Aahaa Kathal Vandu
Singers: KG Ranjith
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar

The album begins with an eerie composition in western harmonic minor scale- which is typical for Imman’s tracks. The nostalgic styled rhythm section and passionate vocals by Ranjith add much to this interesting track. While the lyrics go in an introspective manner, the interludes support it well with peculiar usage of trumpets and timely violin solos.

Hello Hello
Singers: Papon
Lyrics: Viveka

A funky composition sung by the velvety sounding Papon in the midst of gripping acoustic guitar. The usage of dog barking in the midst of harmonica and electric guitar and live drumming is definitely a novel experimentation.  The Rumba styled guitar in the interludes is another masterstroke by the composer.

Singers: Sunidhi Chauhan
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar

The album goes to a Jazzy mode with a groovy number sung by the extremely talented Sunidhi Chauhan. This track is definitely a challenge for her to sing out of the box from her usual aggressive voice. She pulls it off with excellence and masterful orchestration is a highlight. The soothing trumpets blended with lilting guitar is another asset.

Kathal Nallavana
Singers: Elfe, Singdha Chandra
Lyrics: Viveka

It is time for a peculiar blend between Modern Rock and Smooth Jazz. The timely piano touches and Snigdha’s power packed vocals take the front seat with great ease. There are faint resemblances to the Rock and Roll genre in the interludes as well but the track progresses in fun mode throughout its progress.

Eyes On You
Singers: N/A
Lyrics: N/A

A thumping theme track with impressive sequencing and good rhythm section arrives next. The masterful electric guitar carries the rightful thump and the lead guitar freaks out with confidence and passion. Despite its short duration it makes sure the impact is felt.

O Baby Come With Me
Singers: D.Imman, MLR Karthikeyan
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar

The album arrives to a finale with an essential alternative rock track sung with great vigor by Imman himself and MLR Karthikeyan. However, the track has international flavor much more than the Tamil nativity. But the guitar chord progression and usage of Sitar solos in Carnatic Raaga Naatai and Mandolin solo in Carnatic Raaga Kaanada is indeed a great experimentation.

Verdict: Imman comes out of his comfort zone for Valiyavan – The album is purely situational and may work well with the visuals.
( 2.75 / 5.0 )
