Album Cover Thumbnail Image for M.I.A. 'Arular'

Shades of the sample-heavy British pop electronic dance invasion of 1988. Bomb the Bass, S'Xpress and countless others. Not as sample-rich (thanks to the lawyers), but the roots run back to the same place. Euro/Indian/South-Asian sentimentalities abound with just the right hints of charming dissanonace that make your ear go, "What?" The danger is that it's too easy to like, bringing the inevitable burnout that much closer that much faster.
