After two extremely successful albums, D Imman and Prabhu Soloman is back again with Kayal. The expectations are high. Will the duo satisfy their fans? 

Paravaya Parakkurom
Singers: Haricharan
Lyrics: Yugabharathi

The amazing Haricharan is given a template that allows his reverberating voice to hit the sky and come back. A proper rock song embellished with the violin parts, chorus and acoustic drums. Muted guitars, ghatam, harmonies during the lead and rhythmic synchronizations pack the song real tight.      

Yengirinthu Vandaayo
Singers: Shreya Ghoshal
Lyrics: Yugabharathi

There is always a winner when simple lyrics and Shreya Goshal collide. The heavy cello strokes along with high-pitched flute solos take you to an exploding juxtaposition of pain and outcry. The very first strong BGM land onto a typical hit-melody sangathi that is cuddled by the tabla. The over-lapping instrumentation is a huge plus to the song.       

Koodave Varamaathiri
Singers: Alphons Joseph
Lyrics: Yugabharathi

Alphonse Joesph’s rawness brings out the pain in the number. High production values like the echo levels in the voice, transposed chords and gentle xylophone give one more tearjerker.            

Yen Aala Paakkaporen
Singers: K.G. Ranjith, Shreya Ghoshal
Lyrics: Yugabharathi

A song that will instantly put a smile on your face. Shreya Goshal’s treble free voice with a highly accessible tune is bound to be a chart-buster. Guitar strums, ghatam and a softer Ranjith in the latter half of the song are a surprise.  

Unna Ippo Paakkanum
Singers: Haricharan, Vandana Srinivasan
Lyrics: Yugabharathi

With the acoustic guitar setting the tempo, Haricharan and Vandana Srinivasan follow the prelude right away. A fast paced melody treated with a powerful, yet progressive brass sections in the first BGM. The vibraphone, chimes and the unnoticeable subtleties lend this number a hit tone.     

Deeyalo Deeyala
Singers: Gopu
Lyrics: Yugabharathi

Resembling an impromptu folk song, this track is groovy and foot-tapping because of the tambourine. The brief piano in the middle is Imman’s genius. Toy versions of the recorders and clarinets animate the song differently.

Yenga Pulla Irukka
Singers: Balram
Lyrics: Yugabharathi

The Soothing Vocal of Balram, grating grand piano, flawless flute and the angelic chorus sessions are purposefully used to make your eyes go moist. A killer track that is likely to grow on you, if given some time and space. The sudden change in pace further levitates this feeling. Imman’s special understanding on the sound dynamics is obvious with the use of the timpani and other effect based instruments.    

Verdict: Imman - Prabhu combo strikes gold yet again!
( 3.25 / 5.0 )
