"Boo to the naysayers! Cheers to M.I.A. for not selling out after Paper Planes soared her into international stardom...the opposite of sell-out. Born Free is the best, samples Suicide's Ghost Rider and adds new dimensions"
"Features some of the worst lyrics in history...now given that it makes the best of the year list, that should indicate just how incredibly good the singing, melodies, harmonies, and everything else is on this record"
"Why not? How about the best reissue: I am so ashamed of myself for not hearing these guys or The Method Actors until this year, both bands are must-hears and rank with the best of the era and should be known with the ranks of Gang of Four, etc."
