When music director Pritam is asked to compose tracks for an out and out commercial action flick, you know there is a high chance of it working for wider audiences. For Race, Pritam composes 6 original tracks plus 6 remixed tracks.
Sunidhi Chauhan and Neeraj Shridhar teams up for what they do best- sing a commercial chartbuster! 'Race Saanson Ki' is fast paced and full of energy- something that is perfect for the dance floor! The guitar solo in the middle is impressive too!
Atif Aslam's name in the credits increases expectations, but 'Pehle Nazar Mein' rises up to the occasion and bowls you over with its appeal. Atif is in supreme form yet again, and Pritam's composition carries a lot of class. Put this on repeat mode and get ready to get addicted.
Shaan,Sunidhi and K.K team up for 'Dekho Nashe Main' which is a below average fare! There's too much noise and the mixture of different sounds doesn't blend well at all!Skip this track!
Taz,Apache Indian and Sunidhi make an appearance for 'Tujh Pe Jo Jadoo' which is worse than the previous song! The song holds no value-the lyrics are meaningless and the composition is lifeless.
A new singer named Monali impresses with her vocal skills in 'Zara Zara Touch Me' which salvages the album to quite an extent. Zara Zara is peppy, youthful and perfect for the dance floors!
The last track of the album 'Race is on my mind' is another version of the title track and emphasizes more on english portions.
The remixed versions are the usual affair. Pritam dissapoints with the soundtrack of Race, one expected far better tracks!
