Music Review: Aadhavan by Harris Jeyaraj

Much awaited album is out! What does this successful "Harris-Surya" combo have to offer! Let's check it out!

"Hasli-Fasli" is the pick of the album (Probably the only good number). This peppy number with catchy English verses is impressive at first listen itself. Karthik at his best once again! While the passable "Varaayo" sung by Unni Krishnan and Chinmayi, is a trademark melody from Harris. Unni Krishnan seems to have lost enthu. Strangely, his rendering isn't impressive this time. "Yeno Panithuli" flows aimlessly.

"Dheko Dheko" has some impressive music arrangement, but falters tune wise. I like the interludes particularly the second interlude. "Masi Paasi" (Sung by Mano, Mega) and "Damukku Damukku" are forgettable numbers. It's disheartening to hear the versatile singer Mano's voice in the weakest track of the album!

To put it in nutshell, Aadhavan turns out to be a big disappointment! The sound, music, arrangement are very monotonous and thus very very boring! Considering that Harris Jeyaraj's next album will be out only in 2010, Aadhavan music is not enough to fill this gap. Hope we will not forget this composer! :)

I like Hasili Fisili and Vaarayo... My opinion is you can get good numbers from Harris but cannot expect too much from K.S.Ravikumar...

More than KSR, I was looking forward to this HJ-Surya combo. But disappointed coz of that. otherwise, yes, we cannot expect much from KSR LOL.

harris jeyaraj is the best composer next to rahman at present... so, no one can critize his music
