Therikkudhu Masss
Singers: Ranjith, Shankar Mahadevan, Yuvan Shankar Raja
Lyrics: Madhan Karky

A sublime Hip-Hop and House styled high voltage number marks the beginning of this much anticipated album. Shankar Mahadevan’s upbeat vocals add like an icing on the cake in the midst of superior sequencing and contemporary riffs. The real fun begins when the track takes the folk pathway with an overdose of trumpets along with a indigenous choir styled changeover as well.

Naan Aval Illai
Singers: Chinmayee, Karthick
Lyrics: Madhan Karky

This delicately woven duet has kaleidoscope like orchestration on a poetic platform. The most fetching aspect of this composition is the lead melodious vocals fusing effortlessly in the background of dubstep rhythm.  Karthik and Chinmayi make no mistakes in elevating this experimental track with their confident vocals. It is indeed amazing to see a rhythm based composition creating a contrasting meditative effect!

Singers: Pooja, Yuvan Shanakar Raja
Lyrics: Gangai Amaren

A musical potpourri with flavors such as 80s Pop, street styled folk music and trendy Hip-Hop beats. Yuvan’s energetic vocals follow the fun filled rap pathway with incredible persona. The timely appearance of the tantalizing flute is one of the biggest highlights. This track attempts to present a funky side of the horror theme with a new-age vantage point. Despite the spookiness in the chorus, there is a hidden entertaining dimension associated with it!

Con Man Theme
Singers: N/A
Lyrics: N/A

A feisty take on Therikkudhu Mass with superimposed layers of Punjabi rhythm section, street folk, New York dubstep sequencing and a heartwarming crescendo bass work which would tingle the listener’s senses.

Singers: Vaikom Vijayalakshmi
Lyrics: Madhan Karky

The album takes a different route with an eerie solo having the realistic vocals of Vaikom Vijayalakshmi.  Delicate touches of Grand Piano and masterful symphony hit the bull’s eye and opens up new horizons of musical experimentation. This track would surely take the listener to a detour beyond boundaries with an everlasting impact.

Masss Theme
Singers: N/A
Lyrics: N/A

A creepy track with a chorus which is instantly fear-inducing, thereby leading to a passionate electric guitar solo. The masterstroke occurs with the advent of symphony supported flawlessly with an ironic rhythm section. 

Therikkudhu Masss (Gasa Gasa Mix)
Singers: Ranjith, Shankar Mahadevan, Yuvan Shankar Raja
Lyrics: Madhan Karky

It is time to hit the dance floor with a paced up remixed version which sets new benchmarks for contemporary mixing and redefines the term “Party Fun”.  The additional layers of rhythm and sequencing add fuel to the fire for the already energetic composition.

Verdict: The successful combination of Venkat Prabhu & Yuvan Shankar Raja strike again, this time with more experimentation and vivacity!
( 3.25 / 5.0 )
