Olivier Rocher from France
After a very classy, almost Scandinavian ballad in 2015, Greece is going back to basics. This year’s entry is 200% Greek! “Utopian Land” is a clever mix of tradition and modernity. Chorus in English, verses in Pontic Greek, local instruments and rap sections… Well it’s weird, unexpected from Greece, but not 100% bad. Of course, the staging will make the difference, but I cannot see such an act doing well on Eurovision stage I’m afraid. It’s far too ethnic, a rather repetitive. The real utopia here is qualification…
Andreas Athanasiou from Greece
I am greek and I do feel that I will represent the majority of Greeks by saying this: I do not like it. At all! Just because you put traditional instruments doesn’t mean it is traditional. The rap is a mess the greek lyrics literally kill me. Stab me in the heart by being awful. But the worst part is the two girls singing the chorus. Horrible english lyrics, accents and voices that do not match this messed-up genre. I am sorry for being so nasty but that’s how I feel. I will be very sad to see Greece qualify and let other decent songs behind in the Semi-Final.
Victor Cruz Lafuente from Spain
One of the disasters in this year’s Eurovision, although I have to clarify I love Greek music. When the song starts it gets my attention and makes me waiting for Yorgos Alkalis to appear saying his wonderful “Oooopa” but when the female signer begins to sing the world turns around and the disaster begins. This song is not worthy of the wonderful history of Greece in Eurovision during the XXI century, personally as Greek music lover I’m disappointed (I can not imagine what the Greeks feel …). The song is an unstructured mess of traditional Greek music and rap. I hate to say this, but Greece does not deserve to qualify for the final.
