8/10 Brian Staff review, 08 July 2010

Just got back from a festival on Monday & was totally elated yet utterly fried. All I wanted to do was have a cuppa & aimlessly watch clips on YouTube. Stumbled somehow onto a page chocka with promo clips for MIA's previous hit singles, got to 'Paper Planes' & after a minute just started sobbing with amazement at how good she is. Well, now album number three has dropped, it has an impenetrable search engine destroying title (which translates as 'Maya') and now she's working with international jetset dubstep numpty Rusko amongst old faves like Diplo & Switch & Blaqstarr. The strong united global essence & beefed-up R 'n' B beats are still mingling with cool Caribbean & African derived rhythms but now there's subtle dubstep flecked shades to contend with. She hasn't sold her soul down the river, her vocals are a little more subdued in places, yet some of these tracks are remarkably tough, funky, low-slung & even abrasive. I've always admired her universally encompassing musical endeavors and this new album isn't gonna disappoint the faithful. Nice futuristic holographic slip case!! Well bling....
