As I was saying, that last one wasn't actually K. Babuji's best effort. This one, recorded a year earlier (although the film appears to have been released later) is a fantastic record, and I love it to bits.
Why? The super infectious funk-pop of 'Pyar Ka Tum Badla', the freaked-out sexiness of 'Aankh Ladti Hai', the beautiful trippiness of "Toob Sab Ki Mata", the oddball country-soul of 'Surangani', the harmonica driven spaghetti western vibe of 'Title Music', to name a handful, is why. Really though, every track here is good. Fellow blogger Mr. Naidu once suggested that 'Parmatma' may be the best RD Burmanesque soundtrack written by someone else, and he has a point. You can hear the likeness, but you'll also find similarities to Kalyanji Anandji so maybe it's as much the era as any one influence. I'm sticking my neck out to claim this is among the best Bollywood soundtracks written by anybody. It is a pretty much flawless, absolutely killer score. Get it!
