Biography

Statistics never lie. But facts and figures only ever tell part of the story and, when that story concerns Olly Murs, they leave out the most important part of the equation. Three multiplatinum albums, four No 1 singles, sell-out arena tours, total record sales exceeding 10m. That’s impressive. No, it’s HUGE. And plenty of artists would be happy with those stats, would hang their ... Read more in Amazon's Olly Murs Store

Product Description

CD 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 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'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 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!

Wasn't going to purchase yet another CD by an X Factor contestant, but it was a good price so bought it anyway. Glad I did, love all the songs on here and am quite impressed with the whole playlist. He may not be the best singer in the country, but it's fairly easy listening and pleasurable. Nice one Olly.

I bought the CD because I listened to some of the track samples and thought they were good. My favourite tracks are 'Please don't let me go' and Thinking of me' because they are the fastest and happiest tracks on there whereas the others are a bit slow. Still a great CD though!
