Aayiram Aayiram
Singers: Chinmayi Sripada
Lyrics: Kutti Revathi

Like one of the songs of Evanescence, here is Chinmayee’s angelic voice for a gothic like music. The drumming and the guitars are the lifeline of the song. The uncanny pianos and the sudden breakdowns are sending the message.

Naanae Varuvaen
Singers: Swetha Mohan
Lyrics: Uma Devi

Just a microphone and Shweta Mohan’s voice is enough to do all the magic. An unplugged song treated like a monologue of sorts, the deep lyrics substantiated by the chords and effects in the background render a soulful track. The string sessions and no set pattern to the rhythm arrangement becomes the show-stealer.

Thoonga Kangal
Singers: Shakthishree Gopalan
Lyrics: Kutti Revathi

Based on a soft-rock like composition, Shakthishree’s bold voice clinches a highpoint throughout this melody. The acoustic guitars and the controlled drumming give a relief from the saddening tune.

Always A Woman - Score
Singers: N/A
Lyrics: N/A

This is a piano dependant track filled by the chorus and the strings. With the tunes growing and overlapping with each other, the overall travel of the piece gets interesting.

Hope & Despair - Score
Singers: N/A
Lyrics: N/A

An extension to the Thoonga Kangal, the strings driven track has got lots of highs and lows and spaces to feel the emotion. Dating back to the Ilayaraja days, this is a heartfelt piece from the composer.

Darkest Hour - Score
Singers: N/A
Lyrics: N/A

Put the head phones and feel the ambience. Proposed to infuse ambiguity and fear, the track does it all by the usage and the handling of certain instrument in a particular manner.

Verdict: A neat genre specific album that might appeal to you after a few listens!
