After bringing you three curated lists of ‘Top 25 Songs of 2016’ yesterday, here’s the second piece of the year-end round-up series where we select the ’10 Best Albums of 2016′. We at Only Kollywood have arrived at this list after careful consideration and well thought-out discussions. YouTube views and Radio Check datas are not the yardsticks that merited our selection but the ability of the composer to produce a lasting, fresh soundtrack.
PS: We have considered albums of films that released only during this year. Oru Naal Koothu and Thaarai Thappattai, despite being terrific soundtracks, were excluded since both were part of our 2015 Best 10 Albums list.
10. Chennai 28 Part II – Yuvan Shankar Raja
After a melodic, rooted album in Dharma Durai, Yuvan Shankar Raja hit a sixer with a vibrant, youthful soundtrack in Chennai 28 Part II and kept up with the reputation of the first installment. Soppana Sundari and Nee Kidaithai were long time residents on our playlists, while Idhu Kadhaiya was a wonderful throwback to Yuvan’s earlier melodies.
