Music Review (Hindi): Waiting

Music Review (Hindi): Waiting
Music Composer: Mikey McCleary

Tu Hai Toh main Hoon is the simple breezy song where Anushka Manchanda's ( frequent collaborator with Mikey Mccleary) husky lovely vocals steals the show. Mikey kept the arrangement neat and clean with guitar backdrop accompanied by string sections in the midway. In Got My eyes on you, Mikey Mccleary switches into retro rock and roll mode and arrangements are top-notch and highly frolicking one dominated by wonderful sax and horn sounds throughout the song. Though Mikey's vocals didn't work much for me, overall the song is enjoyable one till it lasts. Composer returns back to laid back territory delivering another cool song waiting for you where once again he roped Anushka Manchanda  to croon this pleasant song dominated by guitars and keys. This song takes me back in time to Mikey Mccleary's Little things you do for me in TV dinner album. Composer ends the highly soothing soundtrack with Zara Zara where Kavitha Seth's coarse vocals along with Vishal Dadlani makes this song works. Mickey's arrangements featuring lovely piano notes, string section along with Sax makes this one compelling listen in the soundtrack.

Verdict: Mickey Mccleary's solo debut soundtrack in Bollywood is lilting, pleasant and refeshing listen similar to the composer's Indie album TV dinners.

My rating:8/10

Pick of the Album: Zaa Zara, Tu Hai Toh main, waiting for you
