Dobra večer, everyone! Croatia are starting their search for Eurovision redemption tonight with their selection show, DORA 2024. The first heat will air starting at 20:25 on HRT, but before we get there, let’s take a moment to sit down and review tonight’s group?

Most of the favourites in this year’s DORA are in the second heat, meaning that on paper, this semifinal should be the lesser of the two. But is it really?  Our editors have taken a closer look at the twelve acts competing in thursday’s heat and seen what they have on offer.

Our panel of Croatia critics includes:

  • Here to bump up the scores, Boris Meersman
  • Here to bump down Boris’s high scores, Daniel Theophanous
  • Here to bump down everyone’s scores, David Popescu
  • Here to drunkedly reminisce over personal anecdotes, James Maude
  • Here to defend DORA on home soil, Jasmin Prišć
  • Here to serve as a voice of cromulence, Tyler Griffith
  • Here to serve as the voice of basic gays, Yehonatan Cohen

 

Due to the large size of Dora (24 songs is a LOT), we’ve decided to do matters a bit differently. Every editor was assigned 12 songs to write a review about, which gives you four write-ups for each song. Because there are only 7 editors reviewing, Boris, James and David reviewed more songs than the other four to plug in the gaps. So if you’re a fan of their critiques, you’re in luck – you’ll see them pop up a bit more often.

Each of our editors also provided every act with a score out of 10 regardless of whether they wrote about them or not, giving everyone a nice number out of 70. At the end of our reviews, we’ll post a ranking of every song in order, and tell you which six we feel should advance to the final of DORA 2024 this Sunday.

But before we get cracking, our usual disclaimer:

The below editorial is the opinion of the author(s), and does not necessarily represent the views of ESC United as a whole and its staff members, and does not represent the views of anyone associated with the EBU and Eurovision. Every person that participated is aware of how they come across. They’d better be. ^_^

Let’s get started with tonight’s group in running order. First on the chopping block, is:


01. Noelle – “Baby Baby”

Boris – 7 – “Fun, lightweight uptempo fluff. “Baby, baby” is not breaking any limits or moving any boundaries; it’s the type of “yasssss queen slay” song you see in every selection nowadays, and I mean that not unaffectionately. Basic bops are often the foundation for enjoyable live shows, and it’s good we get to see them in NFs even if they don’t win.”

Daniel – 7 – “Don’t we all love dark pop synths. A fairly simple song, but something infectious emerges along the course. Perhaps the repetitive chorus, slick production and the whole electronic shadowy vibes that come through  makes me appreciate what Noelle is doing here. It’s very catchy, very sexy. I’m feeling this.”

David – 6 – “I’m getting some heavy bad bitch vibes from this song, in a very good way even. Very sexy! A pop-dance track that can tease you and take you somewhere dark and mysterious, and who knows, maybe even naughty place. Anyhow, I do feel that song is a bit dragging, as in it feels longer than it is, but it has it’s catchiness, before it dies slightly out. Could also have needed more vocal power.”

Yehonatan – 6 – “A solid electro pop song that isn’t the most original piece out there but is fairly pleasent to listen to. It has a good track production, and a good enough structure to make justify a qualification for Dora’s finals, but probably not for Eurovision.

02. Battifiaca ft. Ferlin – “Vodu piti trizan biti”

Boris – 7.5 – Every selection has these strange songs that are endearing through their quirkiness – take this one for instance. Two older gents calmly advise us to drink water to elevator music featuring spoken word verses. It’s catchy and darling. It’s absolutely uncompetitive of course but that’s why it’s not there – drinking water is important because it leads to proper hydration – being dehydrated gives you a large spleen, like an oversized spleen, which ain’t good nor is pretty! Artists, after all must stay healthy! It’s a wholesome jazz filler song, which at the end of the day, does not detract from the proceedings.”

David – 4 – “The verses completely fail for me, and feel very out of touch with the style of the song. The chorus however, are quite enjoyable as it is, since it’s a also the parts that feels correctly performed along with the song. I do get a feeling that I would hate this far more, if I knew what they were singing, but since I don’t, it’s quite enjoyable.”

James – 5.5 – “This is one where you’d have to be Croatian to get it. It’s a chill piano song with a repetitive and easy to sing along to chorus with a bit of Slavic rap thrown in, but is this about keeping the planet clean for the next generation or the protagonists staying sober so they can raise the next generation? Or both? Global warming and the discourse around it certainly make me want to drink. But yes, this needs a Cliff’s Notes to accompany it as merely running the lyrics through Google Translate doesn’t help.”

Yehonatan – 4 – “Wow, I respect them for entering the national final at their age trying to rap and have a modern the song. The excusion of course is rather poor with a song that wouldn’t have made it in a Montenegreen national selection in 2013, but at least it’s not boring!”

03. Stefany Žužić – “Sretnih dana dat’ će Bog”

Boris – 5.5 – “IN ESTONIA WE GO TO BOG — Uku Suviste on holidays. Unfortunately we’re in Croatia, so when Stefany goes to Bog she takes herself to church and sadly not in a Hozier way. “Strenih dana dat ce Bog” definitely sounds like what I imagine Creationism Rock to sound like – or is it The Sims 4 Building Menu soundtrack, maybe that too. It’s a cute enough softrock ballad that is perfectly fine and Stefany herself seems lovely. Me personally though – not a fan of the song, and not the target audience for its message.”

David – 2 – “I appreciate how the song gains some tempo as it goes on, but the song is just very empty and doesn’t really offer that much. I’m honestly left without further words, because I just struggle to pay attention to the song.”

Jasmin – 8 – “I have to be honest, I don’t see this song as competitive for the win or being placed too high in the end. However, I highly resonate with the lyrics and I have to like it by default. I just want it to be decent live and I hope she can tell the story on stage to people who don’t understand the lyrics. Lovely.”

Yehonatan – 5.5 – “God will give us happy days” Hmmmm… I’m sure waiting. Anyway, this is a cute little song that really has no business being in any competition but is joyful and has funny lyrics about god. Good for her.

04. Misha – “One day”

Boris – 1 – “I always keep my promises: Misha’s “One Day,” the AI-written wonder aiming for Croatia’s Eurovision glory, gets a (mostly) AI-written write up befitting its rank. For it presents a titillating fusion of chaos and captivation. The title, as groundbreaking as Dana Gillespie complaining about a lack of snow on Swiss mountain tops, introduces a journey through emotion curated by an algorithm with an intriguing case of amnesia post-emotional intelligence workshop. (whatever that means.) The melody ventures boldly into avant-garde realms, leaving Agnese Rakovska to question its musical comprehension. Vocally (or algorithmically), Misha oscillates between binary whispers and glitchy crescendos, making Auto-Tune seem like a quaint antique. “One Day” stands as an unrivaled triumph of artificial intelligence, challenging coherence in its audacious pursuit of Eurovision stardom. (a sentence more coherent than its lyrics). Whether it’s a chaotic symphony or a technological cry for help, there’s no mercy for this polar bear – Misha’s concoction promises to imprint its glitchy legacy on the DORA 2024 as an entry that we best treat like it doesn’t exist.”

David – 6 – “Modern and on-beat, a very inoffensive song in itself. It’s quite cool as it is, but lyrics do feel a bit like nonsense. Unfortunately, singing is required, so can’t just leave the track without any. A shame, since I feel it would work far better like that. I’m all aboard with this style and all, but it’s not as powerful as I would’ve hoped.”

James – 1 – “Why does AI generated art and video always look like the depths of Deviantart were plumbed? I guess it’s appropriate given the repeating lyric of “One day, one day, one day, the mirror’s gonna fall, and you’ll see that everybody’s dancing” sounds like the mantra of an insane Bolshevik. Like telling ChatGPT to craft a Eurovision ready song that sounds like a Marshmello and Karl Marx collaboration. If Portugal’s 1974 Eurovision entry was a signal to begin the Carnation Revolution, I fear for the people of Croatia and what this maddening monstrosity might inflict on its people.”

Yehonatan – 5 – “This style of songs remind me the style of “upbeat” entries in San Remo which are not reallyh up beat, but I have the feeling that they wanted to be. In the end it sounds way more dramatic than it shuold and makes me very confused, which puts it at exactly average for me.”

05. Erna – “How do you love me”

Daniel – 4 – “Erna appears to be singing a song way beyond her years, not so much in the lyrics, but in the style and the gravitas to sing a song like this requires. A soul rockier-sh sounding ballad along the lines of Alannah Myles, but just not quite being able to pull it off. The voice the song requires is one with guttural emotion, a whole lot of life experience to be truly convincing.”

James – 8.5 –  “Once I got over the initial disappoint that Erna is not Godsmack lead singer Sully Erna, and I take off my Independent Truck Company T-shirt and stick my Monster energy drink back in the fridge, I am struck by this awesome blues rock number with a great groove. Kind of like Alannah Myles’s “Black Velvet,” but with some Balkan broodiness in Erna’s conundrum about whether her beau’s love is real and she can begin to reconcile with him. Is she missing the signs of his love, or does she not understand and they’re insimpatico?”

Jasmin – 6 – “Well, this one is an acquired taste, isn’t it? I imagine this song to be very sensual and seductive on stage, at least that is how I would present it. Changes in her vocal give this song depth and it doesn’t bore me for a second. As a drawback, I see it could potentially become flat live but fingers crossed.”

Tyler – 7.5 – “”How Do You Love Me” is kinda good! Not amazing, but I liked the sleek style the music had, similar to something like The Divinyls. I didn’t find there to be a build-up to something amazing though, the entire song just felt like a vibe that you either liked or didn’t care for. The lyrics were basically nonexistent to me though, most of what I enjoyed about the song was the singing and music styles employed. I just like this one, okay?! Maybe Erna will be amazing live and get more fans, I dunno!”

06. Eugen – “Tišine

Boris – 8.5 – “Balkan ballads are a hard sell for me – I’ve always found Zheljko’s repertoire to be safe and overtly competent, white-washed versions of the ACTUAL Balkanic-style ballad. So perhaps to my surprise,  I really connect with Tisine? It’s a solid, touching modernist take on the Balkan Ballad genre (it helps that the chorus sounds like S10’s De Diepte; another beloved ballad of mine) that leaves room for emotional development and allows for good staging. It has a heart and soul. Baby Lasagna is almost certainly winning Dora – Eugen however provides a very strong back-up option should it not work out for our Alien Ant Farmboy, and one that would stand out as an excellent ballad in a year that right now only has the very average “Mon Amour” on offer.”

David – 8 – “Yes, please! Traditional music, where the instrumentation REALLY get to shine! Where the composition goes straight to your heart, and where you can say that music is indeed a universal language. I would’ve loved a bit more power during some parts of the instrumentation, but very beautifully composed overall.”

James – 7 – “A slick, impassioned plea to the void over someone that Eugen has lost (by way of death, not by way of accidentally dropping them behind the fridge). The void answers back, his loved one is in heaven, Eugen can move on. It is great to have some resolution in lyrics, especially since we have so many national selection artists with lyrics where the protagonists are in some sort of self-inflicted purgatory and don’t (or want to) move on. That being said, Eugen will need to communicate these ideas in staging effectively, otherwise the David Popescus of this world will be going, “Pfft, another ballad, 1/10, gimme my G-Fuel and I’ll smacktalk Eugen’s mom while kicking his ass in COD!”

Yehonatan – 7 – “This is your average balkan ballad, it’s very predictable and we’ve seen it in Eurovision many times, but it doesn’t make it bad. It’s actually a pretty good one. Granted, if Croatia picks this, they should have a pretty safe ticket into the final of Eurovision, but there are also stronger options to pick.”

07. Vinko – “Lying Eyes”

Boris – 3 – “Every year there is a stripped down ballad in an attempt at “Real Music” that people tout, and this Dora it’s… not Vinko because nobody cares oops. Emotion is merely the foundation for good music, and stripping songs bare to the essentials kind of takes away from it – instrumentation amplifies emotion, if done well. Instead, Vinko attempts to carry his maudlin ballad by himself through his voice and energy. Unfortunately for him, both are channelling barbiturates and I’m left wondering if I didn’t accidentally wander into a monotonous TikTok-coded ASMR cooking vid.”

David – 1 – “Yaaaaaaaawn…”

James – 8 – “If Croatia picks this, we know HRT will be making a play for the Adult Contemporary crowd that loves a good fingerpicking acoustic guitarist who sings about being an imperfect man trying to score. I do like lyrics that portray complex emotions and have a protagonist you can’t trust (as is the case here). There’s a story here, and you have to figure out if Vinko is on the level and can’t properly communicate or he is deceitful and will say anything to get the object of his affection into bed. You decide, with your lying ears”

Yehonatan – 9  – “Oh how much am I craving for a good ballad to be selected for this year already, the ones we have so far are so underwhelming. Vinko is bring something fresh to the table, something more raw, and gentle, and oh my god does it work for me. Silmane, Dons and Mustii, take notes, this is how it’s done.”

08. Barbara Munjas – “Nepobjediva

Boris – 4 – “Musical experiments are always to be welcomed – by their nature the composer often doesn’t know what they’re doing, but when they pop up in selections they’re usually a flash in the pan that stands out. On this occasion though, it’s a miss. “Nepobjediva” is dissonant and all-over-the-place, and that makes it an exercise in patience, despite a reasonably fun chorus. If this committed to a style (or a genre that wasn’t Jazz Improv – the sonically worst  genre musicians ever came up with), it would be easier to get into, and more importantly, easier to sit through. In order to become good, a song like this one needs more listens than I’m willing to spare it.”

David – 1 – “A very confusing piece, as if it aim’s for multiple genres and completely fails that as well. The song is just very dragging, and not slightly enjoyable at all. I honestly just had no clue what I listened to, so it’s hard to give a proper description. Let’s just say, a disastrous composition.”

Daniel – 6.5 – “I value what Barbara is doing here with Nepobjediva. Flexing her very competent vocal as it fluctuates from rap singing to rock. It’s an interesting and unique proposition for Eurovision, one that signals to Barbara’s qualitative musicality and wide range tastes and offers nuggets of her potential. Unfortunately it doesn’t all quite gel together, but I do sincerely appreciate the effort.”

James – 6 – “I am going to take an Alan Partridge moment and pitch to record companies a female fronted death metal band called Necrodiva wherein Celine Dion songs are performed in the style of Cannibal Corpse. Or maybe vice versa. Anyway, now that that dumb joke about a willful misreading of the song title is out of the way, where were we? Yes! Like this review, it’s a meandering retro piece, kind of sounds like mid-90s No Doubt with vaguely female empowerment lyrics over vaguely ska-rock instrumentation.”

09. Let 3 – “Babaroga”

David – 1 – “The thing about “Mama SC” was, that even if you didn’t understand Croatian, the lyrics were so easy that you didn’t even needed to know Croatian. This song however, is NOT intelligible nor give any idea what It’s about. It even becomes VERY obnoxious with the insane high pitch vocal, that one’s ear might as well just bleed. Music is nice, but that GOD DAMN singing…”

James – 5 – ““The biggest surprise for “Babaroga” is that it is a more coherent and less jarring rock entry than “Mama SC!” That’s not to say “Babaroga” is an accessible to the masses rock song, as it retains enough quirks to be identifiably Let 3, but it doesn’t feel as “try hard” as “Mama SC!” The vocals will still give you a headache, and the lyrics are probably another allegory you’d need to be a Political Science professor at the University of Zagreb to understand. The staging could be naff, and I hope they don’t go with a chicken suit to match the video. Overall, it’s an improvement on “Mama SC!,” but the “OMG! It’s so bad it’s good” trolls may be disappointed.”

Tyler – 4 – “It’s impossible to talk about “Babaroga” without talking about Let 3’s entry from last year, “Mama ŠČ!”, so sorry for the incoming dissertation. To me, “Mama ŠČ!” had a point with its staging and its message being anti-war that I got immediately when the song came out and it also happened to be a banger. It was unique and not something I would have expected, and it endeared me enough to give it votes. “Babaroga” on the other hand, seems like it’s giving no message or too many. When I look at the interpretations of it, the lyrics seem to have an anti-religious message (bold, but okay) and an anti-AI message too based on the art. I’m not sure about this one since it seems in general these Dora music videos were AI-generated, but perhaps not! None of those themes came through for me as a non-native Croatian speaker, so first of all, the live performance needs to be sure about getting some message or theme across to a global audience. I find the music and the autotune to be quite jarring, and if this is supposed to show us how AI is shitty by giving us shitty AI, that isn’t enough for me. People can be truly terrible at making music as well, is it really groundbreaking for AI to provide the same? Is this more about AI stealing content and then providing us this? Seems more of a self-report on Let 3’s previous work than anything. I just would like to know what’s the angle here and then I can properly judge if the song does a good job of conveying what they want to convey as an artist. I have no interest in listening to “Babaroga” again, but I suppose it has potential so I guess a 4/10 for the benefit of the doubt?”

Yehonatan – 0 –Again? Didn’t we suffer enough the first time? Next!”

10. Lana Mandaric  – “More”

Daniel – 6 – “Another ballad of sorts. Lana injects a certain je ne sais quoi, which I can’t put my finger on. Noteworthy lyrics, rather bland verse and chorus but an intricate bridge that incorporates’ interesting synth sounds. There is something worth exploring with ‘More’ but it doesn’t feel quite fully developed.”

David – 3 – “Powerful and unique in it’s own style, but its not for me. I can appreciate it as it is, but it just one of those songs where I’m not the target group, and hence I just don’t care for the song. I believe there is a strong and interesting vocal, and I like that there is some power in the music, with the slightly harsh instruments that stick out, but it’s just too slow for me, so I’m just lost.

James – 6.5 – “More means Nightmare or Sea in Croatian, apparently. I will remember that the next time I am in Split, as asking for “more food” or some such could lead to some comic situations. Anyway, “More” is reminiscent of a ‘90s Adult Contemporary soft rocker, the sort that would be on a soundtrack of a thriller starring Rebecca DeMornay and one of the lesser Baldwin brothers. It is dark and brooding, and Lana could sell the femme fatale who turns your dreams into nightmare, but “More” is largely an atmospheric piece that lacks memorable moments other than Lana’s vocals.”

Tyler – 6.5 – “I find “More” to be a bit of a letdown. The song is full of potential, and I find the build-up in the tempo and chords after the chorus to be really fun! But then it just flops and doesn’t go off like I wanted it to. It’s like when you’re on a roller coaster and you’re climbing to the top of the hill and then you immediately drop down a foot instead and go back on a flat track. I do like Lana’s vocals in here, and I think with different choices made to how the song was crafted, this could be a lot better.”

11. Pavel –  “Do mjeseca”

Boris – 9 – “This is such bombastic 90’s schlager ❤ it’s honestly so cute? Musically, “Do mjeseca” is so dated it hardly counts as retro ❤ It genuintely could have been released in 1987 and it would sound the exact same. ❤ The lack of competitiveness and complete disregard for current pop trends only work in Pavel’s favour though. it makes “Do mjeseca” feel like a fresh breath of air. It’s giving “Mom and Dad have been married for 16 years, have two beautiful school-going children, live in a white-picket-fenced home they’ve bought without a mortgage, working two stable jobs and they still love each other as much as they have from the moment they met on the dancefloor.” I HATE them. Just kidding, I could never, for when they sing affectionate words each other, not having a care in the world as long as they’re together, my heart raclettes into goo. You get that these two complete each other. It’s a wholesome reminder that there still is good in the world worth striving for.”

Daniel – 4 – “Is this song even allowed into the Eurovision when the initial chords of the song sound almost like a replica of Abba’s ‘The Winner Takes It All’. I am well aware of the fact that nothing is original, but the resemblance is uncanny. And as the song progresses, we get serious hints of Coldplay. Where are the copyright strikes?”

James – 8.5 – “A professional, slick and classy disco track about dancing the night away at a nightclub with someone whose pants you want to get in. It’s classy, you see, because they use astronomy metaphors, like Frank Sinatra inviting you to fly to the Moon. It is a retro entry, but doesn’t go for obvious disco tropes and thus feels like something new being tried in a decades old genre rather than a throwback piece for the sake of it.”

Jasmin – 7 – “The fuzzy feelings I’m feeling while listening to this song as just wonderful. Do Mjeseca sounds retro and I expect such a staging on Dora. The blend of their voices always attracted me as a listener. It’s simply cute and heartwarming but I fear not very competitive.”

12. Saša Lozar – “Ne plačem zbog nje”

Daniel – 3  – “Nice vocal, interesting production, an overall well-rounded, well-executed song. Everything is well for a song that is more befitting for an album filler than the Eurovision stage.”

James – 6 – “Other than Lozar’s vocals, there’s not much to recommend in this sad sack break-up ballad. It’s as if Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” had been drained of hope and self-awareness, his dry wit replaced with howling for a woman who long dumped him because of his alcoholism.”

Jasmin – 6.5 – “Saša is entering the competition with a simple piano ballad. At first I didn’t feel the emotion but it hit me later after a few more times. As an experienced performer, he won’t have any issues with delivering this song properly. Simple, cute but not very unique unfortunately.”

Tyler – 4 – “Ne plačem zbog nje” is an example of a perfectly pleasant song that’s inoffensive to listen to, but I’m bored as sin listening to it. It’s nice, sure, but it’s a typical downtempo ballad that doesn’t go anywhere during it to be endearing unless you like the sounds already present in the song. That’s fine! But for me, I need more from it. The vocals are fine, the lyrics are okay, the music is lovely, but I just don’t care about this entry, sorry!”
