Overall I think Darius has an excellent legacy. Yes Marathon flopped as he had to release himself after Greco Roman decided not to give him a deal (due to insurmountable working culture differences) but his management team was excellent at portraying a good image to his 1 million fans.

During the time of the above events, Darius was still revered as a living god by his 1 million fans which is quite an achievement. That relevancy biggrin.gif

Darius Campbell is a good man who came back from probably the biggest talent show humiliation to get a UK #1.

An underrated singer who deserved more chart success.

I think he should have had better infantry and realised that a frontal attack on a Greek phalanx wasn't going to work.

Yes the Greek concert really didn't hit a good note with his audience. He could have surrounded them with glorious sound, instead the sound only hit them one way and was one dimensional and weak and he was defeated.

If only he would have got that deal with Greco Roman his concert in Greece would have been more critically acclaimed. The fact was people in Greece were already not the biggest Darius fans, so judged his set harshly at the country's annual festival. Unfortunately the working culture differences were too much. The negative critical reception to his performance in Greece stopped Darius from becoming truly great, especially because that concert was broadcast around the world.

Both Dariuses are great in their own way. This forum should equally celebrate both, as it is the Darius forum.

He for me has always been behind of the shadows from Gareth Gates and Will Young in the press. Annoying that Pop Idol performance gets mentioned in every article.

He certainly has a better voice than Gareth Gates in my opinion. Like Will Young, Darius' voice is very distinctive, no other singer I have heard sounds quite like him.

Well I wouldn't say he is my favourite music artist in the world (those reside in the world of dance and rock) but in terms of his singing he has one of the best singing voices for a male pop star I would say, especially in terms of having a nice tone.

I love the times he just stands up and sings - or plays guitar as a backing to his singing.

Our Darius carries off an army uniform with more style (Guys and Dolls and From Here To Eternity), IMO.
