Generally speaking, everyone who is aware of her has an opinion about M.I.A and her musical career, and with this, her fourth album, one can't help to think that she has not only continued her self aware post modern attitude to music production, but also delved further into the subject matters with which she is working with.

The album itself is a more 'basic' mixing that her previous albums. It is here though, with its minimalism of simpler layers, that one finds a clearer and less frantic M.I.A., improving on Kala as far as I'm concerned, and finding a new direction for M.I.A to take with her work.
The album plays as one play, carefully mixing itself and maintaining a good overall sound, unlike her previous efforts, which often jolt from track to track, waking the listener.
It is partially here that I must commend M.I.A's efforts, as once you start the album, either from the start or on a random favourite, it is hard to move away from it in favour of something else.

My only added note to this review is that the album is worth getting on CD. Whilst I happily converted to the digital downloads a few years ago in favour of a more eco friendly way of listening to music, as well as enjoying the benefit of paying less, I have had to roll back technology in favour of this album.
Matangi has an amazing use of drum sounds, all recorded brilliantly, along with M.I.A's voice, which slides in and out with precision edits. If you have a top quality hifi, then this album deserves to be played on it on CD, rather than via an ipod dock.

I am a big fan of M.I.A and I mainly bought this album for the track 'Bad Girls' which I have overplayed. The track listing is good and its an album that I do not have to skip a track too. I have M.I.As other two albums, Arula and Kala and I like this album (matangi) equally as much as the aforementioned.

MIA is one of those artists who if I rated on her singing voice alone wouldn't fare too well but music is about expression, vision and emotion and she ticks all the boxes for me. There are some really impressive tracks on this album and I strongly admire her playing by her own rules and refusing to conform to what the mainstream thinks is 'in' at any given moment. She's a strong artist and this is the first album of hers I've bought so for me she's improving as her career evolves.

MIA has always been my favourite music artist and this album definitely keeps up to scratch with the likes of her previous albums.
My favourite songs on the album are Karmageddon, Warriors, Come Walk With Me, Bad Girls, Boom Skit, YALA and Bring the Noize.
Each of the songs has their own personal flair, I have not stopped listening to this album since I bought it.
The talent on this album is amazing and its very easy to get into all of the songs!
A must buy 4th album for the wonderfully talented MIA

Another fantastic album from M.I.A., inspired by the Hindu goddess Matangi which she researched in India for the album! I have listened to this album everyday, it really is a work of art! All the songs are fantastic and unique in their own way. My favourite songs have to be: Bring the noize, Y.A.L.A., double bubble trouble and MATANGI. I love that she included Bad Girls in this album too as that is one of my favourite songs of hers. This album has a great mix of Indian/tribal beats, hip hop, reggae, dance etc. It's an awesome album, even if you aren't an M.I.A. fan you should listen to this!

Although much of this album's wonderful sound is obviously down to the producers talents more than the artist herself and the fact that her lyrics maybe a little off at the best of times, without M.I.A the producers never would've been pushed to create something so unique - one of the best albums of the year by far. She may not be the most talented when it comes to rapping or singing but she definitely has something to offer the music industry in the way she's blended so much religion, culture and influence together and brought it to a somewhat commercial level.

It starts with 1)Karmageddon - a very dark, reverberated track that ends with the lyric "ain't Dalai Lama, ain't Sai Baba, My words are my armor and you're 'bout to meet your karma" which almost seems like a calm before the storm, a lyrical anticipation and introduction into the massive boom of..

2)Matangi, with pace-making yelps prominent in the beat and an ear-piercing screech let off every now and then - a track that lists and unites various countries at random to the dance floor. The track like many others on the album, towards the end, breaks out into an eastern instrumental section with trademark tribal drums and percussion inclusive. There's a lyric that I love and it's the first hit out at Drake and it goes "we started at the bottom but Drake gets all the credit."

The next song 3)Only 1 U with no surprise - has some strange, some egotistical and occasionally a little bit of what I assume to be sentimental vocals, all very cut up and highly effected. These are placed on top of a beat that includes boxing ring bells, electric static buzzing and towards the end another indian vocal sample section. An example of the strange being "Lara Croft is soft when it comes my stuff.
