Our team decided to create a list of all the albums from ESC artists that every fan must have!
There are some criteria that we had to consider such as the innovation of an album for its time, its creative aspect, its success, its importance in the history of music and also, not to repeat albums by the same artist. The task was hard and so there is a lot of responsibility. It is not easy to order albums with the tastes of more than 10 people, so we decided to leave the best 25 (in our opinion) in the hands of our readers. Voting will take place from now and during one week!
This is the list:
The list from 150 to 26 can be found here:

With the year coming to an end, so are the album releases. Some have been forgotten by us throughout the year, others have just seen the light of day. This is the last part we dedicate to this year's album releases.
Already known to us is the excellent album of Zdob si Zdub, Bestiarium. Folk, Rock and Ska make this album a perfect fusion that transports us to world music. The latest albums by Ani Lorak and Polina Gagarina, which are already a hit in Ukraine and Russia, confirm the power of these women who almost won Eurovision. Also from Ukraine arrives Octopus from Melovin. Another banal pop album which is expected of this performer.
From Germany comes the album of Michael Schulte and also the already veteran Nicole, who assumes that the 50 years are the new 25. But with 50 would win Eurovision again? From Switzerland comes the expected new album from Michael Von Der Heide, in German and French as expected. The revelation of last year's OT of Spain, Alfred Garcia, who from Catalonia gives us one of the best albums from the Iberian country.
The collections are not far behind this holiday season. Some to celebrate their careers like Doris Dragovic, in a collection of several albums, or Dulce Pontes that brings us another Best Of. The same happens with the Spanish classics of Raphael or Paloma San Basilio. The younger ones also gather their old albums and after public recognition they take advantage to make them better known. That's what Conan Osiris does to reprint his 3 albums in a special box.
Just out, Laura's new album from Estonia, which after her Best Of and Verona's failure releases "9 elu". Vaiko Eplik and Jakob Sveistrup were in the drawer in the busy May but could not be forgotten. Now here and highly recommended. The first alternative and the second in a more soulful environment. Finally, Sara Aalto smells like Christmas in her international "Fairytale" EP.
And finally, a Xmas EP from Miro gathering old festive hits from his carreer along with new recordings.

By midweek this was expected to happen but now it's official, the first three places on ALBUM Chart UK are Eurovision artists, this week.
First place is Nicky Byrne and his Irish band Westlife who are returning with Spectrum, their new album. The group’s first studio album in nine years becomes their eighth record to top the UK albums chart, shifting 63,000 chart sales this week across physical, download and streaming formats.
Second place is also a direct entry and belongs to Celine Dion's return to the Tops with her new Courage. Coming down but still in the Top 3 is Michael Ball and his friend Alfie Boe who Together Again promise to stick with this Chart for a long time.

Josep Sergi Capdevila (Sabadell, Catalunya,1964) defines himself as a enjoyment of life, someone who, at 55 years of age, continues to have “that illusion and desire to face new challenges” (La Vanguardia). The most immediate was the launch this Friday of the new album ... and so much, a work in which he compiles some of his successes of always evolving and modernizing his sound and in which he also includes three unpublished songs, such as Donna. The singer from Bailar Pegados (Eurovision 1991) never stopped and even before Eurovision he was very well known in south America. ‘30… AND SO MUCH ’ (translation) is the album that celebrates the 30-year career of one of the most iconic voices in the country, that of Sergio Dalma. How could it be otherwise, the launch precedes the start of his new tour. The singer now announces the first dates and cities of his tour of Spain. Latin America will comes next!
