“Tarkan Needs A New Sound”, Claims Dilmener
Naim Dilmener, Turkish music critic, claims that Tarkan needs a new sound. In his section “Musical Diary” in the September 2010 issue of “Milliyet Sanat”, the Turkish art and culture monthly, Dilmener critiques Tarkan’s 2010 album.
Dilmener states that Tarkan’s new album is clearly better than his previous “Metamorfoz”; “It has the color and taste of albums like “Ölürüm Sana” and “Dudu”. Tarkan’s vocal style is just like the style he had in his heyday.” Dilmener adds, “except the song “Öp”, however, in his new songs, there is no room for new musical experiments which would help Tarkan move further. These are like the polished versions of Tarkan’s good old songs; they will be popular for a few months but in the meantime, Tarkan should take a step back to reflect on his work. He needs a new sound. He can’t say “I will go back to my roots”. This is not enough. In addition to Ozan Çolakoğlu, he needs to work with people like Nezih Ünen and Tarkan Gözübüyük, people who would be brave enough to experiment with a new sound for Tarkan…”
