AllMusic Review by

Ask Sarkilari, Vol. 3 collects more contemporary Turkish music from artists such as Gökhan Özen, Athena, and Sebnem Ferah. While all of the music on the compilation has a more or less contemporary feel, what that means exactly varies from song to song. Özen's "Dön Çarem" takes on some of the character of a mainstream pop ballad; Metro's "Mevsim Sonbahar" sounds a bit like Turkish trip-hop; Baris' "Ölu Çiçekler" borrows a relatively straightforward guitars/drums/bass rock arrangement. Meanwhile, Athena's "Rüya," Serdar Ortaç's "Sabret," and Yonca Evcimik's "Askim" retain more traditional Turkish vocal and instrumental styles, but still sound distinctly modern. Other highlights include Çelik's "Töre," Ege's "Gül Bahçem," and Taner's "Bu Kalp Seni Unutur Mu?"
