Ram Gopal Varma's (RGV) music doesn't always get the cash registers ringing,yet his thriller background scores always make a mark. With his next film 'Go', this, too, fails to happen. Let's see how.

Sneha Kanwalkar composes and croons 'Dhan tan tan' along with Kunal Ganjawala, a song which is completely musical, not in the sense that it is high on melody but in the sense that the arrangements in the track are just too many. Agreed that using a lot of instruments make a track turn out pretty good at times, but not here where they get all muddled up.

The title track, 'Go', tends to be quite a downer as it doesn't have the zing necessary for a title song. Composed by Sneha and penned by Nakul M,'Go' has Kunal crooning to it but with Suzanne and Meenal Jain this time.

The title track is a bummer.

'Kaash' comes in next and has some shades of being composed under the RGV banner. The arrangements are thankfully milder here giving the audience some space to listen.

Rendered by Sunidhi Chauhan and Vinod Rathod, 'Oooh' is up next. It aims at being seductive, passionate and sensual, and 'Oooh' does that but only in the way such songs usually turn out in Ram Gopal Varma's flicks. Milind's lyrics can go take a hike but then what poetic words can one really expect from such a track?

Next is 'So cool'. It is a song that wouldn't go down well with the crowd either, as it just doesn't hold interest.

Not one track in the album makes for repeat listening.

The new talents that one gets to hear in this soundtrack needed to make their break elsewhere, not in a RGV film where instruments talk louder than vocals. Anyone who manages to get by even the first few tracks of the album will give 'Go' a thumbs down.
