For once, I was not particularly aware regarding the audio release of a new AR Rahman album until I chanced upon a review in one of the flimsy film sites calling the album of “24” a surprise- in a negative way. First of all, I would never understand how anyone who calls themselves a thorough reviewer can attempt to write a judgement on an ARR album within a couple of hours, and after listening to the tracks merely once. In fact, I’ll go even further and say this actually applies to the work of all musicians worth their salt.
Sid Sriram, in an AR Rahman composition. Has that combination ever gone wrong? No AR Rahman Tamil album is complete with even the least of Sid Sriram’s voice nowadays, and Mei Niagara comes across as the best song of this album.
