New Release: Mazyar Fallahi – “Ghalbe Yakhi”

After many bootlegs comes Mazyar Fallahi’s official album debut. The album contains 13 tracks of which 8 are previously unreleased and 5 are old favourites. The title “Ghalbe Yakhi” is taken from the popular television series which Fallahi has sang the opening theme for. Except for two lyrics by Amin Bamshad and two arrangements by Pourya Ahmadi the rest of the material is written, composed and arranged by Fallahi himself. Mazyar Fallahi who started off as a Shadmehr sound-alike has through recent years built a solid fanbase through his trademark style of ballads. I personally really like his vocal tone and musical style, its soothing and suitable. However it also lacks range and tends to get über-sentimental. So it remains to be heard whether a long-playing album with such material will sound as a single long song or a collection of songs with diverse sounds!
