M.I.A.? I have never heard of it. Okay, it is a woman from London, but her family moved to Sri Lanka when she was six months old. Arular was her debut album. The music is a mixture of hip hop and electronic.
Trivia: The album’s title is the political code name used by her father, Arul Pragasam.
I was hoping it was be interesting enough for me to like it, but the beats were too repetitive. It gave me a headache. I hated it And the singing did not help it at all. I would skip this album, but if you like rapping and electronic together, then give it a go. The critics loved this album, but I believe it was removed from a later edition of 1001 Albums… I changed the score because it was so irritating. I thought I was going to go postal. 1/10.
