So I hope y'all heard (non-google friendly, non-tasteful-name friendly) /\/\ /\ Y /\. I'VE READ SOME BAD THINGS YOU GUYS.

*BANGIN' POP SONGZ FOLLOW*
So anyway some of the songs on /\/\ /\ Y /\ are totally off-the-hook awesome. I think it would be wise to listen to it with approx. 16 speakers. HOWEVS I will agree with tha h8ers that some songs fall a bit flat. For the purpose of the good/bad breakdown I will ignore opening track "The Message," because it is short. And awesome. -IPHONE CONNECTED TO THA INTERNET CONNECTED TO THA GOOGLE CONNECTED TO THA GOVERNMENT-
THERE ARE DRILLS IN Steppin' Up. It's almost like I'm listening to a really angry Micachu, who suddenly has a gun and subba subba sub.
Lovalot (for the part where she goes IF I B THE F WHO THE F B THE I)
It Takes a Muscle is a p nice ballady type thing I think. Though I have recently discovered it is a cover from some random synthpop band what.
Born Free is still insanely fun to listen to really loudly. GOD WHOEVER U R COME OUT WHEREVER U RRRRRRRR
Teqkilla I liked initially but I think it is like 3 minutes too long. And kind of tacky. I'm OK with XXXO but not this one, because I have double standards like that.
Story to be Told (snoooozer), It Iz What It Iz (I don't even know), Tell Me Why (because it sucks, that is why) all kind of blur together as bland auto-tuney things in my head. This might not be accurate descriptions of these songs because I am not actually listening to them right now but shut up.
WHAT MAY NOT BE TOO CLEAR IS THAT I enjoy the majority of the albummmm. Steppin' Up I think is on par with Bamboo Banga for M.I.A. blasting you in the face with the freshest shit going.
