yeah this is a dope album, even better than her first. It just literally sounds like nothing before it, her vocals are very weird but real catchy.

I love it, it'll probably settle at my favourite album for the year.

It might just be the last (real) song steering my thoughts (Come Around doesn't count) but M.I.A. has that Clash vibe going on - she's exploded in popularity 3 times with her three albums (I count Piracy Funds Terrorism for sure) and still hasn't sold out. The Clash did the same thing, the more popular they got the harder they tried to alienate the wider fanbase.

Kala is the album everyone can love. I've taken it up the coast on trips with my mates and its pretty much the only album we'll play all the way through. Arular is a personal classic but Kala is just better.

is it true that Danja produced some trax in this album?
or Timbaland only?

P.S. who produce XR2? Mark Holiday?

Danja co-produced Come Around and Diplo produced XR2.

^^^^^wu-stang roupie

the album really is banging couldnt wait for it to drop. and I wasnt so sure about timbalands involvement. luckily she went around the world while her visa was fucked for the US. all for the better of the sound of KALA

Ive only heard a couple of tracks but that 'Jimmy' track was overplayed on Radio1 and did my head in
