Got my Raghu Dixit CDs on Friday and have been listening to them ever since. Here is quick and dirty review. Overall, as a friend said, “They seem to be influenced a lot by Indian Ocean & Euphoria.”
- Hey Bhagwan – Nice song. Already had it and love it.
- Mysore se aayi – Feet tapping and fast paced song. Again I already had it and love it.
- Gudgudiya Sedi Nodo – The best song of the CD!! The song is fast and the lyrics very nice 🙂
- Ambar – I had first heard this song in Delhi, and the song has grown on me since.
- Khidki – Not that great musically, but nice lyrics.
- No man will ever love you like I do – Brilliant lyrics!
- I am in Mumbai – Brilliant song – last heard it in Pilani.
- Soruthudu Maniya Maligi – Slight blues effect on the song. Nice feel to it. Again, like Gudugudiya, attributed to Shishunala Sharif.
All in all, a very nice debut album. And a def must get considering it costs you only 180 bucks (including shipping).
However, I expected Har Saans Mein to be on the CD, and also it to focus slightly on other group members. I know Raghu is the man behind the band but they do deserve some space on the CD.
