This is now out on streaming platforms and I'd say it's more instantly catchy than "Grow" but overall not as good as that was a beautiful entry that grew on me hugely to be one of my favourites from 2020.

Liking this way more than Grow personally, which never clicked hugely with me.

Sounds like itís from a musical, and has some lovely chords in the second minute of the song. Iím not convinced it will be a major hit for Netherlands but I doubt anything else in the final will sound anything like this.

I expected nothing from this (as 'Grow' was a writeoff) and got an uplifting journey for my troubles, very nice. Good use of a host entry.

What a departure for The Netherlands, stunning entry!

The live version I saw first was a little rough around the edges but hearing the studio version of this and it's much better. I can see the juries really getting behind this!

I like this more than Grow too, really striking and unique!

I think this is being super underrated by the betting odds and Eurofans. I'll be amazed if this isn't a dark horse, I think the juries will like it and I wouldn't rule out the public connecting with it too, a low top ten/high teens finish really wouldn't surprise me.

I feel like it could building to a soaring crescendo but it just... limps? One of the more difficult ones to gauge how well it will do but it could be much better, structurally?

All those jokes about the lyrics.. I can't unhear it now!

I do think it' a nice song, but Grow was better, in my opinion.
