2016 – Best of Tamil Film Music

A year of good music in Tamil, albeit less ground-breaking than years back. D. Imman’s incredible arsenal of melodies and rhythmic treats flooded listeners with a deluge of pleasant tunes. Anirudh Ravichander’s Rum stood out as the most creative and well-produced album amongst a sea of “musical” pieces, integrating reggaeton, electropop, and in general sounding like a well produced Western pop-album. Santhosh Narayanan and A. R. Rahman also delivered high quality output throughout the year.
