/\/\ /\ Y /\ - M.I.A., 2010

Akin to albums by the similarly avant-garde artist Björk, each track on /\/\/\Y/\, no matter how different, is unmistakably the work of M.I.A. The leap in her ability, to realise such a distinct vision, is complete. /\/\/\Y/\ is at points a terrifying achievement but, much like life in general, it has so much to offer an inquisitive and open mind–it simply depends whether or not you're bothered enough to scratch beyond the surface and dive in.

Saw her on Jools the other night
