Galang Alang Alanga

I've grown increasingly obsessed with M.I.A.'s "Galang" since it was featured as a free itunes download a couple of weeks ago and while I'm interested in hearing more, in large part to Richard X producing some of her album, I had to pause when I saw Needle Drop's breakdown of the critical reaction to her music. Any article that can casually drop something like this:
...as a takedown of the misguided Simon Reynolds review of Arular that appeared in the Voice only a week earlier, Christgau's piece also short-circuited what could have been a significant momentum shift against the album.

: into it's ninth paragraph is obviously something fairly thought out.
