'Kadal' is one for the ages, if you are a fan of deep, enduring music. This is a feast for Rahman fans, esp after that disappointment in 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan'. ARR has been breaking creative barriers since 1992. 20 years hence, this juggernaut still rolls on.
This album is an epic creation. It has everything from Progressive rock to soft rock to hard rock to qawwalis, romantic numbers, folk music, haunting songs, Arabic, Spanish music. This album is a cornucopia of several musical styles and influences. Mohit Chauhan deserves special mention.This album is a celebration of Rahman’s genius. Take a bow Sir.
