iTunes Editors' Notes

M.I.A.’s debut Arular, with its roaring electro and outspoken calls to third world unity, stood out as one of the most critically polarizing and creatively bracing releases of 2005. For her followup M.I.A. has largely adhered to the chaotic template that originally brought her fame. Standout track “Paper Planes” comes off like a ragga-tinged schoolyard chant perforated by gunfire, while the frenetic stomp of lead single “Boyz” would sound right at home next to any Timbaland helmed club anthem. Indeed Timbaland’s world-spanning sonic aesthetic is clearly a touchstone for M.I.A., yet her beats are touched with an air of pseudo-militant righteousness and barely restrained dissonance sure to appeal to fanciers of the pop avant-garde. Critical beard pulling aside, Kala, stands out as an album full of a sense of undeniable energy missing from most modern club music. When M.I.A. growls “I’m knocking on the doors of your Hummer, Hummer” she clearly wants to be seen as a carjacker in the throes of a dangerous political awakening. Though this may be something of a fantasy, the unhinged roar of Kala is full of truly frightening and joyously enervating sounds, and deserves to be heard by adventurous listeners.

If you read a lot about new music on the web, odds are pretty good that, at some point between the September 2004 release of "Galang" and the March 2005 release of Arular, you were struck with the urge to turn your computer off or maybe even heave it out of a nearby window. If you don't read a lot about new music on the web, the preceding sentence indicates how bewildering and draining the chatter about M.I.A. became. Arular, M.I.A.'s first album, leaked well before its official release, allowing...
