Product Description

Product Description

This is debut Olly Murs' self-titled album. The release follows the outstanding success of his debut single "Please Don’t Let Me Go" which reached number one in September 2010, and was a bonafide sales and airplay smash. Olly’s "Thinking Of Me" was co-written by Olly, with Steve Robson and Wayne Hector. Olly co-wrote most of the album with a host of collaborators, from Chris Difford (Squeeze) to Eg White and Trevor Horn.

BBC Review

Anyone who enjoys a chipper ditty, a milkman-friendly whistle-along of a song, will find a lot to like in this album. Olly is a very confident fellow, with a winning smile and a spring in his step, and this is spread thickly across his debut like marzipan on a wedding cake.

There’s been a certain amount of discussion about his vocal similarities with one Will Young, but Olly is a much more carefree presence on record than his fellow – and far more serious – graduate of the school of reality TV pop stars. Plus he’s got a hat, which he wears all the time. Does Will Young wear a hat all the time? He does not.

And the overriding impression is of a man who has loved and lost but, y’know, it’s all good, and he’s ready to love again whenever you are. Yes there are stalker overtones to second single Thinking of Me, in which Olly basically takes the credit for his ex-girlfriend’s taste in... well, everything, and he happily criticises her new boyfriend too.  And yes, he does like to overstate the case – witness the bombastic A Million More Years – but nothing is going to wipe that cocky grin from his face for long.

It’s not really his fault either. Ska and reggae are among the most joyous musical forms known to humankind. Add a bit of soulful pop/rock here or music hall strut there (I Blame Hollywood) and you’ve got an album that, for the first half at least, is very sure of itself indeed.

Even the relatively downbeat second half betrays little sense of doubt. It takes a certain amount of self-regard to insist that the person you have your eye on either admits that they love you or lets you get on with your life, and that’s pretty much what Ask Me to Stay demands.

Heart on My Sleeve is close to being vulnerable, but it’s followed very quickly by Hold On, a Bugsy Malone-sampling heel-clicker about being strong in the face of adversity. After that, it’s basically back to the grinning and the high kicks.

I've already stated in a previous review that I saw none of the 2009 season of 'The X Factor', so the only knowledge I have of runner-up finalist Mr Murs is through his 2 singles and his frequent appearances in certain tabloid newspapers.

His debut single, 'Please Don't Let Me Go', rightly reached #1 this past summer. It's a remarkably catchy, slightly reggae-fied offering that's typical of this album. Olly co-wrote the majority of the songs with prolific songwriters like Chris Difford, Steve Robson and Wayne Hector. John Shanks, Lol Creme and James Morrison also contribute, making this a better album than most 'X Factor' winners' debut sets!

I do think the contestants taking their time before releasing their first albums is really paying off now. This and the recent Joe McElderry debut are both really strong pop CDs that seem packed with potential hits. Murs' second single 'Thinking Of Me' has entered the charts at #4 this week, though I have to say, it IS more of a #4 record than a #1...

After the singles, it's pretty much all good. Mauldlin balladry is kept to a strict minimum and Murs is in good voice throughout. He seems to have his own style and tracks like 'Change Is Gonna Come', 'Busy', 'Love Shine Down' and 'I Blame Hollywood' will take up permanent residence in your head.

I wouldn't like to predict Olly's long-term career prospects. This is no reflection on him, just that the music industry seems to be in a really unstable place at the moment, and I do think shows like 'X Factor' struggle to create stars with longevity. They seem to last only as long as the current series and once that's over, people seem to forget them and transfer their affections to the contestants of the next series!

I absolutely love this album!!! I didn't actually watch the X Factor Olly was on, but I heard 'Please Don't Let Me Go' and 'Thinking of Me' on the radio/music channels and loved them so much I had to buy the album!! If you loved those tracks you will adore the album - it's all got a very similar feel about it - a very happy-go-lucky, loving life, feel-good kind of vibe :) The minuite this CD starts you will feel 10 times happier and positive about life - it's a great start to the day!!

My favourite tracks are Thinking of Me and I Blame Hollywood (which has a very Michael Buble feel about it) but they are all awesome!!

If you still need convincing check some of the songs out on youtube - I promise you will not be dissappointed!!!

I hope you get as much pleasure out of listening to this album as I do :)

I purchased Olly for my stepdaughter but it's a really good album and I think i've listened to it more than her. Definately worth a listen!

I bought this on the strength of the two singles Thinking of Me and Please Don't Let Me Go and was pleasantly surprised. I like all of the songs, only 1 or 2 I would say are mediocre. In a way it is an old fashioned album in that they haven't taken this young guy and given him all this hip hop urban modern stuff. How refreshing is that! Nor is it all cheesy over the top ballads like Westlife. The slower ones are actually good. The album is very melodic and catchy and I just love Olly's voice, he puts real expression into the songs. It's not all reggae either. It's an impressive debut definitely, all the more so as he is from the X Factor camp. Plus it appeals to all age ranges I think (I'm in my forties) and not just young girls. Onwards and upwards Olly, you should get the recognition for this album.

After getting this cd for Christmas it has been on non stop in my car for over a month now. A great mix of up-tempo catchy numbers and ballads is a great debut album by Olly which has something for everyone. My 2 young children are fond of 'Please Don't Let Me Go' and 'Thinking Of Me' but they are also learning the new songs too.

A lot of people are sceptical about so called reality tv stars but without programmes like the X Factor singers like Olly wouldn't stand a chance in the cut-throat music business. Even my boyfriend who hates these type of shows asked us who I was listening to and it was funny to see his face when I said it was Olly Murs!

Definitely recommened from our house! : )

I think this is a great debut album from Olly! Not all of the songs (1 or 2 slower ones) were what I wanted/expected from him, but that could just be my taste in music!

Overall, there is a great selection of new songs here, and they definately match up to his 2 hits released so far!

If you liked his songs so far, buy this album!
