5.0 out of 5 stars Eurovision at it's best! 25 May 2003
Format:Audio CD
This was for me a quality year of eurovision song contest.
Iceland started the contest with a real bang! Among my other favorites was the beautiful song from France, the romantic ballad from Poland, and many others like Germany, Sweden, Ukraine and Norway (my home country) managed to move many hearts.
This is probably the last of the good traditional eurovisions, since now, new rules apply.
So celebrate the Eurovision song contest 2003 with me, and buy this CD, and discover music that you've never heard before, but that will go on in your CD player for driving, dancing, or listening for many months to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nil points? Not a chance! 13 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
The UK may have famously finished the night in Riga last year with nil points, but this cd wins a firm 12 points from me ;)
I love Eurovision, and I had always thought it a shame that I would not be likely to hear many of the songs after event. However, with this cd, I can sit back, relax, and remember last year's event. 2003 was a great year, with a very close contest for first place. A number of songs are really catchy, staying in your mind after a listen. I really love the entries from Iceland, Germany, Russia (this song is not typically Eurovision, and had many people surprised to see tatu in the contest, yet I feel they performed a very respectable third!), Spain, France, Belgium and Romania. The UK song isn't actually as bad as many would believe!
Basically, if you love Eurovision, and/or found yourself enjoying the songs last May, then snap this up! Its great to play while we wait for Istanbul, on May the 14th!!

5.0 out of 5 stars baltic bliss 15 Nov 2003
By Jason Jesson VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
One of the best Eurovisions for a long time. Despite the awful Alf and terrible twosome from the UK, the overall quality was as upbeat and catchy as ever. Turkey deserved to win, but stiff competition from the forever usually 2nd place malta and an offering from Belgium that somehow grows on you!
If you are looking for a good reprentation of the best of Eurovision, then go for a compliation, but for those who are truly into Europop, you can't go wrong with this cd.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pop Magic 1 Jun 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Eurovision has arrived - and its arrived in style this year!! Long gone are the days of cheap and tacky songs - hello to the new kings and queens of popular music!! With the odd exception (i.e. Austria) the singles on this album are pure class - happy tunes that will put you in the mood for a cheesy Saturday night out!! Some outstanding performances delivered by winners Turkey as well as many others that fill this 26 song album - great value - great tunes that will have you dancing round your livingroom for many years to come - Rock on Eurovision!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars It's good 21 May 2003
By anders.
Format:Audio CD
Rumors had it that this years competition were gonna have a weak field. I'm happy to report, that's not the case.
In fact there's quite a few could-be winners, besides the obvious favorite of Russia, the teenage-duo "Tatu". The real quality lies in the pop-ballad from France, which proves to be better with each listening. But it won't win, on the other hand watch out for the Eastern Europe Eurovision-wonder which continues here with happy, catchy songs from Ukraine, Bosnia, Slovenia and hosts Latvia.
As I've dared to write this before the contest, two countries seem to stand out to challenge Russia for the #1 spot, and that's Germany and Spain, both with nice, classic uptempo songs.
But the last few years have proven that it's harder than ever to predict a winner, but that's easier to cope with when there are as many good songs as this year!

As the decade progressed the Eurovision Song Contest, soon to celebrate its half century, was getting bigger and better. In 2003 a record 26 nations sent songs and the show even included a live link up with the Mir Space Station to allow its cosmonauts to start the voting back down on earth. The night had all the ingredients for a memorable contest: a great collection of tunes, incredibly close voting and the first ever win for Turkey thanks to established star Sertab Erener and her crowd pleasing, belly dancing sapphic harem. By the narrowest of margins (just three points separated the first three songs) she beat off the challenge of another pseudo-sapphic act Russia's t.A.T.u., the biggest stars to enter the contest since the Seventies. Erener's oriental-sounding winner became a hit in many countries, a welcome boost to the show's fortunes after the previous two Baltic winners had flopped commercially. Making their debut in 2003 was Ukraine who quickly became a Eurovision big hitter (and on only their second attempt went and won the thing the following year). The UK on the other hand, a past master of Eurovision, came last with the dreaded 'nul points' thanks to an infamously off-key performance from the hapless duo Jemini (sounding perfectly adequate here on the CD). The signs were clear; the nations of 'Old Europe', complacent and underperforming, were now being increasingly beaten at their own game by the new Eastern kids on the block.
