Battee Da Sawaal by Hamza Malik ft. Hannah Butt A nice little acoustic melody with some soft humble vocals from Hamza Malik and nice interlude by Hannah Butt but quite satirical lyrically; this is new age patriotism taking a jibe at status-quo in Pakistan and denouncing political leaders and their promises. This track is more of a plea by common man; he doesn’t need change, revolution or promises, he just needs basic necessities. This message is what sets this track apart from other tracks, this is purely coming from masses not meant to evo....

Zinda Qaum by Imam Syed Zinda Qaum is one of those satirical pop rap track that reflect the current situation of Pakistan. Sonic quality of the track is not the great since synth beats are not that resonating and overall gives a weak feeling and Imam Syed’s voice doesn’t really do justice to the lyrics since his voice is more hollow lacking that sarcastic texture like Ali Gul Pir and Begharat Brigade more suited for a traditional pop track. Lyrically the track is great since it conceptually portrays a bottom up ap....

Maine Us Se Yeh Kaha by Laal A conceptually genius of a track; the lyrical ingenuity is staggering as it was first penned during 1960s but it still applies to the current socio-political turmoil in Pakistan. This is basically a satirical poem written in response to a conversation Habib Jalib had with Hafiz Jalandari (Ayub's Advisor) during the time of Ayub Khan's dictatorship. Melody wise it’s a nice little acoustic track focused on communicating the depth behind each word then striving for musical maturity. Again new age....

Rang Saaja Do Pyaas Bhuja Do by Noori and Farooq Ahmed (Aaroh) Patriotism is not only cherishing your country and saying kind words in respect but is about bringing true change and this track represents the change in terms of environmental preservation. Noori and Farooq Ahmed collaborate to bring a really catchy melody; opening the track with a quite looping percussion and sitar-violin affects then its move onto the full rhythm section with vocals stepping in. For me Ali Hamza does a great job he has that hollowness and passion behind his voice to convey th....

Naya Jahan by Noori feat Anaida New age patriotism that what is reflected in this very dance oriented poppy track, the essence of this sort of nationalism is to preach love and harmony across borders since we live in a world where weapons of mass destruction are at arm’s length and thousands of deaths await. In order to avoid such catastrophes a quest for a Utopian society is imitated where you find a friend in every other person, where boundaries are there but peace and harmony is preached by all.
