    I really like Arular and Kala, but I was done soon with Maya. It doesn't sound as fresh as Kala and Arular. For me, it gets lost in those industrial sounds and i DO think it's very mass appealing. Weird, I know, but I can see that people will listen to this quicker than to Arular or Kala, because of songs like XXXO, It Takes A Muscle and Tell Me Why.

    Hmmm...The Ciara track. Well I can see some influence, but only if I strain too hard. Kind of 'It Takes A Muscle'-ish. But the vocal style..naah! M.I.A won't double her voice for backup vocals.

    Have she not already done that several times? It's not a bad thing to do honestly, I enjoy it when female artist do so, which alot of them do. It was actually the production I was thinking about, more than the vocals, and especially from the last chorus and the instrumental parts after that, 2:02 and then when that pshycedelic drrdddd drrddd drrddd drrddd sound appears, and the synths, and eventually the drums.

    It Takes A Muscle!! Better than the original? I would say YES to that!

    I like it too when they do that. Bjork does it so often. Especially in Vespertine and Medulla.

    Its just that M.I.A. doesn't do it that often.

    As for Kala v/s MAYA...I thought over it again. And I still think Kala is better in the long run.

    1. 20 Dollars
    2. Bucky Done Gun
    3. Come Around
    4. World Town
    5. XXXO
    6. Paper Planes
    7. Galang
    8. Bamboo Banga
    9. Bird Flu
    10. Boyz

    She is a true artist. I can go on about her for days.

    For me, I find Kala as her best album, followed by Arular and then MAYA. And yes, I love MAYA a lot, so you can understand how much I love Kala.

    It's more Timbaland than Mathangi. Thus, gets stale after some time.

    It's a great track, but not compared to the rest of the album. I love the last 1:10 seconds of it though.

    ^ sure I have.

    now those two artists I wouldnt compare. never. first, I really really dont like Björk but thats just matter of taste yeah. the songs may seem similar yeah but the feeling and gackground of the songs are so very very different. theyre two too different artists to compare their music imo.

    Declare Independence is better than Born Free.

    But I love Born Free too. M.I.A. has many better songs than BF though.
