The photography was very good. Along with the acclaim of the songs the cover photograph of the album was also very much liked by the critics and was called as an artistic one.
The fans will be delighted to have this piece of music in their music players. The album has surfaced after a long wait from the fans of the singer but it will definitely turn into a surprising package by the singer for his fans. He has put in a lot of extra effort to be back in the music industry with his own charm
Many a times his music has sunken slow and the balance of composition and vocals have lost in the parts of songs, this could have been made better if the singer would have chosen to sing on his own pace instead of getting louder than his vocal quality. Over all the music are good and the lyrics have great charm to it.
The singer has given a long waiting time to his fans, who will be delighted to have him back while others can expect him to give more in his next album as this was not up to the expectations of many people around in the music industry.
