Milliblog Annual Music round-up 2014

Another year ends. Another annual music round-up! Milliblog’s 7th annual music round-up, to be precise. A couple of broad changes. I’m not going to make the lists really long (with long lists to please multiple composer fanbases), and restrict myself to top 30 in each of the 5 languages I track music regularly. Except Kannada, […]

Vandha kadha is Yuvan’s turn to pull an Anirudh – punchy techno gana, obviously powered by Gana Bala! Pachchai vanna has a gorgeous melody, though Yuvan’s package, despite the tantalizing sound, is very, very familiar. Pookkamazh is an intriguingly likeable techno-dance number; more than the catchy sound, Karky’s senthamizh verses make for an absorbing listen! […]

Superman‘s manic rhythm and aggressive sound work well, and Wajid’s singing accentuates it too. Radha nachegi‘s sound is almost hammering, but the tune has spunk! Madamiyan would make Salman Khan proud – almost his genre; noisy and utterly predictable. Shruti Haasan rocks Joganiyan, a tune that starts off well, but the composing duo’s penchant with […]

Vellaikaara Durai (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Ammadi un azhagu continues where Inji iduppazhaga left, and does so in style too, aided generously by Sathya Prakash’s vocals. Kaakka muttai has the inimitable Vaikom Vijayalakshmi completely owning the rocking tune, even as Imman’s pulsating music adorns it all through. Koodha kaathu is pleasant, though also perfunctory as a melody, but Haricharan and Shreya […]

Dangerous, No money no love, Lovers of the sun & Lift me up – Listen (David Guetta) I know this album has been universally mauled to be blah, but strangely, I kinda liked it. The tunes are sticky and I won’t complain about the overall sound all that much – it works for me. Portrait, […]

Mukunda (Music review), Telugu – Mickey J Meyer

Chesededo‘s pulsating tune plays beautifully in contrast to the expansive, thrumming background. Daredumdadum is relatively simplistic and predictable, but the orchestration is enchanting, while Chitra rules over the other predictable, but sweet track, Gopikamma. Arare chandrakala is very foot-tapping in a very Mickey-way and is superbly sung by Sai Shivani and Karthik. Nandalaala, despite Swetha […]
