5.0 out of 5 stars Horrible, yet wonderful, 12 Feb 2012
By 
This review is from: Maya (MP3 Download)
If you happened to just listen to this album with no idea of who the artist was, chances are you'd hate this. On first inspection this would sound like an abominable, tuneless racket. But then if you listened to it several times, or if you knew M.I.A. and what's she's about, this would be some of the best music ever made.

This album has a very unique sound, not even done by M.I.A. herself before. The grinding drills in Steppin Up, the distorted synths in XXXO and other sounds and themes give the album a style which makes it sound like unbearable noises. Surely the album would be terrible then? Well no, it all made me feel great, in a way that no other songs have made me feel before.

Some absolute standout tracks are XXXO which was mentioned previously, the blissful It Takes a Muscle with some very nice synths, the loud and agressive Born Free, and the relaxing and futuristic Space.

This is definetly one of the best albums of the century so far. If you don't like it at first then fine, but at least give it a second chance as it will definetly grow on you.
