Rolling Stone Magazine – 10 Best Indian Albums

Posted on February 6, 2009. Filed under: India, Music | Tags: , |

Seems like Rolling Stone Magazine had a one pager on the best Indian Albums of 2008. And to my delight, Motherjane‘s “Maktub” was numero uno! I’ve loved both their albums, and really think they are a class act. Congratulations to Motherjane, and hope they keep making great music.

Dasavatharam Music Review

Posted on April 26, 2008. Filed under: Movies, Music, Tamil |

One of the most expected tamil movies of 2008 had its music release ceremony on 25th April, with the chief guest being none other than Jackie Chan! You heard it right, the Hollywood action hero, who of late has been connected to India more often, was specially invited to the gala function and received the first copy of the CD. Will that make a difference to the quality of music? One can guess the obvious answer.

Music director Himesh Reshammiya obviously does not go through much of trouble – he has to select a good track from some other director, and remix it for his songs. And he has done the same here. The music is nothing new, is run of the mill and definitely not captivating.

Out of the six tracks, there is not one worth mentioning. The lyrics are not good either, even though they are penned by Vairamuthu and Vaali. Is this a preview of what we can expect from the movie? One hopes not.

Lyrics : 2.5/5

Music : 2/5

Vocals : 2.5/5

Overall : 2.5/5
