M.I.A Comin' Back With Power Power

88_neeeet-1.gif

 

Since her new album has been released, I've got back into M.I.A, and was wondering what everyone here thinks of her.

 

I know a lot of people only know Paper Planes, but I think her albums so far have all been pretty good (the newest one less so, but still a cool auditory experience, if having less to say content-wise). I just love the mix of styles she puts together.

 

My current favourites from her 3 albums:

$10 from Arular

 

Bird Flu from Kala

 

XXXO from /\/\/\Y/\

Have to admit to liking XXXO!

 

[M...I...M...I...M...I...A]

 

But I heard some comments from her about Lady Gaga which I thought were plain stupid, and didn't do anything to make me like her.

She makes a lot of noise that I don't like. A car crash, would be how I describe the noise she makes.

A car crash with "Power Power"?

 

That's pretty powerful.

I listened to the top and bottom tracks. It's just not my thing, but it's good to be exposed to it; I can impress yoof in the family with my new knowledge.

A car crash.

 

...would also be an apt description for someone like Paris Hilton or Lady Gaga: You know it's horrible, and that someone probably paid dearly but you just can't help your fascination.

Not sure how anyone can find Paris Hilton or Lady Gaga remotely fascinating.

You can't exactly group Paris Hilton and Lady Gaga in the same category!

 

People could be fascinated by LG due to her music, her fashion, stage productions/costume etc...

 

Paris Hilton has none of these, unless you're fascinated by the fascinatingly bad!

M.I.A has a lot more artistic credibility than Lady GaGa..and..Paris Hilton.

Lady Gaga is a walking parody. For that reason I prefer her to M.I.A. who just sounds terrible in an attempt to be genuine.

I've only listened to Kala which I found enjoyable back in 2007, when I was getting into music. :)

 

I'mma give her new one a listen now. :D I think she is in a few songs for Major Lazer and liked her inclusion there.

 

Also I'm fascinated with Paris Hilton. :p Probably the only person who genuinely likes her.

I like that paper planes song and a couple of others are ok but not really my thing to be honest.

My friend introduced me to this song years ago (2005 to be precise) and I've not heard it for years so...

 

 

Played it at Game once and everyone was :blank:

A stunner/I quite like it. I prefer URAQT and Sunshowers from that album though.

 

U R A

QT
