I agree about /\/\/\Y/\ not being as good as her first two, it's just kind of a mess. not even a hot mess.
I liked that performance though. Oh and I was watching MTV News and Emily commented on "Born Free" saying something like it was the "future of music videos"

Emily loves M.I.A. to death so of course she would say that. I really like the new album, I agree it isn't a Kala or an Arular but its still catchy and dancey. It definitely deserves more than a friggin 4.4.

I like the XXXO video for the most part. I didn't like that she looks like a lion on the prowl in the beginning, Her hair is sooooooo big. Also the "Thank You For Adding Me." I laughed my head off.

It's certainly not going to get her into any less trouble regarding the use of "Tamil Tiger" imagery.

ooh, love it. the whole xanga/stupid myspace layout theme was cool, the video felt very much her style, but still new.

I think Maya (the album) is really awesome and I don't think continuing in the style of the earlier two would have amounted to anything worth while. I heard so many terrible things about this one so I went in expecting nothing and really liked it. I think expectations based on her previous work is what got this so panned. I think it's unique from her previous work yet retains her voice in a great way. No one else could have pulled it off this well, either.

So theres a video for "Story to be Told" at http://yesthelittlepeoplewillneverwinbu ... hitup.com/
I can't seem to view it though. All I hear is a choppy version of the song. :/

I've heard so many people rave M.I.A guess I should give them a listen, I'll give me opinion tomorrow as it is getting a bit late to give it a real good listen.

I'm digging this, MAYA is probably my favourite album though.
