Shakira's big commercial breakthrough this album established the Colombian singer as a superstar in Latin America. The two bonus tracks are different versions of 'Estoy Aqui' (The Love & House Mix and The Radio Edit). Originally released in 1996.
The title of Shakira's breakthrough 1996 album translates to "naked feet," which somehow captures the combination of playfulness and earnestness that marks the music. Recorded when she was 18, Pies Descalzos finds the Colombian singer-songwriter striving to find her own style. The disc moves through dance pop and dance-hall-lite before landing on a convincing-enough guitar-rock amalgam. It's a likable record, but Shakira seemed to acknowledge its weaknesses when she chose only one of its songs for inclusion on the later (and much superior) MTV Unplugged. --Rickey Wright --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is my TOP 5 Shakira's Album:
5. The Remixes 3.8/5.0
(good remix version of the first album but only 4 different songs)
5. Laundry Service 4.0/5.0
(very commercial, nice arrangements, Lyrics are totally uninspired)
3. Donde Estan Los Ladrones? 4.5/5.0
(excellent lyrics, keeps the soul of her debut album)
2. Shakira: MTV Unplugged 4.8/5.0
(Thousand times better than most of Unplugged sessions by MTV. Only comparable to Nirvana and 10000 Maniacs Unplugged (Natalie Merchant).
1. Pies Descalzos 5.1/5.0
(Inspiration at her 110%, the real songwriter and permormer)
It's a largely acoustic album, but it's done excellently in a non-boring way. "Un Poco de Amor" has a slight Reggae feel to it, with a catchy beat. "Te Espero Sentada" is a wonderful treat, that goes a musical direction I never expected. The verses and the chorus sound so different, but blend so well. "Se Quiere, Se Mata" is a story about the ills of lust and abortion.
I am every day more impressed with this album and I never regret that I bought it.
