On the heels of her gutsy debut Arular, M.I.A.’s sophomore offering stretches its sound further into the reaches of her eclectic electro hip pop mash up. Armed with even more bravado than before, M.I.A. sounds like she’s in complete creative control although—or perhaps because—the album’s all over the place, defying formula. Politically-fueled lyrics chant and scatter over hypnotic synths, samples, hand claps, and gun claps. M.I.A’s most-known hit “Paper Planes” taunts “no one on the corner has swagger like us” while the Timbaland-produced “Come Around” chants “In a faraway land we got shit made/Ray-Ban shades, warheads laid/Babies born in air raids/My girls run the Everglades.”
