This one's marred by rubbish (horribly distorted) sound as well, damnit. Although I'm a bit on the fence in regards to 'An Evening In Paris' [review] ; I keep thinking I should like it a lot as it's Shankar Jaikishan in their good period, there's plenty of rock'n'roll, Paris... the problem is I'm not able to find many strong melodies to latch on to.
OK, the title track is quite good, and 'Leja Leja Leja Mera Dil' is pretty close to excellent, but that's basically it. The rest kind of feel like missed opportunities. I dunno, maybe I'm too demanding; two (or one and a half) out of nine really ain't that bad as soundtracks go. Maybe it'll still grow on me.
Annoyingly, it's the best song here that suffers from the worst sound quality, ever. So as a bonus I've added a DVD rip of 'Leja Leja' to the download; it's still not very good but at least less distorted. And in case it's just my copy of this that sounds like crap (the vinyl looks pristine enough though, so I'm guessing it's the entire pressing) and anyone has a better version, please feel free to share in the comments.
