    ROCKSTAR Music Review: AR Rahman is a rockstar

    Cineswami had anointed Vishal-Shekhar’s RA.One album as the soundtrack of the year. It pales in comparison to Rahman’s tunes for Rockstar
    “I hear music when I close my eyes. When I open my eyes the music does not go away. I often can’t follow the words that people speak, but I get the music of their soul. It’s good that way, because words can lie but music cannot. Pleasant or disturbing, music is always the truth.” These profound words echoing a Sufi saying can be found on the album inlay of the Rockstar CD. The words could very well be a reflection of the musical mind of India’s greatest living composer AR Rahman, the creator of the Rockstar soundtrack. Ranbir Kapoor may be the star of the film and Imtiaz ‘Jab We Met, Love Aaj Kal’ Ali, the creator, but Rahman is the driving force of this musical. Not so long ago, Cineswami had anointed Vishal-Shekhar’s RA.One album as the soundtrack of the year. Though undeniably good, it pales in comparison to Rahman’s tunes for Rockstar. This masterpiece of an album greatly benefits from some truly inspired lyrical poesy by Irshad Kamil. Mohit Chauhan has been chosen as Ranbir’s voice for the album and he delivers in spades.
