      You either love or hate Eurovision and I am proud to say that I take a small amount of pleasure in it each year. My friends throw Eurovision parties and dress up as different countries, on the night of the competition. This two disc compilation collects all the entrants from the 2008 year.

      Gisela's 'Casanova' is cheerful and upbeat, if not heavy on the cheese. Her girly vocals are a delight though and it is a promising start to the album. No Angels are big buisness in Germany and their song 'Disappear' could not have had a more apt title. It is unmemorable and weak in melody.

      Sebastien Tellier takes time off from his usual dance ventures to offer the French entry. 'Divine' is an acceptable affair, without pushing the credibliity. Greece's Kalomira sings' Secret Combination ' which is a pretty exciting affair, with sprightly vocals and slightly mysterious lyrics.

      Ireland really fell flat this year, Dustin The Turkey tackles the dire 'Irelande Douze Pointe.' A novelty hit with hideous shouty vocals, a lack of tune and lack of general direction. It was a bad move and one of the worst entires for the country in recent years. Head instead to Euroband who pull out all the stops for the anthemic 'This Is My Life.' A surefire pop track with a thunderous bassline and darned catchy hooks.

      Pirates Of The Sea turn in 'Wolves Of The Sea' which is another novely esque song. A rousing chorus, but does not stand up to repeated listening. Sweden are usually reliable so it is good to know that a former entant, Charlotte Perrelli is in the contest. 'Hero' is typical Sweden, brash chorus, blonde woman belting out catchy verses and good production too.

      The album culminates with Ani Lorak getting slinky on the sexy sounding 'Shady Lady.' A delicious beat and a strong melody means the album ends on a high.

      43 tracks and the usual hit and miss stuff that you would expect from Eurovision, fans will have to own it of course!
