Composition[edit]

Samar Puri explained the kind of songs the album has, "In this album, we have focused on straight Pop. We've tried to keep this album easy to listen to and appeal to all audiences - it has massive dance tracks, pop/rock ballads and progressive pop/rock songs. There are a lot of vocal hooks and cool synth sounds that's new in this album. To add a little variation, we have added an acoustic song too. Some of the songs I wrote like 'Jaan Gaya' and 'Teri Aankhon Se' are very personal to me."

Quesh said, "the one element that always stayed with each of us was the pop element. We always managed to bring that element into which ever style we tried. We all enjoy playing and listening to a lot of different genres and this shows in our album. Even though our focus has been pop, we still have our own way of expressing our music. This is obviously influenced by our past (which was full of rock)"
