Stream M.I.A.'s Latest Album MAYA

M.I.A. /\/\/\Y/\ Maya Album CoverM.I.A.’s third album /\/\/\Y/\ (MAYA), is now available for stream on her MySpace. After giving it a couple of quick listens, I’m surprised to say that I’m a little disappointed. I really _wanted to fall in love with it, since I still listen to _Arular and Kala on a weekly basis, but it didn’t happen.

I walked away thinking that there isn’t a standout song on /\/\/\Y/\. I know she’s been pushing for “XXXO” and “Born Free“ to be her hit songs ever since they were released a few weeks ago, but I just haven’t been feeling them. Maybe this album needs a little time to grow on me. Take a listen and decide for yourself:
