Albums of the Year 2008: #2



#2 MIA - Kala

Taking second place in the list is another sophomore effort, this time for the first lady of Grimey-Baltimore-dubclash, MIA. Taking the better themes from her debut and padding them out into a full blow album, MIA takes many of the more challenging sounds from the last 25 years, and blends them together to create a platter of pop sounds. While often uncompromising, which could be the albums commercial undoing, "Kala" brings together the sounds of Asia, South America and West London and trumps Girls Aloud to pop album of the year.
