It’s obvious the singer’s going in a much more downbeat direction with the melancholy compositions and a sombre voice. But interestingly, there are very few artistes who can be in personal relationships with his/her fans to make an impact - sometimes, an artist does need to talk things out with life over slow, joyless melodies and has a different story to tell. To me, Arnob does this with flair with his overall lyrics, which are quite confessional and a little sad.
And sometimes, the mystifying depth of a song can be the best part of an album. For example, track six Biri has a very psychedelic and atmospheric feel with the use of slide to make wavy guitar sounds and the haunting keyboard effects to compliment the words Haat theke biri porey jay, prithibi ke ghera neel kaachtar dike takiye...thot theke chumu jhorey jay – I felt a natural high without a touch of substance abuse but it does intrigue one to comeback to see this song through the bubbles of a drink stronger than a soft drink.
And according to some of his fans, this album has lighter songs...songs that are sweet, simple and pleasant which people love. My friend Arafat Kazi asked: can you listen to track five Iniye Biniye without loving the music? Certainly not. Arnob's fans are very happy with the rhyming patterns of the lyrics and the song does shout out loud a lot of creativity with the music.
