First things first - I am not a music expert, just a regular Indian film music lover, just wanted to say what I felt about the songs after listening to them a couple of times. Just layman's point of view. With that being said lets dive in to my review

1. Vaanganna

Easily the biggest track & the main USP of the album. A rough version was leaked months abck and it was a rage among fans and netizens. It as absolute rocker of a track, mixed with 'dappam kuthu' elements. Vijay sound suits the song to a 'T' and he has done a great job just like all his previous 24 songs. Voice of Santhanam also featured in the song.

Verdict: Chartbuster 4/5

2. Thalaivaa

This is one song which could turn up the biggest hit of the album post release, but everything depends on the film. If placed at right situation this song has enough elements in it to create goosebumps. A pulsating, thumping, heartbeat racing anthem, especially for Vijay fans.

Verdict: Thumping 4/5

3. "The Ecstasy of Dance" (Instrumental)

Very good theme, nice use of instruments. Suitable for showing Dance Skills

Verdict: 3.5/5

4.Sol Sol

A Typical romantic duet number, nothing special, but not bad either. Its pretty much hummable. Visuals & the chemistry of lead pair could take the song to higher level [or may be not]. A typical GVP number that could be shot in mountains, valleys, hill sides etc...

Verdict 2.75/5

5. Tamil Pasanga

Feels like an intro song for Vijay's character set in Australia. Another above average/average song. Could expect a dance heavy video & choreography. Don't think the song has it in to go beyond that level even with the video.

Verdict: 2.5/5

6. Yaar Indha Saalai Oram

A nice melody. The best melody in the album. Soothing music & voice takes the song o another level.

Verdict: 3/5

Final Verdict: 3.25/5

A Good, different album - Much better than Thuppaki In My Opinion [I was not a fan of Thuppakki songs, except the first two lines of each song the songs were just average]. A non Massy album, so might take its time to catch up among non-fans, but still worth a buy, easily the best music album of the year
