    Hmm.

    I think the song is good, but not great. The chorus is pretty blergh to me (but the verses are GREAT). Hard to see how well it does, but if Belgium can come up with killer staging and if Eliot is good live, it could do very well.
    It's not the song that matters, but what you do with it.

    Haven't heard the full song yet, but seems not so promising ...

    The song is really weirdly structured. The beginning and the verses are pure upbeat electropop but the chorus is very anthemic. It almost like an alternative ballad? Immensely hard to rate.

    Couldn't agree more. It ends up being quite a generic song, not the worst of the season but it fails to stand out.
    Still, I like it better than Blanche and Sennek.

    Heard the full song. The chorus is pretty bland and there is no climax in the end to enchance the whole song. I guess his vocal ability is not strong enough to pull a memorable high note in the end. But I like the pre-chorus though.

    Now heard it as well and am super disappointed. Guess that's what 2019 is all about. Can't actually imagine that it will grow on me either.

    Well, it's not awful at the very least. The synth-filled verses are fine (the kind of thing I'd usually edge towards actually). They certainly were a surprise, one of which couldn't have been guessed from the snippet. Then arrives that pandering chorus. You've got the verse there to woo those looking for something a bit edgy at their Eurovision, and then you've got the chorus to make sure everyone else is invited along too, except for me. Any hope I would have had of enjoying this properly is stripped away the moment that refrain hits. I want the full thing. This is watered down stuff, and too calculated for me. I dislike the vocal style as well. Far from being the worst song of this year, but yet another one I won't care for. Better at least than Blanche.

    I'd say this will probably do pretty well for Belgium. Top 10 isn't out of the question. A lot will depend on how it's presented.

    I like it. Very '80s. A bit disappointed by the chorus. It could have been much better. But the verses are really good.
