Vande Mataram User Review:

  1. For people who are into contemporary Indian music, Rahman is peerless, he is head and shoulders above....this album just proves that point, "revival of vande mataram", and "Only You" are songs that touch your heart....i would recommend this album to anybody interested in indian music, this is actually a collection of patriotic songs focused on india, but its patriotism is not chaalu or corny in any way....the music along with the lyrics combine to produce an effect which will lead you to dig deeper within yourself and question your feelings towards your country
  2. The really good thing about this album is that there is conscious attempt from Rahman to take a route very uncommon in traditional Indian Pop music(or for that matter any kind of Pop music)--that of a spiritualism and soulfulness. It's quite funny when you think of it--there isn't even one love song in the whole "pop" album. There is patriotism, religion, a call for peace, anger, hope,intensity, calmness ....everything but your regular pop love song. And though all songs are in Hindi(well actually there is some Sanskrit, Tamil and some English too..), this album should also appeal to International music fans as it has very instrumental feel throughout the whole album. And by instruments I don't just meant the traditional Indian Tabla, or Sitar or anthing else inherently Indian...there is a good mixture of Western Instruments as well...
