M.I.A. - The One
There's a battle going on in my brain about 'The One'. Half of me is beyond happy that we have some new M.I.A. material to enjoy, but the other is slightly disappointed that it's not packing the punch I want. It's unmistakably her, with the killer vocals, intricate beats and bass you'd expect. Though, try as I might, it feels a wee bit flat to me. I want something with the same excitement as 'Bad Girls' or 'Come Around' to blast loudly out of the windows; unfortunately, this misses the mark. Hopefully, like all the best things, it's a grower.
