Musically, i find M.I.A’s new album “/\/\/\Y/\” hard to listen too. Unlike her previous records, its inaccessible, messy, and all over the place. However, the few songs that actually do shine through, are enhanced even more with video.
The controversial video for “Born Free” is pretty much a short film, and the digital aestheic in “the message” and “Story to be told” are interesting as well. I can certainly relate to her paranoia/technology theme, as im trying to output a similar theme myself with Kunos Songs.
Take a look and see what you think.
