Original Text

Alexander Rybak is back crossing all borders.

Rafał Grząślewicz

Rating: 4,5 of 5.

Alexander Rybak is a singer with Belarusian roots who lives in Norway. Just over a year ago nobody heard of his existence but today he is famous. The first Rybak’s album hit the bull’s-eye, and what about the second one?

Europe has heard about Alexander in May 2009 when he had won Eurovision Song Contest Moscow 2009 in grand style. No one has yet got such number of achievements at Eurovision. Rybak gained 387 points. Almost all radio stations played the victorious “Fairytale”, and his debut album sold like hot cakes. The huge success of the first album (in Poland, was certified gold) resulted in release of the next album which Polish premiere took place on 27 August 2010. CD entitled “No Boundaries” was earlier released of course in Norway. Like “Fairytales”, “No Boundaries” was issued by EMI Music.

A review of “No Boundaries” from Slovakia

Alexander Rybak – No Boundaries

Found and translated by Danka Čolláková.

Probably the sweetest Norwegian on the globe is back. We met him in May 2009 when he won Eurosong and in the history of the competition he enrolled with a record number of points. At that time, however, he had consecutive appearances in theatrical performances in Fiddler on the Roof, Operahouse in Oslo, and the Norwegian received the highest theater award. Such a big prize, at such a young age? No wonder. Alex grew up in a family of musicians – his mother played the violin, and the father is a pianist (sic)* and after the family moved from Belarus to Norway, young Alex Rybak started the music fully.

Carefree Rybak. Article from Postimees, July 27th, 2010

by Esme Kassar

Found by our Estonian friends, English translation by Anglesina Est, Russian translation by Natalia Tallinnka

Original article

The second album of Eurovision singer begins with violin music – for a moment one get’s a feeling of beeing on some ball in the other century, the song is called “First kiss”. The young musician continues that kind of a journy with the listener throughout the album, doing some “Green Day”-like punk rock in the song “Why not me” and then the pure folk music in the “Barndance”. And then, of course, offering something to compete with his victorious ESC winning song – a captivating and dancing “Oah”. As the talented fiddler himself has in one Youtube interview smilingly said – let the critics cope with categorizing the album on their own. Exactly that means the limitless title “No boundaries”. Different styles and themes will be bound together by the violin and Rybak’s own sparkling energy and expressive performance form it to one whole. An extra big attention on this second album receive also the thousands and thousands of fans, my whom is inspired the song “5000 letters”, which seems to be the answer to those, whom Rybak hasn’t managed to write yet. And love is of course a main theme in many songs.

I’m in love – Lyrics and video

Video of performing this song live at the festival Seto Jaanituli in Estonia 08.07.2017

You’ll find the lyrics in English, Russian and Hungarian in subtitles:

 English lyrics:

Music and lyrics by Umberto Carli

No matter what they say – now I’m in love
I do it my way – cause I’m in love
And I can keep that song out of my mind
Playing that silly tune – all the time
La da da da da
I’m in love

Rybak Without Boundaries

– If I had liked one box, I would have shut myself inside it!  –  Says Alexander Rybak, who instead enters a legion of  boxes on his new album which, consequently,  has been named “No Boundaries”.

– I have so much in my heart, so much I want to say! –
But at the same time, he is fully aware, that the new disc, is what he describes as:  “Too versatile for a good roll of the dice.” – It is not allowed to experiment with genres, – says Alexander, who also believes there has been too much of him in Norway in the recent months – and that is why the new single ” Oah “was slaughtered in reviews.
– In Russia I haven´t been a lot recently, and there,  it was very well received. It is a signal about where I am as an artist.  Now,  the decline is official – because it is no longer ” in”,  to lift me up, –  he says without blinking.
