Format:Audio CD
Shakira est l'une des rares artistes à avoir inclu ses clip dans ses disques. Je peux pire bravo déjà. Ensuite, les albums sont très bien. Je peux dire que cet album en espagnol est son meilleur jusqu'à date. Très belle présentation aussi. Je suis un fan comblé.

Only a couple of songs are good. Downloading only the songs to my liking would have been more satisfying.

5.0 out of 5 stars FIVE STAR SET, but how many times are we supposed to keep buying the same basic item???? Jan. 3 2007
By P. Eisenman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
There are TWO parts to this review. First, we'll deal with the actual item--ORAL FIXATION VOLUMES 1 & 2 w/BONUS DVD. As a set, it's the best of both world's. You get the excellent FIVE STAR Fijacion Oral, Vol. 1 with the excellent "classic" Shakira style tracks NO and DIA ESPECIAL, plus the quirky LA TORTURA duet. You also get the "improved" ORAL FIXATION, Volume 2, with the added HIPS DON'T LIE, bringing an otherwise so-so THREE STAR CD up to FOUR STARS. Finally, you get the DVD BONUS which includes FIVE GREAT VIDEOS and three MTV LIVE performances. FIVE STARS for the video disc. So, do the math 5+4+5/3=close enough to FIVE STARS to give the whole package a FIVE STAR RATING!

Now for part two of this review. Let's see, I NOW have THREE COPIES OF F.O. Vol 1 and TWO copies of O.F. Vol 2! Thankfully, I DIDN'T buy the "improved" O.F. Vol 2 w/Hips Don't Lie as a stand alone CD or else I'd have THREE OF EACH! UGH! Don't get me wrong. I REALLY LIKE Shakira. There's nothing else quite like her. Musically, she's UNIQUE. NOBODY will ever be able to duplicate her vocal antics or even come close. She's a once in all eternity singer! And, obviously, I eagerly await and buy up her material, but, quite frankly, I'm starting to feel like I'm being played! At what point do we start thinking that her label is milking our wallets for all we're worth??? I wasn't TOO annoyed at buying Laundry Service and Laundry Service--Washed and Dried or even buying F.O. Vol 1 for the car and the Dualdisc for at home use, but really, it's starting to get just a bit ridiculous, don't you think??? I'm glad I dragged my feet about getting O.F. Vol. 2 w/Hips Don't Lie and that this SET w/bonus DVD came out before I sank another ten or fifteen bucks in yet ANOTHER version of this same basic package!!

Anyways! Again, as a set, this is a FIVE STAR PACKAGE especially for the DVD! If you're just starting to acquire SHAKIRA CD's, buy this attractively priced SET and MAYBE consider the DUALDISC F.O. Vol. 1 for the extras noted by the other reviewers (English lyric translations, Video extras, etc.), but skip the rest of the "varieties" of this album! And there's a "Target" variety, too??? Good thing I DIDN'T hear about that or I'd have ANOTHER copy of this same album! DOH! Maybe someday those "early releases" might be worth something as collectibles! But in the meantime, what am I going to do with ALL THESE DUPLICATES I NOW HAVE????

Let's hope that the next "NEW" product from Shakira isn't just another retread! Give us something that's actually DIFFERENT. PLEASE!!! Here's an idea to get the ball rolling--how about a COMPLETE music video collection 1996-2007 DVD!!! I'd BUY THAT HAPPILY and NOT GRIPE AT ALL!

5.0 out of 5 stars Shaki's "Oral Fixation", the COMPLETE album!!! Dec 12 2006
By Larry Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Really, this package gets a 4 1/2 from me...why not a perfect 5?? Because the timing of releasing this package is way off, and looks like a Sony BMG ploy to get Christmas sales, it could have had more on there, and the packaging is basically: take the existing Volume 1 and Volume 2, throw it into a box (albeit an ATTRACTIVE box), add an exclusive DVD and bingo. If you didn't have the 2 volumes before, by all means, buy this package. If you want the DVD, buy it, but if you have both discs and don't care about the DVD, stay away. This SHOULD have come out the same time as the redone version of "Volume 2" with "Hips Don't Lie", not now.

To me, what would have made this a perfect 5 is: one, the disc of Volume 1 SHOULD have been the DualDisc, not the regular barebones disc. The reason why is because the DVD side of the dualdisc has a fun segment of Alejandro Sanz interviewing Shaki, and it was basically an excuse for the two of them to pal around, act silly and make jokes. There are subtitles so you can be in on the fun. There is also the making of the "La Tortura" vidclip, and footage of Shaki on the beach hanging out with local kids. The best part of the DVD side is that you can play the album with English translations, so you can follow along and understand what it is she is singing on this artful Volume 1. In this box, you get the album itself, which is fine, and the foldout poster, but I miss the DVD stuff from the DualDisc. ALSO, they could have added on the 3 live bonus tracks from the Target exclusive edition, making the disc 15 tracks.

As for Volume 2, I really love it, but again, they maybe could have added on the remix of "Don't Bother" from the Target edition of the first pressing, pre "Hips Don't Lie", as well as remixes of "Hips" from the import singles. Otherwise, fine, everything else is there, full artwork in the foldout poster, and the tracklisting of the 2nd edition, with that edition's trackorder, including "Hips" and the Spanglish version of "La Tortura".

As for the DVD, it's good to have, because it has all 5 vidclips from both volumes, the clips of "No" and "Dia De Enera" were not on an official release, maybe an import CD single from South America, but that's it. Everything else, the other 3 clips and 3 live performances, except for a remix video of "Don't Bother", were on the bonus DVD from Target's special edition of the 2nd Volume 2. Like I said before, to make this a 5-star release, the COULD have added onto the DVD the video footage from the DualDisc of Volume 1 as well as the remix clip of "Don't Bother". Instead, it's a good, but not complete, 31-minute DVD, oh well.

My suggestion??? Get this package and replace the regular Volume 1 with the DualDisc, or buy the DualDisc and keep both, as many people have problems playing the DualDisc in their car stereos, and you can play the regular disc in those players.

The best part of this release??? You can play the complete "Oral Fixation" in a row, and as good as both parts are separately, it's BETTER as a complete album!!! The 2 parts compliment each other like you wouldn't believe. To me, it's a work of art, eclectic, melodic, catchy, meaningful...everything from bossa nova ("Obtener Un Si"), Latin pop ("No", "En Tus Pupiles/Something", "Dreams For Plans"), new wave ("La Pared"...possibly my fave track on the whole set, in new wave and acoustic piano versions, the punky B-52's-ish "Escondite Ingles", and "Hey You"), heavy dance pop ("Lo Imprescindible"), glamish rock & roll ("Costume Makes The Clown"), slightly-but-not-TOO-commercial catchy as hell powerpop ("Don't Bother", "Animal City"), chanting over rocking pop and dance ("How Do You Do", "Timor"), cool collaborations ("Hips Don't Lie", "Illegal", "La Tortura", "Dia Especial/The Day & The Time") and much more...it's a 25-track album!!! Some tracks have English and Spanish versions that compliment each other, but overall, there are 20 standalone songs, and it cements Shaki's rep as an artful bilingual female pop force of nature with a rock & roll heart (the acclaimed, widespread Rick Rubin DID executively produce this whole set, after the Dixie Chicks, Neil Diamond and Johnny Cash), and I don't care if we have to wait 5 years for her next release. It will be great and worth the wait.

Shakira rocks!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Nice Compilation, But Still Missing Things... Dec 19 2006
By Kyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This package nicely compiles all of the Oral Fixation songs into one package. I enjoy all the songs on it, some which are really fun songs (La Tortura, Hips Dont Lie, Timor, Animal City, Hey You) and others with are nice and mellow (No, Illegal, Day & The Time). However some things could have been added to this set to make it essential. Oral Fixation Volume 1 should be in its Dualdisc form, with all the interview,behind the scene features, and translations intact. Some features that were available on the Target Edition of Oral Fixation Volume 2 are added here. However some videos that were available on the Target Edition are missing, such as Obtener Un Sí (MTV 5 Star Live) and Dont Bother (Remix Video). The DVD is also not complete, since it doesn't have the official Illegal or La Pared music videos. Hopefully someday there will be a DVD release of all of Shakira's videos dating back to 1996. If you haven't purchased any of the Shakira Oral Fixation albums yet, I recomend getting this one. But if you have both, it might be better to wait for a DVD collection of all of her videos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Packaged but still missing all the videos and songs Aug. 13 2007
By Alonso J. Pacheco - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ok, you already know the product: FIJACION ORAL 1 y ORAL FIXATION2. FO1 gets 5 stars from me and OF2 gets 4 stars (only because they added Hips dont lie and La Tortura remix). The packaged itself gets a 5 stars rating.

However, if youre planning to buy this pack considering this is the complete Oral fixation project think again: The DVD is missing her latest videos: LA PARED, LAS DE LA INTUICION & ILLEGAL. Plus, theres a english version of Las de la Intuicion not included on any of the cds that comes with this package.

As I said before get this is you want it for what it is, but if u really want the whole project you wont get it with this pack. Hope that helps :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A great package for any Shaki fan! Feb. 3 2011
By 683 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you don't have any of the Oral Fixation albums, then you need to get this box set of both albums (Vol. 2 is the revised edition with Hips Don't Lie), along with an extra DVD with 5 music videos and 3 live performances. It's amazing and worth every cent, especially if it's Shakira.

Fijacion Oral, Vol. 1- This is a great and diverse album. It starts with "En Tus Pupuilas", which is a great acoustic ballad that's soft and has an amazing French part. After that, "La Pared" comes. It has great music, along with the chorus, and then there's "La Tortura", probably the biggest song in Latin history, and the song definitely deserves that title. "Obtener Un Si" sounds like an amazing song that could have been a huge hit in the 60s. It's one of the songs that make the album very diverse. Next is "Dia Especial", which I really like, because it's a nice soft rock song. "Escondite Ingles" is a very up-tempo and vampiristic rock song, which is kind of like a part of rock music that's she's never done, and I like it. "No" is another amazing, sad, and soft standout, which gains a lot of tempo at the end. "Las de la Intuicion" is one of my favorites because of it's catchy electronic music, that's unlike any electronica in the mainstream. "Dia de Enero" is definitely my favorite song on the album though. It's very a very soft song and it's the ultimate highlight of the album. "Lo Imprescindible" is also a great song. I love the German part of the song. The song kind of sounds like industrial electronica. The final two songs "La Pared [Version Acoustica]" and "La Tortura [Shaketon Remix]" are also very good.

My top 3 favorites:
1. Dia de Enero
2. Las de la Intuicion
3. La Tortura feat. Alejandro Sanz

Oral Fixation, Vol. 2- This album is more on a rock-pop side, which I like a lot. "How Do You Do" is a very amazing way to begin this album that has very laid back verses and a great rock chorus. "Illegal" is next and it's a very catchy and relaxed song. Every obviosuly knows the song "Hips Don't Lie", but after a couple years of this song, I still love it, since Shakira songs never get old to me. "Animal City" is kind of like Latin-infused rock, with all of that percussion and it's a very nice blend. The lead single from the album "Don't Bother" is so amazing and it deifnitely deserved more mainstream attention. "The Day and the Time" is the English version of "Dia Especial" on the 1st OF, and I;m glad that it's on this album. One of my absolute favorite songs from Sahkira is on this album, "Dreams for Plans", because everybody could relate to this song, and the beat is also absolutely amazing. "Hey You" is also a very unique and creative song with a very heavy rock edge with a chorus that I love, and then another one of my favorites "Your Embrace" is on this album. I love the acoustic and orchestral music to this song. I also really love the lyrics. "Costume Makes the Clown" is also an amazing song with nice and up-close lyrics. "Something" is another English version of a song off the first OF, "En Tus Pupilas". I love this song, and then there's the closing song (besides the bonus track at the end), "Timor", a very political song, with influences of pop-rock and electro-disco in it. I absolutely love it. The Spanglish version of "La Tortura" is also great.

My top 3 favorites:
1. Hips Don't Lie feat Wyclef Jean
2. Dreams for Plans
3. Timor

The videos are also amazing:
1. La Tortura feat. Alejandro Sanz
2. Don't Bother
3. No feat. Gustavo Cerati
4. Hips Don't Lie feat. Wyclef Jean
5. Dia de Enero
(MTV 5 Star Live Performances)
1. Hey You
2. Illegal
3.La Tortura

My top 3 favorite videos:
1. Hips Don't Lie
2. Dia de Enero
3. La Tortura feat. Alejandro Sanz
