5.0 out of 5 stars It'll get in your head ... Aug. 19 2005
By Mark B
Format:Audio CD
I saw the video for Galang on BPM and was laughing out loud. This skinny little Sri Lankan girl was spitting out london ghetto rap while dancing crazily in front of a cartoon backdrop. But the next few days, something about the beat stayed in my head. I had to hear it again. I did, and I taped it, and the more I listened to it the more I realized I wanted to hear more. I found it at a store and bought it. On the bus ride home I didn't much care for it, but like the Galang video, it stayed in my head. Everytime I listened to it I liked it a little bit more. It's like watching Pulp Fiction, each time you see it, something appears to you that you missed before that makes the whole thing make more and more sense. By now, it is one of my favourite CD's and I don't even listen to this genre (if it even fits into any genre) regularly. It isn't for everyone, but if you have a good subwoofer and an open mind for something unique...give it a shot.

2.0 out of 5 stars Listen before buying? Aug. 10 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Based on the current reviews, I was eager to purchase the CD with anticipation that it had a freshness that crossed generations and music tastes. I played the CD on the way home with my two teenage daughters in the car (hoping they would set me straight if I wasn't "up to date" with the hip music). Much to my surprise, all of us sat in silence as we played track after track. Just in case we missed the emotion or enthusiam felt by the other reviewers, I can only suggest that you listen to the sample tracks before buying. Otherwise, you just might not connect with the artist and it'll leave you wondering why it didn't make it to your top 2005 picks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing March 5 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I don't know why Mr. Cooke thinks that the songs are a bit repetitive, I didn't find that at all. M.I.A. is political, unique with a strong sense of grrrrl-power. She's what the industry needs more of...
Favourites: Galang, Sunshowers, Hombre, and pull up the people- but all the songs are great. The remix to Galang (if you can find it) is also amazing.
If you like her, check out K'naan, a Canadian hip hop artist. He possesses that same originality and political edge for which M.I.A. is known.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! Sept. 29 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
M.I.A.'s Arular is unique and creative, thought provoking and ultimately entertaining. It is a challenging first listen, but it is so infectious... I am still listening after months of play. It is not an album for everyone and it definitely has dubious commercial appeal, but Arular's blend of South Asian rhymes, political commentary and heavy electronica is, in my opinion, absolutely brilliant.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stop while you're ahead! Sept. 7 2005
Format:Audio CD
Save your money or purchase a hammer when you buy this cd because all you'll want to do is hit yourself in the head for buying it in the first place. If not for that then you'll be hitting yourself just so you don't have to hear this woman's whinney voice, trust me. I bought this album just a few days ago and all I can say is..
Well, you get the point..

5.0 out of 5 stars refreshing March 23 2006
Format:Audio CD
M.I.A. is truley a unique presence in music today. Her beats are fantastic, her political messages relevant and very current, and she represents for strong women everywhere. An icredible album, intelligent and thought provoking. A must have for music fans with brains and political interests.
