Every year Tamil Cinema gives us some lovely songs to cherish. Let us look into the Top 10 Music albums of 2018.
1.Petta : Though the songs came towards the end of the year. Anirudh’s magic worked big time and gave us a Rajini music album to cherish. The highlight of the album was Marana Mass and Ullala. A peppy album which will be elevated even more with the visuals.
2. Chekka Chivantha Vaanam : This was A.R Rahman’s best Tamil album in a long time as he hit the bulls eye once again with Maniratnam. The BGM was on a different level and helped the film become a blockbuster. Mazhai Kuruvi was the highlight.
3. 96 : Music was the soul of the film and Govind Vasantha gave us a soulful music album to cherish for a life time. The song lyrics were perfectly complimented by Chinmayi’s stirring voice. Kadhale Kadhale with Chinmayi and life of Ram were the picks of the album. The visuals of life of Ram had a dream like quality.
4. Pyaar Prema Kadhal : This was a Yuvan special all the way. He reserved his best for his home production with a wholesome music album. All the songs were chartbusters to make a stirring comeback and tell us that he is still relevant
5. Pariyerum Perumal : A perfect album for a strong film by Santhosh Narayanan. It screams oppression and makes our heart melt. All the songs had strong visuals. But the pick was obviously Karupi En Karupi
6. Kaala : Again an unconventional Superstar album by Santhosh Narayan. Again a fight against oppression with Superstar as the focus point. Urimai meetpom and Vaadi En Thanga Selai stand out.
7. Kolamaavu Kokila : An Anirudh special with some lovely songs which complement the mood of the film . Kalyana Vayasu was a viral hit but my pick would be Gun in Kadhal.
8. Vishwaroopam 2 : Though the film was lacklusture the album was mesmerizing especially the revamp of Gnyabagam Varigiradha.
9. Immaika Nodigal : An underrated album by Hip Hop Tamizha. The pick of the album is the song featuring Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi
10. Vada Chennai : This was Santhosh Narayanan’s year as he beautifully brought out the essence of Vada Chennai through some lovely songs.
