Masss Music Review

Movie: Masss

Cast: Suriya,Nayanthara,Pranitha

Director: Venkat Prabhu

Music director: Yuvan Shankar Raja



1.Therikkudhu Masss-Shankar Mahadevan,Ranjith,Yuvan Shankar Raja

Masss album opens with a purely mass song that will surely make you hit the dance floor. This party number is entirely filled with electrifying sounds that have been composed by Yuvan on a lively note. Shankar Mahadevan effuses craziness with his voice and Ranjith adds the right dose of peppiness. The surprise element of this number is the church choir in the second interlude. Chartbuster!

2.Naan Aval Illai-Karthik,Chinmayi

An effervescent melody that is quiet different from Yuvan's earlier melodious compositions. The rhythm is of dubstep pattern which is foot-tapping and blends perfectly with Karthik's mellifluous voice. Though Chinmayi's portion is less, she spews elegancy with each line she croons. The song is sure to put the listeners into a heavenly trance. Interesting duet!

3.Poochandi-Yuvan Shankar Raja,A.V.Pooja

This energetic number is an eclectic mix of Hip hop, desi beats, melody and EDM. Yuvan's rendition is filled with amusement and he manages to grip his listeners with his innovative tune construction. Pooja's melodious rendition is top class. The occasional flute loops are the icing on the cake. The entire number seems to be composed as a song to attract children. It spooks you as well as entertains you!

4.Con Man Theme-Instrumental

This thematic version of Therikudhu Masss is dynamic and has solid content to keep the listeners engaged. Yuvan takes you on a trip filled with Bhangra beats, dubstep and Hip hop with this grand theme.

5.Piravi-Vaikom Vijayalakshmi

A creepy number that will surely send chills down your spine if you listen to it on a serene night. Especially with the haunting chorus and the equally eerie vocals of Vaikom Vijayalakshmi, this number would linger in your minds if you are a fanatic of ghostly songs. The lyrics speak of death and the departure of soul which makes the track even more haunting.

6.Masss Theme-Instrumental

Up next is an eerie theme that sticks true to the movie's genre. With the occasional banshee screams, the strong orchestration and the lead guitar strums, this theme is definitely a ringtone material. 

7.Therikkudhu Masss (Gasa Gasa Mix)-Shankar Mahadevan,Ranjith,Yuvan Shankar Raja

This is an overloaded rehash of the original version mixed by Premgi Amaran. The number spells 'party party party' right from the word go. A complete pub track!

Verdict:

Phew! Finally, Yuvan Shankar Raja wakes up from his long slumber and delivers a cool & trendy urban album that is sure to top the charts.

Rating: ***3/4
