NEW VERSION of Oral Fixation Vol. 2 that features two new bonus tracks 'Hips Don't Lie' featuring Wyclef Jean and 'La Tortura'. Epic. 2006.
The English-language Oral Fixation Vol. 2 finds Shakira reclaiming some of the bite she showcased on 1998's smashing Donde Estan Los Ladrones? The Colombian rock goddess is making up for lost time: this is her second disc of new material in 2005. It's quite a feat, considering the four-year gap since Laundry Service, her scattershot, English-language debut album. Oral Fixation Vol. 2 is more mature and better focused than the spin-cycle pop of that 2001 disc. Kick-off track "How Do You Do" starts with a haunting reading of "The Lord's Prayer" before launching into a risky questioning of faith and religion. Shakira touches on the highs and lows of celebrity on a trio of tracks--the bittersweet "Your Embrace," the guitar-driven "Costume Makes the Clown," and the disco-fied, politically charged "Timor." Selfish men and failed relationships--two oft-mentioned topics of interest--anchor much of Oral Fixation Vol. 2. First single "Don't Bother" is a bitter ode to strength, jealousy, and survival; "Dreams for Plans" is a wistful collage of relationship memories; and Carlos Santana slides a sexy guitar riff under soulful standout track "Illegal." The purple haze of Prince hangs over "Animal City," one of the disc's most inventive moments. It's a free-wheeling melange of rock riffs, electronic accents, mariachi horns and confident vocals. Two songs from Fijacion Oral Vol. 1 make appearances--the somber "Something" and "The Day and the Time," which improves greatly upon its Spanish counterpart. Vol. 1, while at times enjoyable, was a portrait of a gifted artist struggling to keep her footing and retain her confidence. Oral Fixation Vol. 2 finds Shakira embracing the eclectic beauty within. It's a wonderful sound. --Joey Guerra

This c.d also has a few interesting "Hidden Bonuses". The first- for you North Americans...You get to see her tummy on the front cover. Purchasers in the Middle East have it covered up by more bushes. For you fans, who have bought either of the Oral Fixations- lucky you, getting two remixes in her Virtual lcub (with more to come). She also has, like the official review has stated, brought back two songs from the first Fijacion Oral- with different lyrics than the old translations, and new lyrics with THEIR translations. If that doesn't make sense- I'll make it easier on your tired brains. With ONE tune, and TWO languages- she has created 4 songs. So, if you understand that- it means there are 8 songs between two. yay!
The last interesting goody- is a small Tribute prooving she's moved on since Laundry Service. She goes back to her Humble-Breat fixation (haha) in Costume Makes The Clown- and sequels-it-up with "I Told You I Felt Lucky With My Humble Breasts...Well I Don't" :D if THAT line itself doesn't spark SOME interest- you have a problem! :D FIVE STARS FOR SHAKIRA'S ORAL FIXATION VOL. 2!
My only problem with this? The cover doesn't relly have anything to do with the C.D itself, other than the Title, her description of Oral Fixation, and How Do You Do. But it's great, nonetheless.
One more thing- Another interesting aspect of this Album is that two of the songs are "remakes" of two released in her Fijacion Oral- but the translations are completely different. So simply- within one tune, and two languages- you get four songs. She also wrote a "Sequel" kind of song to Laundry Service by writing the lyrics "Told you I felt lucky with my humble Breasts" -and anyone who knows "Whenever Wherever" will know that that is the exact place where referenced. Pretty sweet, eh? Evolution is beautiful- but even moreso when dealing with Shakira.
