Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

Colombian superstar Shakira's first English-language disc, Laundry Service, carries the pointed credit "Entire Album Produced by Shakira." That might be a signal to U.S. fans who helped two of her previous discs go platinum under the media radar--a sign that this planned breakthrough has more to offer than the input of a score of image makers and outside writers. And it does; even the occasional clunky lyric comes directly from her overflowing heart. Laundry Service's meld of danceable pop and rockier ideas and textures follows the similar path of the singer-songwriter's previous work. Indeed, for all its high-end production values, the record is ultimately one of the least glossy crossover vehicles imaginable. Despite an occasional lean toward Celine Dion territory ("Underneath Your Clothes"), it has a freshness that's sure to win over new listeners even after the first single, the sly "Whenever, Wherever," has reached the saturation point. While still not fully formed as an artist, she's getting close to something of her own--something that may flower after she dumps the vocal Alanis-isms. For now, it's still a pleasure to watch her grow. --Rickey Wright

To all those who don't like Shakira listen to this CD.
I used to hate Shakira and all her music.
But this Cd is like...............WOW!!!!!!!!!!
I totally loved Shakira after this, she has nice upbeat songs and sad slow ones plus she is awesome at portugese and spanish. This CD is worth your money.
Shakira is the best.....that's all there is to it.
The Cd has words inside it so you can read the music and it has awesome pictures.

This cd is brilliant, Shak knew how to mix all different kind of styles, and she used her voice with everything it has.
In contradicti to other,s i think the lyrics aren't bad becuz of her 'bad english'. Her english is very well, and the lyrics are just different from those simple Britney-lyrics. Shakira uses metaphors, strange rhymes etc. Very original.
Shakira is brilliant in writing music. She knows every instrument, and she is involved to every instrument used. Whenevr wherever has brazilian drums and a panflute. Underneath your clothes, is a quite acoustic song with instruments like horns and trumpets in it, Objection is a pop/rock/tango song, one of the most original songs on the cd. Rules is kinda 'back to the 70s' song, the one is a beautiful rockballad with strings in it (my fav shaki song). Ready for the good times is an '80s disco song, but with cool guitars, Fool is a quite bluesy rockballad and great lyrics! Te dejo Madrid is a cool rock song, with a cool harmonica, and ik makes you wanna sing and dance... and the lyrics are very funny! Poem to a horse is a rock song with trumpets and greta lyrics. Eyes like yours is an english version of Shakira's Ojos asi (1998). and seurte and te aviso te anuncio are spanish versions of Whenever... and Objection.
Ver original, and totally NO latin Britney!

This album is written well for the first album sung in English by Shakira. All the English songs are good except for Ready for the good times and the English version of Ojos Asi(Eyes Like Yours).In Spanish Ojos Asi has more of a fast beat, it is much better. Que Me Quedes Tu, Te Dejo Madrid, and the Spanish versions of Whenever Wherever, and Objection Tango are better in Spanish. Overall it's a good CD and I would recommend you buy this Cd before you buy an all Spanish Cd because you can learn some of the songs on this Cd en espanol.

Yes, like many people have admitted in their reviews, I too mistook Shakira as a Britney wannabe at first. But "Whenever, Wherever" was just catchy enough that I eventually was compelled to give her a chance. And am I glad I did, because Laundry Service is a fantastic pop album. First off, Shakira has a great voice, powerful and emotive. And unlike most teen idols, Shakira made this her album, writing and producing it in its entirety. And she shows her talents extend beyond her amazing vocal ability, crafting some great, energetic music you can't sit still through, like "Whenever, Wherever," "Te Dejo Madrid," and "Objection (Tango)," both of which are here in English and Spanish verisons. She also shows herself just as talented crafting ballads like "Underneath Your Clothes" and "The One." Even the tracks that didn't quite work for me are still interesting; I might not really like "Eyes Like Yours," but I still respect her for blending Persian influences into Rock and Roll so seamlessly. This is a great album, and I look forward to exploring the rest of Shakira's catalog.

This woman just fell off the face of the earth didn't she? She must be shaking in her boots seeing how Enrique's latest cd bombed,(and rightly so), and Ricky Martin had already seen his day in the American market when this album came out. "Whenever, Wherever" makes my ass shake!! I LOVE that song! "Fool" is really nice, as is "Poem to a Horse" no matter how absurd that title is. I wish that there were no Spanish language songs on this album...I don't think it's fair that I have to pay money to hear someone speak a language that I can't understand. Sorry that's how I feel. No matter how un-PC it is. I'm not talking about the Spanish version of "Whenever, Wherever" I'm talking about the other 2 spanish songs that are on the cd. So next time out for Shakira here is my advice , IMHO of course...
1. Drop the Spanish songs on American albums!
2. Lose the silly song titles "Objection (Tango)"..what???
3. Keep it up beat..really it sounds like you have a hard time singing ballads!!!
4. More songs like "Whenever..." and "Ready for the Good Times"

Now I have to admit it: I WAS on of those people who bought "Laundry Service" then worked backwards. But it turned out that I really fell in love with "Pies Descalzos" and "¿Dónde Están Los Ladrones?". So my opinion of "Laundry Service" is really coming from the background of those two previous albums.
Despite what some have said, I really do think that Shakira keeps the same type of metaphorical sarcasm and deep meanings that were present on "Pies" and "Ladrones," just not to quite as high a degree. "Poem To A Horse" is a great example of that. Also, "Que Me Quedes Tú" is very eloquently worded and meaningful.
Again, like on her other albums, she has a wide range of musical styles to tickle your ears' tastebuds. "Objection (Tango)" is a mix of rock and tango (of course...), "Whenever, Wherever" has a tropical/world feel to it, "Ready For The Good Times" is remeniscent of a disco-type sound (maybe?) and "Poem To A Horse" has miniscule traces of light ska woven throughout it.
This is my only disappointment about the album (and it's a BIG ONE!): I'm very sad that Shakira decided to translate "Ojos Así." I think the Spanish version from "Dónde Están Los Ladrones?" was fine alone and that the English version is...I cringe to say it...horrible. I would not in a million years call anything else of Shakira's 'horrible,' except perhaps her Portugese remixes of her first album...but that's another story. :)
