The wait for a Rahman album when you know one is round the corner somehere - is just unbearable...as I discover here - waiting for JoK (Jillunu Oru Kaadhal) to release.....
And so while I waited I heard KANK(Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna)
KANK is by SEL(Shankar Ehsaan Loy) . Quite an anti-climax considering that this was one of the most anticipated ost of the year (since its a KJ - Karan Johar movie). Not that I had high hopes (specifically because it was a Johar movie ..he he ). The songs are quite bland and sound somewhat like Karan Johar's earlier movie songs.
I feel that the SEL trio have not composed what their usual fun stuff is but rather have been bound by KJ. SEL are good ..an intelligent lot but they need to be given their space as is the case with Rahman.
My recommendation - hear it once or twice - some songs might grow on you but on the whole expect nothing extraordinary.
