Beyond the senses by Astrix!

One of the best electronic/trance tracks you'll ever get to hear.

I have posted my favourites somewhere in the previous pages ! Now I am playing OLD mukesh/asha time Hindi songs, non-stop for a week. Anything above 128 kbps bit rate is sounding too good on my amp. Anybody could suggest some good collection of the 'old is gold' hindi ? What I have is a mixture of few CDs and some P2P downloads.

I suggest you pick up some good collections from Music World in the old Hindi sections. But make sure they are not cover versions.

Currently, Stricken by Disturbed. I start playing air-guitar when the guitarist plays his solo... Have got a couple of funny looks by passers-by.

I can listen to Hotel California 5 times in a row and still continue without getting bored! You might like Billy Joel's 'I Love you Just the Way you Are'. The guitar chords and saxophone will haunt you. I started liking many songs that are played in the car with sub and amp, which went unnoticed in the home system.

Many 'old is gold' versions sound worse than the radio in the car. The amp and sub are silent in most songs. May be cover versions will enhance the listening experience.

Has anyone heard Avial?

They are an alternative rock band that sings in malayalam. You may or may not know the language, but they are definitely worth a listen



Also do listen to their other song Chekele. They have an Album out too.

I second that - however it's still not the best track to show off...

Though I m a music freak I don't like any song in particular when it comes to driving. I definately like to listen to fast number as they help in overcoming fatigue especially in case of driving on long stretches. Sometimes I do listens to ghazals while returning home from a late night party or from a long and exhausting day at office!

The Avial album rocks in the car. Its one of the best Indian Rock acts. The Sound production on the CD is also brilliant.
