Our "Kangal Irandal" James Vasanthan is back with his second album "Pasanga".
This album is a solid proof that his success in Subramaniapuram music wasn't a
fluke. His work in "Pasanga" is genuine.
The first track that impressed me is "Oru Vetkam Varudhe" sung by Naresh Iyer
and Shreya Ghosal. A beautiful melody with breezy lyrics. Not just the beautiful
Violin and flute interludes that make this song astounding, the vocal
combination of Naresh and Shreya as well. James has struck the right chord in
choosing singers for this melody. Next "Kangal Irandal" is ready to rock the
Composer's idea of choosing Legend Balamurali Krishna sir for the beautiful
"Anbaale Azhagagum Veedu" works like a charm. This song features lovely chorus
of kids. Use of solo violin in the second interlude is awesome. I couldn't help
but excited when I listened to this song. This song is comparable to A R
Rahman's "Nee thaan en Desiya Geetham".
Orchestration part in fast paced "Nandhan Goppanda" is good. Sadly this song
failed to impress me even after two, three listening. Composer's attempt in Rock
genre for the song "Who's that guy" is quite good.
