Well, we'd already moved on from that talk, so thanks for bringing it up again.

If you want to see her vid again it's here: M.I.A, Born Free on Vimeo

That is some disturbing shit.

Video was pretty lame, but I'm really looking forward to what Coppercab has to say about it.



I wasn't impressed with the song last week. Still not. And considering the album's only going to be ten tracks, we're already operating at a 10% shit level.

There have been a number of clunkers on both of the past albums as well, so I'm not too worried at this point.

Hopefully The Clash is not sampled on this album.

Has there been a good lead single released this year? I'm serious.

The National - Bloodbuzz, Ohio
Broken Social Scene - World Sick
Goldfrapp - Rocket
Yeasayer - Ambling Alp

That's all I can think of. A few more tracks are OK, but clearly among the weaker tracks on their respective albums.

Well, "Ambling Alp" turned out to be one of only two good songs on that album, so it should get double points for picking up slack.

I think Rocket is easily the best song on Goldfrapp's new album.

But the new M.I.A. song is not impressive to say the least, hopefully the rest of the album is better.

Pretty meh video for a pretty dull song...I kind of liked that track that came out earlier with the strobe lights and all though. Obviously, our expectations shouldn't be set as high as Kala or Arular, but neither of those had songs as weak as the two she has put out this year.

What really annoys me is that this album will get fairly strong reviews just because of the name that's attached to it. If the rest of the record is on par with "Born Free", we could safely say that MIA would have been ignored entirely if this was her debut.

I like Stylo.
