Music Review (Tamil): Tik Tik Tik

Music Review (Tamil): Tik Tik Tik
Music Composer: Imman

Tik Tik Tik suffers largely from the Yuvan Shankar Raja's limited vocal range and the serviceable tune. Sunitha Sarathy's humming interspersed with the Yogi B's typical rap being the only highlight of this track. The tune is strictly average stuff from the composer despite throwing random konnakol in the half way. Imman strikes in Kurumba where Sid Sriram's vocal prowess lifts the song level. The improvisations and the classical touch in the Charanam portions are easily the song's highlight. Imman's consistent beautiful arrangements with the tinge of classical cues in the violin solos makes this one highly enjoyable track in the album.

VinVeera's optimistic Madhan Karky's lyric is prodded by the predictable flashy hard rock guitar strums and blaring drums. Ranjith explosive singing aside, the track has very little scope to clasp the attention of the listeners and Sri Rascol's rap portions are mediocre one. Kurumba's reprise version is crooned by Mirthula Siva and the reprise version is a laborious listen with all it's carnatic improvisation is replaced by more mod sound. The track's original versions works despite the sincere rendition by the lead singer.The theme tracks Race against time and Far beyond Earth are filled with techno sounds as expected and the latter track works exceptionally compared to the former one mainly because of the hanuting base melody despite filled with predominantly synth sounds throughout the 3 minute instrumental track.

Verdict: Imman plays safe in his 100th album and confined to his comfortable zone with Kurumba being the easy winner among the other tracks.

My Rating: 7/10

Pick of the Album: Kurumba
