Mamma Mia [re: Marquis]  

In reply to:

I've only heard 1/2 of the M.I.A. record so far, and like about 1/2 of it, which is about par for the course for me and her.


I listened to all of it this afternoon and can't quite figure out what all the fuss about the girl is about. Admittedly there is a lot of experiment in it but there is also way too little decent tunes or songs. The rougher tracks sound like The Prodigy for girls, the mid-tempo ones are Rhianna for intellectuals. When the song "Caps Lock" came on I thought yeah, now the album part with the good tunes begins but unfortunately it's the last track on it.

It certainly is an album that is different from the currently successful girls pop the likes of Gaga or Rihanna in that it doesn't stick to the commercial recipe of popular beats and hooks with a matching chorus. But on the other hand I find it difficult to imagine going through the whole record again. It's too nervous and trying too hard. Too little moments of fun.
