You can see Kalliopi having an appeal to a select sect of music lovers but that appeal is limited, very limited indeed. Music has many different effects on people. However the London-based singer’s music doesn’t seem to have any effect. It’s pedestrian and provokes a pretty static reaction from the listener.
To be positive her voice is undeniably wonderful, totally refreshing. It’s just a pity that she lacks that same verve in her musicality. “Around The World” is a song that’s just boring. It’s yawn-worthy. The guitars are screechy, the drums are just fairly tedious, the chorus and lyrics are just too simple. The song is far too predictable. We’ve heard it all before have we not?
