Deiva Thirumagan

This is another feather in GV's cap. His combo with Vijay is always refreshing and they have never failed to deliver. This album is worth listening more many reasons. Go get it if you love some soothing and lovely orchestration. It is a refreshing album amidst a number of albums the have lot of jarring and koothu numbers.

Yodhakaa

It was really hard to rate each songs as i was fixed to give all of them a 5 and hand over the review! The album is such an exquisite mix of such melodious songs that will put in a state of trance you would never wanna come back! Then again when you listen to the album at a stretch you will feel that there is a quite a repetion in the musical phrases in all the songs! The band has an interesting mix of musical instruments but a little variation in each song would make it even more intersting to listen to the album as a whole!

The Resistance – Muse

It’s diagnostic of the album as a whole is that its conceptually impressive but musically all too familiar. The Resistance” isn’t perfect by any means, and some of its flaws are quite large. There’s not as many memorable songs as, say, “Origin of Symmetry”, but the album flows along like a classical work of album rock bombast. And while not their best, it’s decent enough to ensure there’ll be more – even though the truly off-the-wall moments are either rare or misguided, meaning the record feels slightly anonymous. They wanted to craft a gigantic over-the-top progressive rock album, and whether it goes down as a flop or masterpiece is frivolous. Muse still sound like themselves, they gave fair warning that the album would be absolutely ridiculous, and sound like something from 1980s.

Alter Bridge – AB III

Blackbird gave the band a name; and they’ve lived up to that name in this album. Their music is technical to an extent and they’ve done a good job in mixing the emotions and varying the mood and tempo across the album. The duo of Mark and Myles works out well for the band and they’re well on their way to claiming the hard rock throne.

Teen Thay Bhai

Teen Thay Bhai is an upcoming Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s movie. R.O.Mehra previous movies included the impressive “Rang De Basanti” and Delhi-6 which had A.R.Rahman as the music director . Teen Thay Bhai appears to a fun movie and its music is bhangra-inclined . The album does include Daler Mehndi ,Sukhwinder and Mohit Chauhan but it is a mediocre one. We don’t see a bhagra-style Rang De Basanti or a Nagada-Nagada but the first song is about pigeon-kabootar !

Best of 2010-Hindi

We bring you some of exquisite bollywood albums of 2010 . The year 2010 has offered a wide range of songs . Soulful numbers like “Bin Tere” from I hate luv storys did vanquish listener’s hearts while blissful numbers like “Pee loon “ caressed the hearts of music lovers . One could see Lucky Ali at his best with “Hairat” from Anjaana Anjaani while Zubeen Garg left us spellbound with “Ab Mujhko Jeena “ from Aashayein . Dance/party songs have also been inimitable may it be Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy’s “Uff Teri Ada” . Rahat has been at his best with numbers like “Dil to bachcha hai” from Ishqiya , “Tere Mast Mast Do Nain” from Dabangg and the blissful sufi number “ Sajda” from My Name is Khan .

Black Clouds & Silver Linings – Dream Theater

I’d say this is one of the bands better albums, but not as good as Octavarium. The intended dark feel of the album has been done exceedingly well and DT shows yet again that they are one of the best progressive metal bands out there. What lies ahead for DT after the exit of Portnoy I do not know, but I only pray they continue to entertain their millions of fans out there.

Game

The Shankar Ehsaan Loy trio have offered a fairly good musical through GAME. The songs “Maine ye kab socha tha”, “It’s a game” stand out sounding impressive. With a number of accomplished singers like Shaan, Kay Kay and Shreya, SEL have scored a promising music that supports the theme of the movie. Yet, the album as a whole, lacks that magical touch of the trio’s evergreen hits like “Dil Chahta Hai” and “Kal Ho Na Ho”. In all, they may not be great winners, but SEL have definitely not lost the GAME!

Scream – Ozzy Osbourne

First things first. Goodbye to Zakk wylde and welcome Gus G. I have to say this is a step forward cause Zakk dividing time between the band and his own troupe ‘Black Label Society’ hasn’t been of much help to the band. All the songs have been structured well, with thrash sounding riffs and excellent leads; the making of good quality music I must say.
