Music Review: Muthirai (Yuvan Shankar Raja)

Muthirai album was released without any ad / information that eventually made me not to expect much from this album. Surprisingly the album turns out to be a pretty decent album. Usually Yuvan shines well in three/four numbers and falters in the rest. But in Muthirai almost all the songs are good.

With Naresh Iyer's and Manjari's melting vocals, the melody "Azhagana Neeyum" turns out to be the pick of the album. Absolutely delightful song with good lyrics. Manjari's rendition and smooth vocals definitlely add a good feel to the song. Next good number is "Om Shanthi Om", a rock base club number. Powerful orchestration and the superb singing by Neha Bashin makes this song stand out. What surprises me here is the core melody of this club number is too good. Wonderful composition.


"July Maadhathil" sung by Md Aslam, Rahul, Thanvi and "Uyire Uyire" sung by Javed Ali, Madhushree are equally competitive melodies. What makes the latter score low is the singer selection. Javed ali has sung it neatly with only few errors while Madhushree...hmmm.

Swetha shines well in "Nenjukkulla" but the song is too short to make an impact. Another club number "Night is still young" is the only song that did not appeal to me. Not to mistake. Give it a listen. You may like it. :)

All songs in Muthirai have the stamp of Yuvan. A very much satisfying album. You will not be disappointed. Enjoy!

Regards,
Vinith...

Hey, can you review Mothi Vilayadu? Music is by Colonial Cousins duo HariHaran and Leslie Lewis. I heard that the songs are good.

Vinith said...

Yeah Ramesh. Listened to the album. Good one. Bombay JS song was my pick. Overall, it gave me the feel of a private album. But still the songs are good. I'm a kinda lazy to write review for that and Pokkisham. Pokkisham songs are really good.

I'm really really happy that you are awaiting my review. Modhi Vilayadu review will be up by tomorrow. :)

I guess Yuvan is again getting back into the track after some bad releases last year... Songs are really good, and once again, a good review vinith... :)

Vinith said...

Yes. Yuvan is reaching greater heights. What surprised me here is all the songs are worth listening. You just cannot ignore any song.

Achilles said...

True but do we really need the remixes here.. i dont like the remixes in the album.. Nevertheless, a good album from Yuvan...

Vinith said...

Remixes add nothing but count. That is why I did not specify even a word about it.

Another point to notice here is, those two remixes are no done by Yuvan. Somebody by name Adithya has done it. :)

Mothi villayadu songs are not at all appealing to my ears... I expected something different from C cousins

Vinith said...

Babu,

Yeah. Songs are not great... But composers cannot be blamed as the movie is a typical Kollywood masala movies. Two songs have come out really well. Rest are pretty average.
