It's a very fun song that you could never get tired of hearing...it makes you smile
5. Inevitable-Listen to the song and you'll see that no description can be made. This is the perfect song to listen to no matter what mood you're in and you can feel what she's feeling
6. Octavo Dia-This song is holy. It's so beautiful and as Shakira sings the story of the creation of life. God works hard to create the world and when he takes a walk through space we create a hellish mess. She has a lot to say and in this song she says it all.
7. Que Vuelvas-This is a great song that's fun to listen to in the car.
8. Tu-What can you say about this song? It is SO beautiful and when I first heard it...two seconds into the song I could tell it was going to be the most beautiful song I've ever heard.
9. Donde Estan los Ladrones?-Definitely worthy of the album title. She has power in her voice and you can tell she means what she's saying.Read more ›
