Aaoromale- Awesome guitar work. I loved the style of the song. Its so different with a feel of rock and lot of blues style backing. Alphons Joseph has sung really well. One of the best track in the album.
Anbil Avan- Devan and Chinmayi has sung it. Hard synth and mridhangam is an awesome combo. Rahman proves once again that he is the best. Felix Mendelssohn's Wedding March comes in between, soon after which our very own Mangalyam music takes over with strings and chorus. The song ends with church organ and mridhangam backing the song.
Hosanna- I've become a fan of Vijay Prakash soon after listening to Manmohini Moore from Yuvvraj. Vijay Prakash is an excellent choice for this song. Blaaze's rap was unusual as usual. Suzanne D'Mello's backing vocals singing "Hosanna" was remarkable. This song was released long back in the internet and i believe was also the song which created great interest among Rahman fans to buy this album. One of the best track in the album.
Kannukkul Kannai- Ultimate violin, electric guitar and cello combo in the song. Nice song with Naresh Iyer rendering his voice. I keep listening to this song again and again just for the violin-electric guitar-cello combo. Its just super.
Mannipaaya- One of the best in the album. I loved the chords in the song. A. R. Rahman & Shreya Ghoshal would have sung really well. I like the part when Rahman sings "Urugi Urugi.." and there is a lapse in the beat (or a slightly different beat pattern). Chorus with flute, sitar and piano is super. Wonder how the song is shot!
Omana Penne- One of the best in the album. Benny Dayal & Kalyani Menon have lent voices. The auto-tune work in Benny's singing is just beautiful. The song is even more beautiful when Kalyani Menon comes in with her singing in Malayalam. With a little suppressed Nadhaswaram backing the song, it sounds mellifluous. Benny's style of style singing in the song is good as usual.
Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa- My favorite track. Only Rahman can compose something like this. Awesome chords. I feel like flying every time i listen to it. Karthik has sung it. This is one of the best track in the album.
Every song in this album is really good. But some people feel that the album is more adhered to Hollywood and western style of music. Maybe its because the film might've needed that type of music. Rahman's music is always good but its best when its heard with the video. So lets all wait for the movie to release. After all, its A.R.Rahman's album. What do you expect other than awe-inspiring music?
