a complete performance that is her best work
16 November 2003 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

I'd heard Shakira before and liked her songs but not been a great fan. But I viewed the DVD on a whim and was wowed. This was a really great performance, very intense and good musicians, changing pace and style. The "rock" side of her music came through strongly. And it made more impact than hearing even the CD soundtrack of the same, because she, and the band, are up there for the performance. And the chemistry of the live performance with some very crunchy arrangements makes the studio work I've heard flat by comparison.

If you've listened to her albums and stopped to pay attention to her lyrics, and wondered why such wonderful lyrics seem a little too pop, then watch the DVD and see some deeper power put into the songs.

Production quality is good. Color is vivid, editting is only occasionally too chopped up, audience and stage balance well in a small venue, picture looks beautiful on a big screen. Sound mix (I listened to the 5.1 Dolby) is mostly front, where the band is, and very clean. There is only one major extra which is a fairly long making-of video with interviews of Shakira, Estefan, Luis, and some of the other musicians, talking through many of the songs and arrangements and doing various rehearsals. If you liked the performance, you'll want to see the making-of too. BTW, if you can't keep up with her in Spanish, turn on the English subtitles.

So far, this DVD for me outclasses any of her CDs.
