The season's 13 songs left a mark on many of its listeners.

It seems like yesterday Coke Studio's season 14 took off with Abida Perveen and Naseebo Lal's 'Tu Jhoom'.

As more songs were released, be it the Baloch-pop song 'Kana Yaari' or the upbeat qawwali 'Thagyan', the show increasingly impressed fans everywhere. The season recently closed with Faisal Kapadia's first solo 'Phir Milenge' and fans are turning to social media to thank the team behind Coke Studio for the many songs they came to enjoy.

One Twitter user labelled season 14 as the "best season" of Coke Studio so far.

Another said season 14 created a "genre of its own".

For this Twitter user, it felt patriotic to discover that her non-Pakistani friends also loved Coke Studio.

"Now that it's over, [I] just want to say that Coke Studio's season fourteen absolutely destroyed all expectations and created a completely insane product. Truly stellar ambition and entirely world class effort all round. Great addition to the third age of Pakistani pop," read a tweet.

For one user, the music franchise "exalted the concept of modern and traditional music in Pakistan" and said that for years, this season will be remembered as the moment Coke Studio "peaked".

One user chose Kapadia and Young Stunners' 'Phir Milenge' as her favourite and wrote that the song was "a bridge between generations", adding that this is exactly how the season should've ended and appreciated Coke Studio's assistant producer Abdullah Siddiqui for his efforts.

Another user commended Coke Studio's executive producer Xulfi for making everyone "fall in love" with the current season.

For some netizens, the latest season was filled with experiments and blends of genres and music styles that the creators successfully pulled off.

"[Coke Studio] shall be remembered for offering a perfect amalgamation of the country's finest past and present," said a user, calling season 14 "an epitome of collaborations in the Pakistan music industry".

Another user never followed the franchise up until season 14 came along.

For many, season 14 was therapy for the soul.
