Music Review (Telugu): A Aa

Music Review (Telugu): A Aa
Music Composer: Mickey J Meyer

Mickey J Meyer opens the album with relaxed folk fusion Yaa Yaa, song where composer incorporates sporadic accordion sounds layered on the folk percussion base. The inclusion of classical portions in the second half with an engrossing rendition by Chitra gives a gracious touch to the song. Abhay Jodhpurkar along with Sai Shivani and Anjana Sowmya handled well Ramajogayya Sastry's lyrics.Rang De is another typical Mickey J Meyer's feel good melody with passable rhythm base and guitar laden arrangements while Ramya Behera, Sai Shivani and Rahul Nambiar handles the tune confidently with enough verve to make the song sail through without any hindrance.

Mickey J Meyer easily pulls off the peppy song in the album Anasuya Kosam, which starts off with poignant violin solo but the song swiftly turns into an enticing track in the album. Karthik did a fabulous job behind the mic as always while composer up the ante with brief rap portions and ample support from conversational lyrics from Krishna Chaitanya.Mummy returns arrangements tread on the standard hard rock and mix of pop techno sounds while Shravan Bhargavi makes it up for this with her engrossing and puffed up vocals throughout the song. Ramajogayya Sastry's marks his presence with the impressive contemporary lyrics in this short song.Composer rounds off the soundtrack with another breezy composition Yellipoke Shyamala where composer employs the transition from pleasant folk tune to upbeat foot tapping percussions towards the end in a brilliant manner. Karthik's fabulous rendition along with Ramajogayya Sastry lyrics makes this one engaging listen in the album till it lasts.

Verdict: Trivikram's Srinivas's first collaboration with Mickey J Meyer turns out to be an ear-pleasing album far from regular commercial potboilers. Though the songs are not an instant chartbuster material, Mickey J Meyer's folk touches in the songs with ample support from lyricists need to be lauded.

My rating: 7.75/10

Pick of the Album: Anasuya Kosam, Yaa Yaa, Yellipoke Shyamala
