When it comes to Indian film music it is hard to beat A R Rahman to the beats. His compositions are easy for the western ear to appreciate as he brings in not only traditional and contemporary Indian melodies and rhythms, but also mixes them up with beats and instruments of modern Western music. He is so prolific and original in his composing that he is known as the Mozart of Madras in his homeland, and now, thanks to Danny Boyle's fantastic new film, Rahman's music is reaching a much wider audience, especially now he has won a Golden Globe for Best Score/Soundtrack. The music fits the film so perfectly, but also stands as music worth listening in its own right. And let's not forget that London's MIA also features on this album too. If you want to get a true flavour of Indian fusion music then this is a great place to start. And if you find you like the Rahman's sound then also check out the soundtrack for Taal - although there are plenty more he has done.

Three or four of the tracks are really really great! Have some best bits of Eastern modern music. The rest is ok, avarege, nothing special for me, but I've bought the album for those 4 and I don't regret it.
