I am a devoted fan of two constructs: the European Classical (Bach, Beethven, Mozart) and how they adapt so well to Tamil music in the hands of seasoned musician like Ilayaraaja. I admit – I am a bit biased towards his music. NEPV is a wonderful treat to those of us who love European Classicals. You don’t have to love it though to like this album. There is a lot of soul in songs like Kaatrai Konjam and Mudhal Murai and even the one sung by Yuvan (Sayndhu). Ilayaraaja is a rarity in Indian film music. The only constructive feedback I have about this album is that some of the other songs could have been slightly more “indianized” like he used to do in his early years. But then Gautham V Menon is a very “anglo-styled” film maker and he probably asked for this.
It is a musical treat to all. Wonderful work on strings (AS ALWAYS!) and this time strings include the Electric Guitar. I loved the garage band style drumming and Electric guitar work in Kaatrai Konjam and Mudhal Murai. Thanks Ilayaraaja – for once more reminding me why I fell in love with your film music in the first place!
Ilayaraja is authentic
Fantabulous album….. Ramya NSK has stupendous voice….. Gautham has got the best of the Mastero….. Sayunthu Sayunthu is too good…. Cheers
