Product Description

Product Description

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.

Amazon.ca

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible! Jan. 7 2006
By Robert
Format:Audio CD
Oral Fixation Volume 2, being the Yang of Fijacion Oral is one of THE best albums I've heard since '04! I have played this thing like CRAZY, even as i sleep- JUST to wake up to Shakira's Matured Sound (Since her English Debut- Laundry Service). Her music, and writings have always been organic, and very cheeky- but the Oral Fixation's have explored a confident change in them. She now has the strength, as a woman- to tastefully question God (Unfortunately, the only real resemblence to the Eve portrayal on the front cover.), use beautifully Latin-inspired (obviously) words to incorporate death and love together as a heart breaks (As in Illegal), Funks it out to the High's and Lows of the Celeb. Life, and even questions our society with Timor- a Wonderful ending to this C.D.
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Incredible! Jan. 6 2006
By Robert
Format:Audio CD
Oral Fixation Volume 2, the second part to Fijacion Oral Volumen 1 is a deliciously, organic, mature, and cheeky album from our Favourite Hip-shaking Latina, Shakira. I was impressed with this C.D from the first note, to the end. She REALLY knows what she's doing. Every song shows a different aspect of Shakira as a grown Artist since her English Debut Laundry Service. I enjoy feeling the atmosphere she and her world creates around you as she questions God (quite tastefully, of course), supresses her suffocation during breakups, Brings outand describes a crude world of Fame, Swoons over her Lover, and attacks Society in a funky package. Absolutely incredible. If you think Laundry Service was her peak- you haven't seen ANYTHING yet.
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.

With stellar, original vocals, songwriting talent in two languages and being one of the few popstars who writes her own music, Shakira is truly underrated and by far one of the best and most talented popstars making music today. Shakira's 'Oral Fixation vol. 2' is not quite as magical as her english debut 'Laundry Service', but she experiments with all kinds of sounds and influences, such as featuring a choir and church bells in one of the album's best tracks, "How Do You Do", synthy techno sounds on "Animal City" and a mariachi-meets-middle east sound on the album's second single, "Hips Don't Lie". The beautiful "Embrace" is probably the album's most Western-sounding tracks, and it is both romantic and vulnerable. Although not as good as 'Laundry Service', 'Oral Fixation vol. 2' is an electric CD and very unique.

I just have to first point out that the Hips Don't Lie is a really really good addition to the album aside from that track it is pretty good and I thought I wouldn't like it as much as I do but I do.
