A very daring and adventurous album. Definitely brought something fresh and exciting into pop. The production and her voice was pretty fantastic.

I remember loving this album a lot more in Grade 10; but still an interesting listen and one with quite a bit of influence.

A work as vital as KALA is such a rarity that when it arrives--and KALA practically smacks you in the face as music becomes experience--you have no choice but to sit up and pay attention. M.I.A.'s part-homemade synthesis of political fury and personal experience is beautiful, funny, tragic, poignant--in other words, it is the stuff of great art. And its incisive brilliance is undeniable.
