M.I.A. “Arular” (2005)

August 2, 2011

One look at the cover and you know that this album isn’t gonna be boring. Indeed, Arular has great moments like the mellow Sunshowers or the jungle-beat-driven Amazon. However, it’s not a good thing when a remix sounds better than the actual song (Galangaton vs. Galang). Half of the tracks don’t carry me away. Still, the record’s biggest asset is freshness – on this field M.I.A. has no peers.
