Irandam Ulagam, Non-musical music review:
Irandam Ulagam, Harris's first album in the year 2013 is finally here. He is joining hands with Selvaraghavan for the first time, who's known for giving us good songs in his movies. And, Kaviperarasu Vairamuthu is penning the lyrics. So expectation is already high, it's even got bigger after that stunning trailer.
Album contains six songs plus one theme music.
First song Kanimozhiye, sung by one of my favorite singer, Karthick, is instantly catchy. A beautiful melody to start the album. Harris at his best. Next song En Kadhal Thee, sung by veteran SPB is his trademark melody with excellent lyrics from Vairamuthu. Next song Mannavane En Mannavane, is like a folk song sung by SakthiSree and Gopal Rao is another good one in the album. These three are my favorites in this album.
The other songs Panangalla sung by Dhanush and Vinnaithandi by Vijay Prakash gives you that "Engeyo Ketta" feeling. Raakhozhi sung by Hariharan and Sriram, is a different attempt from Harris, but not among his best when like other songs by Hariharan in his music.
Overall a very good album from Harris after some "sothappals" last year. He is in good form, thanks to director Selva and especially lyricist Vairamuthu. Hope he continues it in his upcoming albums Endrendrum Punnagai, Yaan, etc.
