Edurne is the Disney Princess of her heart. She brought Madrid glamour to Vienna in “Amanecer”, a towering anthem that channeled warmth and sizzle and some major señorita realness. That a few shoddy camera angles torpedoed its hopes in a competitive crowd is an absolute injustice. In any event, we’re pleased to report that she keeps the magic going on her new album Adrenalina.

Her follow-up single “Basta” is playful and flirty, and laden with tango-disco schtick that demands a Latin sway from you. “One Shot” is an amazing rock-tribal fusion, perhaps seeing Edurne flirt with her Shakira impersonation on Tu Cara Me Suena. “Freakday” too shines for some killer Aguilera vocal runs. Rock Chick Edurne is at her best though on “La Última Superviviente”, striding breezily through the track and throwing it down.

The upbeat is let down by “Sígueme”, which sounds uncomfortably dated amongst the other fast-paced tracks. Not as much as “I Believe”, though, which has a real bad 80s feeling about it. Edurne’s vocals are never in question on either track but the production really breaks Adrenalina’s cohesion.

Those few sidesteps aside, the big Latin ballads – “Va A Ser Mejor” and “Dudar” – really stand out. They scream to be the next single. A true girl crush moment is “Un Día Más”. Dreamy, piano driven and anthemic, it nails everything a ballad should be.

Adrenalina may have a few clangers in its set list but press skip and there is a confident mix of dance, ballads and rock remaining. The album sounds little like “Amanecer” but Eurovision songs have a way of being set apart from album tracks anyway. The bottom line? Edurne can rock your world or break it apart with emotional balladry.

Score: 4/5

She should have entered “One Shot”, which is very radio-friendly & seems on trend to what the juries liked (ie Heroes). Or she should have used an epic ballad, the song she entered was heavily burdened by too much theatrics. But I do admire her as a vocalist

Sinsentido es lo que tienes TU en tu cabeza,que vas por la vida cambiando a la gente de sexo y nacionalidad.YO estoy ya en Barcelona para disfrutar del SONAR y TU seguiras amargado escribiendo en este blogg intentando llenar las horas de TU aburrida vida.Pense que estabas muerto pero ya veo que has resucitado.Suebete en mi Paca y te aseguro que veras el Teide.

I didn’t know her English was that bad, apalling really. I hardly understand what she’s singing.

Ya está la Paca, la venezolana fanática que cree que toda Europa traduce los sinsentidos que escribe.

Ella es carismatica,pero sobre todo es bondad y dulzura,Edurne ha conquistado a muchos Españoles a cada paso que dado en su carrera,sobrte todo en la TV.Me pregunto que fue de esa lagrima en la final de Viena…la lagrima era de rabia,es la primera vez que veo a Edurne actuar de esa manera.MARIO eres lo MAS.

One Shot is cute and could have done well in ESC. I still think the song she had in the contest was not good enough for a singer of her caliber.

It was not the fault of Edurne that she finished on 21st place.. She is very talented & amazing but her song did not help her that much.. *Amanecer* was a very good song but could not quarantee a top10 finish in many countries so she could be able to receive many points & finish on rather high place.. I felt sorry 4 Edurne’s disappointing result & i think that Spain was underrated.. At first i was excited about her entry but after witnessing the bookmakers having other hot favorites & Spain to not do great in the OGAE voting… Read more »
