    I don't have much more to add to what you said, but I have seen a few people bump up against the "simplicity" of the lyrics being an issue for them. Voyager have a long history of writing some pretty incredible songs, so complex lyrics and themes are not something out of their grasp - I do believe it's a deliberate choice. The sheer amount of musicality and shifts in the music is already seeming like too much for a lot of people to take in (so many "I don't get what this is supposed to be" reactions out there), so the lyrics remain simple because the message is simple. It's all about finding that little bit of solace in a fast-changing, scary world - all you need is to hear someone tell you it's gonna be alright. I think damn near everyone can relate to that sentiment these days, whether they think it makes for simple lyrics or not. The chant for a chorus? It's an international song contest - what's the quickest, easiest way to unite an audience of people And that's before you take language barriers into consideration. Smart choice.

They won the televote in Australia decides 2022 and SHOULD have gone to Eurovision INSTEAD of Sheldon Reiley! They know how to put on a light show, that's for sure! I've heard this MIGHT be the last Australian song at Eurovision - in that case, they saved the BEST till last! You said it reminded you of Muse, well I love Muse too!

    This song is so good! So much power, and the combination of instruments is very interesting. It all feels very professional and well written and has a good balance of all the different elements. The melodies in this really stood out to me especially, and I totally agree on the last chorus as well. I don't have any problem with the chorus hook; I kinda see it more as a double chorus if that makes sense? And I think it gives it quite an anthemic feel.
    I think this one is being a bit underrated by the fans, but I'm sure it's gonna do really well in Liverpool. Voyager are an experienced band and I think we've seen they can perform.

    I am saing it aloud now: Voyager will do VERY well at public vote. Top 3 will be very possible there, possibly loosing only to Loreen and someone else. They have big chance to be top 5 of the entire contest. If they won't be top 10 (minimum) my faith in music taste of Europe and Rest of the World will melt faster than snow last winter.

    I like the syncopation that feels like uncertainty (hoping for promise) that is fulfilled more and more in each chorus

    That major G at 6:34 I noticed as well, crazy thing the guitar solo stays in G minor mostly. I was so blown apart by the energy of this song, what a great piece

    'Gladiator' features harpsichord heavily in the instrumental breaks of the song. You loving and appreciating the harpsichord just re-opened the wound of not having Jann as the Polish representative. It's been a month and it still hurts.

      when i heard her mentioning the harpsicord i thought about Gladiator too. i still wish he would have gone to esc, his song and himself are much more interesting and have way more depth than Blanka's, i still can't believe the jury did him so dirty!! but at least now he's getting the recognition he deserves :)
      i also wish she would react to Gladiator, maybe after the contest, i would love to hear her opinion and i'm sure she would really like it!

      @@lea-la-reveuse Thank you for your support! As for Rachel's opinion, she listened to the song and wrote down her impressions in a comment under her video on Blanka. I believe she gave it 8/10.

    The Oh Oh chorus is a total crowd pleaser and catchy in itself. This is a band that does live music too. You can see it. Every one of them is an awesome performer. Love your review. I hadn't heard the harpsichord! Damn. 10 out of 10 for me.

    I wasn't sure when I first heard this but it is easily in my personal top ten. Given some patchy Australian public marks in the past few years, I do wonder about this song's chances but it should go through from semi-two quite easily.

      Esc Tom did the numbers on this, according to him Oz only wasn't seen by the public vote once, so way less than the esc commentators make it out to be.

    @th5841Год назад +4

    This is defenitely one of my favourites this year. Your only critique about the «Oh-oh’s» in the chorus didn’t put it any down for me, though. It was using the voice as an instrument in a purpousful way imo.
    I think the only slight minus for me must be along the originality scale. But I like this genre, so they are forgiven.
    8.5/10

    The lead-in "burp" sound the singer does at the start of each line is mildly irritating, but I quite like this song. I didn't think I would after the first listen, but it's growing on me. That guitar/keytar solo at the end is epic.
    I hope they can pull it off vocally live as there are lots of high belty notes in this, from both singers. I want it to qualify, just so I can hear Graham Norton describe it as "heavy metal", as he does with anything that sounds remotely like rock music to him 🙂
    I remember him describing Maneskin as heavy metal at the time, which made me laugh (and hate him even more).

    @thomasmcguire95110 месяцев назад

    I loved your chordal analysis and agree completely. I think the vocal hook being super simple is just a way to make the song more relatable as so much of the song is over the top complex in terms of style mash ups and dynamics in the rhythm section. I normally dislike that kind of monosyllabic chant style chorus but here I think it actually works given the context. T

    Hope they will go to the final they are one of my favorites.
    What I find a little less good is the quality of the lyrics.
    I'm a little more demanding when they write in their own language.
    N. B. : If I had to vote based on my nearest neighbor I would have to vote for australia🤔

    It's definitely better on the second listen, when your ear emphasises the guitar over the oh-oh-oh, but I wonder if they should have combined the oh-oh-oh with someone speaking a word or two.
