iPhone 6 Nee Endral
Indru Netru Naalai
Naane Thaan Raja
The Conquest of Time
Hip Hop Tamizha’s second outing packs a punch with its increased use of live instruments, albeit offering lesser variety. The composer’s efforts to banish his areas of criticism is evident, he is here to stay.

iPhone 6 Nee Endral: Singer – Hip Hop Tamizha
Hip Hop Tamizha gets both the singing and the swag right in the album’s opener, but what draws the curtain is the high point of the song which doesn’t deliver the full quota. Typical start.
Indru Netru Naalai: Singer – Shankar Mahadevan, Aalaap Raju
Shankar Mahadevan and Aalaap Raju form an awesome combo for this track which comes in grandeur. The eye-opener here is the august use of live instruments, which was absent in the composer’s debut. Watch out for those beautiful string interludes. OUR PICK
Kadhale Kadhale: Singer – Shankar Mahadevan, Padmalatha
The composer slightly reworks the previous tune with a touch of liveliness, to create a track which is equally imposing. The music is more computerized here, but the icing on the cake is Padmalatha’s vocals along with Shankar Mahadevan who is in sublime form. OUR PICK
Naane Thaan Raja: Singer – Anthony Daasan
With the use of a nifty beat, here comes a track which is adequately entertaining. It deals with the travails of the lead on the time machine. Anthony Daasan is good, the autotune not.
The Conquest of Time (Theme): Instrumental
The base tune from Shankar Mahadevan’s tracks is kept intact here, with dashes of flute, strings, xylophone and a lovely vocal bit. Dubstep finally comes in and ends this one on a high.
