3. M.I.A. - Arular



This is perhaps the most divisive album on the list. I would admit that I've not been able to listen to the whole thing. I've tried on several occasions but have lost interest. I've heard Galang on LA's Indie 103.1 a few times and while i usually don't change the station I'm not exactly compelled. But, until I hear the whole album I feel like I'd regret offering any sort of opinion beyond what I've already said. For instance last year I heard only a track or two from Kanye West's album, and since I wasn't immediately struck by it, I dismissed it, then later heard the whole thing and realized it was brilliant (and come to think of it wouldn't mind hearing it again). Chad's not afraid to wax hyperbolic dubbing her "the most overrated artist of the millennium". Our reluctance to embrace the album is negated by the praise Keegan, Aaron, and Marc heap upon it. Aaron, aware of the hype tosses aside is reluctant to hop on the bandwagon, but can't help himself. "Fuck it, I like it", he says, "Maybe it's not the greatest thing ever and maybe there is too much hype, but it's a boatload of fun. One of the most enjoyable albums of the year. Marc while a bit disappointed in her live show is equally satisfied by the record, "M.I.A. clearly delivers on this one, out of control good." The most effusive praise is reserved for Mr. Dewitt, who personal list this album topped (he even offers her a bit of career advice). The album "is original, intelligent, sexy and important. if she doesn't sabotage herself, she could be hugely succesful. i can't find the words for how pleasing this record is."

This is kind of a silly choice. I can't tell what makes this album (in a metaphysical, music kind of way) any different than Gwen Stefani. I feel the same way about it and the hype as i do about Missy Elliott, that feeling that it's supposedly really good, and everybody who likes it REALLY likes it, but i can't ever seem to want to listen to it when it comes up on shuffle and i certainly never pick it out to listen to. It does produce some ecstasy in its fans though.

The girl is going to be huge. Feel it in your bones, bitches!

P.S. M.I.A. and her beau/sometime producer Diplo are both film school grads. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, McFadden.
