The contest has its usual quota of hunky guys brought to you this year from Russia,Israel and Denmark and its share of sexy girls from Ukraine,Poland and the chicks from Germany.
From the sublime to the ridiculous this years contest does not disapoint on any level ( check out Ireland, Belgium,Bosnia and France in the "annual" strange category) but as we all know anything can happen on the night and i'm sure it will!!
This is a great compelation cd that really is worth a purchase,go on... you know you want to!!
Unfortunately, there is also a lot of filler on this album. It includes what could be the worst Eurovision entry *ever* - and let's face it, the competition in this race for the bottom is pretty stiff! I'm referring (of course) to Ireland's talking doll Dustin the Turkey and his abominably bad "Irelande Douze Pointe". Sure, it's supposed to be parody, but...naaah. It was thankfully voted out already in the semi-finale. The trashie doll apparently ran for Irish president at some later point, but was voted down there, too. Otherwise, the so-called PIGS crisis might have become...well, interesting. Not to mention the Northern Ireland peace negotiations.
Overall, the Eurovision public gave most of the freak songs thumbs down this year, and I don't blame them. For some reason, Sweden's strong act "Hero" with Charlotte Perrelli was also dissed by the ESC faithful, despite a major promotion campaign during which Perrelli even visited Albania! People in Sweden still talk about Perrelli's fiasco, five years later. We still haven't gotten over it. It's a damn good song, OK? (Malta got it. Thank you.)
Due to the large amount of crazy static on this album (which includes 43 songs!), I only give it two stars. Good as cultural studies, perhaps.
There are a lot of dance tracks this year which will be played throughout European clubs in the summer. The funny award goes to Iceland (have you seen the video?!) Then there's the real Eurotrash catagory, like Estonia's entry for example.
The kids will be voting for Latvia (you've got to admit the chorus is catchy - a bit 'Flogging Molly' style.) However the stand out track for me is Serbia's entry 'Oro' by Jelena Tomasevic feat. Bora Dugic, which I could listen to again and again.
The major disappointment comes in the form of the British Entry - Andy Abraham. I usually love the style of music he chooses to sing, even owning one of his albums. However his Eurovision entry does nothing for me, it is nothing new. So once again, Britain has no chance of winning Eurovision. Not just because of politics (which plays a massive part), but because it continues to choose rubbish songs.
dics one contains:
andorra: a great song that alas didnt get to the final
albania: a decent song and a good singer
armenia: feisty up tempo stuff and very catchy
azerbaijan: a nice tune but you can barely hear the words
bosnia & herzegovenia: a song that had a very daft performance but without that it's quite good
belgium: a pleasant little number
bulgaria: funky music but not much of a song
belarus: decent pop music but nothing special
switzerland: a superb song that alas didnt reach the final
cyprus: pleasant but not memorable
czech republic: decent pop
germany: nice but a bit low key
denmark: over performed but a good pleasant song

spain: a catchy little ditty. you'll either like it or hate it
finland: good hard rock
france: pleasant but a bit unmemorable
united kingdom: not bad but nothing special
georgia: a nice song but it never quite grabs
greece: excellent catchy song
croatia: nice music although the rap section gets in the way
