    Meh, I only liked the Sabri Brothers tribute in this season so far (no matter how hard Atif tried, he just couldn’t destroy a song that inherently freaking good), and the QB song was good too but Uzair Jaswal ruined it with his overacting.Recommend

    Rockstar is indeed an awesome performance by Ali Zafar. He showed his incredible vocal range in this satirical song that took me by surprise. I also enjoy the versatility that the Strings duo has brought to Coke Studio. I am a great admirer of Rohail Hayat but after 6 seasons he had become too predictable and seems like was running out of ideas. I will never forgive him for Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s Charkha. How can someone take the most vocally gifted and dominant singer of modern times and produce such mediocre work is beyond me. The album sounds like is produced on Fruity Loops software and is really unimaginative other than a tack or two. I know that what I said above was off the topic a bit but nevertheless I needed to vent this in a public forum. Recommend

    Amazingly sung, basically Ali has kind of defined himself and most importantly he has re-invented himself once again. Seeing so many praises for this songs makes me feel amazing. The most amazing thing is that Ali has composed this song just in 3 minutes. I’m really proud to be his fan a.k.a #AZianRecommend

    Since when was Roshan a “rockstar”, though admittedly he does have a sneaky look about him.Recommend

    Well, at first i was very much excited for Ali Zafar’s Appearance in Coke Studio 8, but to be very frank it was disappointing, May be because Atif’s performance was awesome and ali could not take it to that level. Although celebs like roshan and mahira are praising it but it was disappointing Recommend
