It has rhythm, meaning and spunk! Sunday’s music has the love-at-first-sight-image. All nine tracks keep you wanting for more. Not even a single song will exhaust you or get that yawning reaction, frequently heard these days.

To build a song on an abstract thought of a missing day in a week is a task. Sandeep Chowta’s high dose music nullifies that fact. Missing Sunday’s lyrics penned by Farhad Sajid bring out the mystery and thrill of a day gone astray. Mahilia Kamath, Suraj and Earl Edgar’s vocals compliment Chowta’s music.

Pakistani bands can give competition to any home grown composer. Especially when it comes to the Sufiism in their music, vocals and lyrics. One can’t help but get addicted! Pyar to Hona hi Hai composed and sung by Pakistani band Suroor is a love song with a difference. They love the guitar and so do we. Kamran Ali’s voice may resemble Soham Chakravarthy’s voice in bits and pieces. This song gets full points!

No one can beat Daler and Sunidhi Chauhan’s vocals in the song Loot Liya. They sound splendid. At first it might sound like Kala Kauva, Daler Mehndi’s famed song played at all events. The lyrics certainly saved Sunday’s song from being blamed of cut-copy-paste. The lo-loo-loo-loot liya will stay on everyone’s mind undoubtedly. This is sure shot to hit the nightclubs for some desi mazza!

After listening to three brilliant tracks of this album, Kashmakash may be dismissed by music lovers. But this song also has its own charm. Shibani’s voice creates the club atmosphere one would just want to lounge around in. Virag Mishra’s lyrics sound different. Although Shibani’s music sounds tad bit similar to that of Dus Kaniyaan’s title track.

Raghav Sachar’s music cannot go unnoticed. His Manzar does make an impact. The clap sounds made on the drum will steal your attention. One would want to add this in the long drive collections. It has the beats one wants to groove on. Kamath, Suraj and Edgar create their magic again.

Despite having different musicians aboard, this album has managed to stick out from the rest. It has everything a music lover would want to hear. They have maintained a theme and none of the songs sound out of the place. This is the pick of the season!
