I bought M.I.A.'s latest album, Maya, when it came out this summer, but I haven't listened to it much. The first couple tracks are pretty abrasive, and it's been stopping me from popping the disk in my CD player. But last week I decided I need to give it a chance, since I love her first two albums so much. Seriously, Kala and Arular are just so fantastic. Anyway, I've been listening to Maya, and about halfway through track nine ("Born Free"), I realized I was definitely into it. Some of the tracks almost sound like a punk band, raw and repetitive and screamy. I am not at a stage where I love it yet. But I think I might get there.
