Chingiz smoulders in the promo video, while the production is typically Symphonix International – landing just the wrong side of room temperature.
Azerbaijan is a country that tends to know how to use the stage and has (in my opinion) appeared to over-achieve, especially with jury votes. For these reasons alone, I see ‘Truth’ making the final.
For me, the song seems a bit unsure of what it wants to be. There’s a vaguely middle-eastern wail here and there. It’s blessed with with a solid stomper of a chorus.
However, Chingiz for all his bearded loveliness sounds lost in layers of production.
