Album Review

Shakira's 1996 debut album, Pies Descalzos set the stage for one of the international community's most celebrated and exciting stars. The album took a while to gain momentum, but once it did, the young chanteuse ascended to dizzying commercial heights that were only magnified with her more electrifying later releases. The more tranquil Pies Descalzos, however, finds the young singer/songwriter balancing heartfelt, earnest ballads (such as "Te Necesito") with catchy, jangly pop/rock. The album opens with the infectious and melodic pop/rocker "Estoy Aqui" and continues with the ballad "Antologia" before breaking into the dancehall-lite of "Un Poco de Amor." As can be seen from the diversity of the material, Shakira seems to still be finding her own voice, but the results are nonetheless engaging. Other highlights include the catchy "Se Quiere Se Mata," "Donde Estas Corazon," and the cool, jazzy "Te Espero Sentada," which unfortunately loses momentum during the chorus. All in all, Pies Descalzos is a solid debut from a young artist who was still evolving and would later further fulfill her artistic potential. ~ Jose F. Promis, Rovi

5 stars

Just because her best song is in this album. The tune «Estoy Aquí» is her best song, period. Straight from the 90's, when Shakira was only known in America Latina and Brazil. Before she started singing in English (when things went downhill). If you should download a Shakira song, get Estoy Aquí. You won't regret :)

Fan from the Begining

I have loved Shakira from the get go. I remember singing all these songs for my friends because they totally rocked back in the day. They still do. I still like her stuff, but these songs show off her writing ability as opposed to her dancing ability.


The first Shakira song i heard wasn't hips dont lie, it was vuelve. I must say, this album is a lot more powerful than a lot of Shakira's other ones.

After achieving superstardom throughout Latin America, Colombian-born Shakira became Latin pop's biggest female crossover artist since Jennifer Lopez. Noted for her aggressive, rock-influenced approach, Shakira maintained an extraordinary degree of creative control over her music, especially for a female artist; she wrote or co-wrote nearly all of her own material, and in the process gained a reputation as one of Latin music's most ambitiously poetic lyricists. When she released her first English...
