ALBUM REVIEW: M.I.A. - KALA

Kala is the second studio album by UK experimental electronica and rap artist M.I.A. and will be released in the United Kingdom on August 20th and on August 21st in the USA. OK, I definitely take back any insecurities I had for M.I.A. second time around (shame on me), cos this album is off rip forreal. Almost every song is live and organic, I was bobbing my head to quite a few. This is not what I expected at all, “Jimmy” is starting to grow on me, but I absolutely fiend for “Paper Planes” and “XR2”! Production was on point; Timbaland, Bangladesh and M.I.A. of course – just to name the few I know of and love. Guest appearances include Afrikan Boy, The Wilcannia Mob and Timbaland on “Come Around,” also my favorite. M.I.A. fans, like myself, will not be disappointed.
