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 …

Qasam Se Qasam Se - Music Review / Opinion

Qasam Qasam Se - Music : Shailendra - Sayanti.
When an album consists of songs sung by master singers like Kunal Ganjawala, Shaan, Mohit Chouhan & KK and Jal Band, it becomes a compulsion for me to check that out. Qasam Se Qasam Se belongs to this category. These big names made me listen to the album & I was not disappointed! Though, its average only. 3 songs stand out. Jal Band disappoints so do songs by Kunal & Shaan. Below is the brief review of the 6 out of 12 songs that I have heard. Will review others shortly. Read on.
1. Zindagi Keh Rahi Hai : - Singer - Mohit Chouhan.
When Mohit Chouhan sings a song, we can't help but get lost in that. Zindagi Keh Rahi Hai is really a beautiful song. But Mohit sings his heart out in his typical style. Interesting preludes consisting of Sax & some aalaaps / croons provide a perfect opening to this easy on ear song. Sounds a bit like some Mehfil song. Percussion is really interesting. Lyrics also support it well. Good work by c…

Teri Meri Kahaani - My Music Review

Teri Meri Kahaani : -Music - Sajid-Wajid. Lyrics - Prasoon Joshi


Teri Meri Kahaani is an average (possibly below average) album. Only 2 songs are really very good & rest of them are mere gap-fillers. I might sound harsh but Sajid-Wajid are expected to deliver better music. Afterall their debut album Deewana (Sung by Sonu Nigam) was a runaway hit & was way too melodious. Teri Meri Kahaani is a typical contemporary bollywood album that is not very appealing in terms of melody. Below is the music review of Teri Meri Kahaani. Please don't mind if it contradicts your opinion.

1. Mukhtasar : -Singer - Wajid.
Electronic Piano tunes open the opening track of album. This one is catchy right from the beginning. Wajid sings in his usual way. Orchestration is heavy & compliments the song very well. Lyrics by Prasoon Joshi are good. Tune is really good. Based on typical club beats. Quite likeable piece of music. Wajid's voice sounds very fresh & provides some change as his voc…
