Won't link to all the individual outlets' lists here—they're easy enough to find—but M.I.A.'s latest is barely a blip on most of them. I agree with this assessment—I thought MAYA was a huge, messy, hard-to-hear disappointment—but I'm surprised that the rest of the critical world seems to agree. I guess at the time of its release so many reviews/profiles/puff pieces were still so wrapped up with truffle-gate that maybe you didn't really notice whether or not anyone actually liked the thing. But now, in year-end time, it's just like the album never even happened at all. Which actually might be for the best. MAYA was a monster, but it's not one MIA can't/won't bounce back from, especially given the benefit of some collective amnesia.
