Although Coke Studio 11 seems to make an effort by launching songs in 11 languages, including Kalasha, Balochi, Punjabi, Urdu, Pashto, Sindhi, Farsi, Hindavi, Arabic, English and Siraiki, the audience once again reports disappointment.
Some people vented out on Twitter, with one person even suggesting that the music franchise should take a break and think things through.
Mujeeb compared the season to the last government.
Coke Studio so far is more disappointing than PMLN government in last 5 years. #CokeStudio11

This person avoided the whole thing altogether.

Some interesting analogies were made up.
Mera pia ghar ayh new version seems like a tussle between two main singers. #CokeStudio11

Qadri reminded people of how classics were ruined in previous seasons as well.
Coke Studio amazingly ruined the song ‘Piya Ghar Aya’, thanks for destroying another masterpiece. Highly disappointed!#CokeStudio11

Another user pointed towards Momina Mustehsan fans for promoting what he thinks is a bad song.
If now. Roye Roye is going to get more views than Piya Ghar Aaya.
Then you eventually know who were the audience and why they clicked Roye Roye #CokeStudio11

Ahmad spoke about a long-standing problem of our entertainment industry: overacting.
Abu Muhammad & Fareed Ayaz badly ruined ‘Piya Ghar Aya’ with their over acting. #CokeStudio11

One user had to seek therapy in older coke studio seasons.
The new song by Sanwal and Attaullah was such a disaster I had to listen “Sab Maya hay” on a loop to restore my faith in Coke Studio. #CokeStudio11

And finally some advice.
Never knew coke Studio 11 would be so boring. I guess they should take a break for a couple of year and come back with something less boring. #CokeStudio11
