Music Review of 'Havatum Em' - Sirusho's Album

Armenian Superstar singer Sirusho's album Havatum Em is a massive one! There are 14 songs with 12 originals, 1 remix & 1 instrumental. Album is mostly Pop & R&B and is in English, Greek & Armenian languages. There is one Rock'ish song as well. I will call it a good album because of highly unusual songs. There is a feet-tapping number, there is romantic song, & there is inspirational song. Folk music is noticeable in some songs while some sound like typical club songs. Below is the brief review.
1. Havatum Em :- A perfect start to the album. Typical R&B song. Beautiful Piano chords gelling well with Sirusho's voice. Very soft, easy on ears & enjoyable.I don't understand a word but music gives an impression of losing someone special & remembering him/her. Beautiful singing & light orchestration.
2. Erotas : - Now this is interesting. 2nd song is just opposite to the first song. This one is in Greek language (if i am not mistaken, Sirusho s…

'Bas Yun Hi' by KK - Amazing Song!

Many times we miss some good music just because the movie doesn't become popular & is not promoted well. And since I am always in search of good music, I keep googling for songs. Was searching for something on Saavn.com & it took me to an album called Bas Yun Hi. Its title track is instantly likeable. Sung by none other than maestro KK, this one sounds very energetic & fresh. The song takes us back to the days when Pop music was omnipresent. Bas Yun Hi has a Pop / Rock feel & will appeal to you straightaway.
From start till end, this song gives you feel of Pop that has been immensely poplular in 90s. Sounds very much like any of those hit Pop numbers. Electronic tunes, percussion gel well with KK's owesome voice. KK sounds quite young here. Arrangements are a bit complex but go really well with KK's voice. Tune is catchy. Do give it a try. KK's fans will love this a lot, am sure. There are 3 more songs by KK in this album. You may like them as well. Titl…

Love Is In The Air (Pop Music Album) - My Music Review / Opinion

Love Is In The Air - Pop Music Album
Pop culture seems to have lost somewhere now. I still remember my childhood days when I was hooked to Albums like Deewana (Sonu Nigam), Tanha Dil (Shaan) & Pal (KK). There used to be so much freshness in music that time. Now a days pop has paved way to item songs & usual bollywood stuff. Though still there are composers who have maintained quality in bollywood music. Love Is In The Air is one of those very few Pop albums that actually release these days. Otherwise Pop is lost. Barring Sonu Nigam, KK & Shreya Ghoshal, almost all the famous contemporary singers' voice feature in this album. First 2 songs just stand out.
1. Jaan Ho Meri : - Singer - Shaan. Typical Pop number. Piano chords open this mushy romantic, sugary song. Tunes are quite catchy. Shaan sounds very fresh like his Pop days. Electronic organ also accompanies piano quite well. Good opening to the album. Highly likeable. Tuneful & sweet. Go for it.
2. Anahat : - Singer …

Yaara (Javed Ali's Pop Album) - My Music Review

Yaara : - Music - Rajendra Shivv.  Singer - Javed Ali.

When we have Javed Ali behind the mic, we always expect something soulful, something melodious, something romantic! His album Yaara lives upto the expectations. Though its nothing outstanding or extraordinary, it provides adequate relief in form of noiseless, easy on ear songs. Composer Rajendra has done a good job. Fusion can be felt in almost all the songs. Good thing is that its a small album consisting of only 6 songs (4 original & 2 good remix). Will grow on you. Give it some time.
Thare Khatir :- The name itself suggests that there will be touch of Rajasthani folk music in this song. Its a fusion of Rajasthani folk, Indian classic music & Rock (in terms of Guitar riffs). Good experiment,must say. Javed Ali sings effortlessly. USP is the Indian melody & interesting lyrics. It comes as a refreshing change to those who have been bored of typical noisy bollywood music.
Yu Lab Se :- Piano chords open this mushy romantic num…

Mera Kya Hai from album "Dil Ki Baatein" - Music Review

Reviewing Dil Ki Baatein non-filmy music album.

Not sure how many of us have heard Zubeen's album Zindagi (song Jiya Re Jiya Re, Lage Na Jiya Re) but If you have heard chances are that you know who the composer was. His name is Dudul Saikia "Aalaap". The Assamese guy was brilliant in Zindagi & now he has come back with another album titled "Dil Ki Baatein". This time its an assorted album with various singers but the major attraction is the song Mera Kya Hai sung by soulful singer Javed Ali. I haven't got to hear all songs but did hear Mera Kya Hai & its just brilliant! Here's the review of the song. Listen to the song : - Mera Kya Hai


It starts off with singer crooning Kahin Kahin in background. And magic starts right from the first line. It is super melodious & tuneful. Arrangement specially percussion is outstanding. Its purely a Raaga based song & some superb Hindi lyrics support it very well. Needless to say, Javed has done justice to…
