Love this. YALA (yolo!), Sexodus, Matangi, Know it Aint Right, Tent song...brilliant
M.I.A.'s "Arular" and "Kala" are two of my favorite albums of the 00s, but I've been really disappointed with her past two records. "Maya" was just an aural c.f.; all over the place in the worst way (cool Suicide sample though). I don't even mind that she says ridiculous things or is a millionaire who thinks she's a political activist ("I put people on a map who've never seen a map."). Her blend of musical globetrotting, brash attitude, and radical chic quickly went from charming to shrill. "Matangi," named for a Hindu goddess, is marginally better and more coherent than "Maya," but nowhere near the quality of her best work. "Bad Girls" is a standout single, but it's so good that it just highlights the weakness of the rest of the songs. Yeah, quite a comedown from her awesome early albums.
