Bob Spector I really bought this for the first two tracks. The band wants to do punk takes on Bollywood music -- but these tracks have hearty voices 'way too good for punk, doing lovely tunes over propulsive, heavy, tight instrumentation. "From Darkness" is a fine, a metal-heavy hymn. "Kutch Kutch Hota Hai" turns a perfectly soppy movie love song into a powerful, danceable anthem, while "Chole ke Picche" simply reproduces the spirit of the original. Lyrics are mostly in Hindi, Bengali, Sanskrit. Favorite track: Kutch Kutch Hota Hai.
