Every era has a teen idol, and now it’s Eric Saade who is on the wallpapers. His Popular has really made him popular, particularly in the range from toddlers up to fifteen so-so. At least it seemed so from the front of the central square scene on this beautiful evening.
The reception was at least very loudly, screams came by to order every time he took the tone. Or did something else about anything, incidentally. And Saade himself thrived naturally as fish in water. This is really what the artist wants to do, which could be seen how clearly any time. That does not mean that the show was sensational in any way, but there is no denying that the commitment and the ambition is there.
For goal awareness is actually obvious, and now he wants to strike while the iron is hot. Already this fall will release third album Saade Vol. 2, so the fever is likely to continue in other words. The only question is how long the fun lasts. Young fans have known that they have a tendency to be unfaithful with their idols.
Next, and regarding only musical aspects, it can’t be denied that Saade is equipped with catchy tunes, even if we hardly talk in terms Cheiron heyday. It certainly was not hard to see that the kids were excited by the things that breakthrough hit manboy and Hearts in the Air, but production was just as on the discs, generally unnecessary monotony.
But all this does not matter to Saade himself. He faces the situation with confidence, and is convinced of his own excellence. We’ll just live up to their hype as well. Something that may prove difficult. On the other hand, it aimed at the tree tops may reach halfway. Which are likely to be necessary. To reach at least halfway, that is. For that situation is now the singer, by all means some promising qualities, but the hunger and desire to be on stage at the same time surpasses the capacity of the skills he is in possession of fairly well.
But that situation is now reigns, of course, Saade is the younger people’s idol, and having reached that position is of course an achievement only. I have, however, difficult to be impressed. In my eyes he is no more than a homespun boyband vocalist who is never around to trump their foreign colleagues. Although he was only twenty, but compare him with anyone in the Backstreet Boys or Take That in the same age, and class distinction is the (over) clear as anywhere in terms of singing, performing The move and artistry as a whole.
