Aalaap - Music Review
Music By: Agnee
The album starts with Ek Nayi Roshni which starts with the strumming of the guitar and the percussion coupled with Mohan's voice. The song sounds good because of Mohan but it doesn't go above anything we've heard that is rocked based and therefore doesn't stand out.
Dil Ye Awaaz De's intro is brilliant with the child artist repeating the title of the song and the male chorus in the background. The song is well sung with the chorus being impactful.
Paa Paraa Paa sounds like a piece from a Hollywood musical as the lyrics follow that formula. The guitar is once again used in this song but it is the piano trance as the song becomes soft midway.
Soniye has a nice guitar intro and then breaks into a ballad with an unexpected dhollak. It reminds me of Mitwa from KABHI ALVIDA NAA KEHNA.
Shuruwat Pyaar Ki is a good song but it doesn't have anything that makes it remarkable. It blends in with the rest of the album but was clearly not made to be a chart topper. There is not anything that I like or dislike about this song.
Chadhti Jawaani sounds like it is an item song. It is not very popping as it doesn't hook have a good chorus or interesting beat.
Overall the album doesn't have any particular song which stands out so that the album could gain some attention. The songs are good though just not memorable.
