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…

Turning Point - My Music Review

Pop / Punjabi music album Turning Point by Khiza was released in 2009. There are 20 songs in total including 2 remixes. Honestly, the punjabi tracks are no great or good. Very usual stuff. What really stand out are the songs sung by Pakistani singers Omer Nadeem & Hadiqa Kiani. Omer sounds like Atif a lot but has better voice than him. Hadiqa Kiani is Pakistan's best female pop singer & it shows in her song Muhabataan. Go for it if you're bored of usual bollywood stuff. Below is the review of the songs that I liked. Click the songs to play them.
1. Dil Ka Diya : - Singer - Omer Nadeem.
A typical pop number sung well by Omer in typical Atif style. Electronic effects can be heard in conjugation with piano & percussion beats. Instantly likeable song. Tune is simple & effective. Best part is the last Bujh Hai Gaya. The way the tune hits the higher octave sounds really good.
2. Dil Ka Diya (Dance Mix):- Singer - Omer Nadeem.
More Electronic version of original. Beats a…

Music Review - Teri Aankhen (Non-Filmy)

Teri Aankhein :- Music - Raaj Aashoo, Lyrics - Murli Aggrawal
Not very often do we come across a Non-Filmy Album that has got really good songs & good variety. Teri Aankhen is one such album that consists of really different & unusual songs. It consists of 11 tracks & all of them are unique. Barring Aaja Pyare, i heard them all & was really impressed by music talent of young composer Raaj Aashoo. Now why didn't i hear Aaja Pyare? Simple. I hate Mamta Sharma's voice & singing style & hence just skipped her song. Rest of the album is reallyu very good. Please note that there is nothing magical or extraordinary in Teri Ankhen (except Saiyyan). But the USP of the album is the freshness & the variety. We have mushy romantic Title song, Sufi Saiyaan, Folkish Jee Le Har Pal & Grunge(y) Ya Khuda. Best part is that it boasts of some of the best contemporary bollywood singers like Shaan, Kunal Ganjawala, Sunidhi Chauhan, Javed Ali & Zubeen Garg! Below …

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…
