Iceland's Eurovision contribution this year is not considered to be likely to succeed according to a Carl Greenwood at the Daily Mirror. He gives the song two stars and said that the song is 'completely annoying'. In his article he wrote that the song has a good message, but still the whole song should be 'condemned'.

"It's like a song from CBBC circa 1996 - only with a very modern message - unfortunately like most messages it's lost by how completely annoying the actual song is.
No Prejudice's message of, well, no prejudice, should be applauded but the rest of it - all two minutes, 51 seconds of it - should be condemned. It's like being in the brain of someone who needs Ritalin by the metric tonne. While they're on LCD. In the 60s. At a park sit in, surrounded by flower power and all that carry on."
At the end of the article Carl writes:
"Its single, solitary saving grace is that it will annoy Russian President Putin. I have visions of him smashing up his living room during the Eurovision final because someone in Europe is daring to not kowtow to his views, and that's just delicious."
