Music Review (Tamil): Yaman

Music Review (Tamil): Yaman
Music Composer: Vijay Antony

Yem Mela kai vacha gaali is a tedious listen, largely owing to the monotonous tune and Annamalai's pedestrian lyrics doesn't help either while Vijay Antony spruces up the proceedings with his vocals and tinge of jazz in the arrangements. However as a whole, this song stays low-key one in the album. Damelo Damelo has an interesting prelude hook and composer utilises in a much better way while Saranya aces the singing part with her earnest energetic rendition. Though the song has nothing much to offer musically, singer and tune make this one passable listen and helps to sail through unscathed.

Kadavul Ezhudhum rides mainly on the lead singer vocals especially Janani Iyer's effortless rendition, however languishing tune by the composer is a great let down and the arrangements are monotonous except for the brief violin solo in the second interlude Sigaram Chella's orchestration is grand and anthemic filled with string sections similar to every song of this genre. The short under 3 minutes song ends majorly as background'sh material rather than as a song. The singers made the song afloat till it ends.Neeye Thaniyai is an another optimistic piece by Vijay Antony and the song fared much better due to its congruous tune and string-laden arrangements. Jagadeesh scores well with his energetic rendition and composer makes this 3 minutes song with an engaging orchestration.

Verdict: Vijay Antony's Yaman is highly generic one without any interesting elements to offer both musically and lyrically.

My Rating: 6/10

Pick of the Album: Neeye Thaniyai
