iTunes Review

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. Kala, stands out as an album full of a sense of undeniable energy.

Customer Reviews

Never fails to impress.

As if Arular wasn't already good enough, this album just makes her stand out even more. The beats are so addictive & fun. The stand out tracks for me are definetly "Bamboo Banga", "BirdFlu", "Jimmy" & the best is definetly "Paper Planes". I just hope she'll finally get the mainstream success she deserves.

Album of the Year

It takes a few listens to sink into, but this is the one album I recommend to everyone. The lyrics are dark and raw, the music is disjointed, but that's what makes M.I.A. unique and enjoyable. You don't know what to expect. And with each listen, you hear and notice something new.


This is a thoroughly wolrd class album from one of the most original and unique artists of the 21st Century...Period!! Unlike the current generation of manufactured idiocy aimed at the general public who are unwilling to embrace change, M.I.A has created the most diverse, and quite often thought provoking, albums you are likely to hear for a very long time, and from one of the UK's most deserving talents, she is sure to alter musical tastes of many people with this masterpiece!!

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...
