Right Place Right Time ~ Olly Murs

Olly Murs' 3rd album continues the punchy pop formula of his first two. The quality is kept up even on the Deluxe Edition with all of it's 6 tracks being strong enough to appear on the standard album. As I said, Murs has a formula and it's a good one, but there is some growth on this CD. Opening track, the dramatic Army Of Two is a real step forward with it's military beat and falsetto chorus. There's a touch of Robbie Williams about it. Good Robbie, though. Not Take The Crown Robbie!

This is the third time in 3 years that Olly has released an album in the last week of November. They've all been worthy, but maybe he needs a little break now so he can create something different… Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Lazy Christmas, 12 Nov 2012
I know it's for charity but this is another pointless Olivia release. She has recorded a fair few of these songs before and I think it's the 3rd outing for Silent Night! Travolta was never much of a singer and time hasn't improved that. His contributions to the likes of Winter Wonderland, Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree and The Christmas Song border on embarrassing.

The one new track, the John Farrar penned I Think You Might Like It (some chance) is cringy beyond words, but at least it's new! I mean, in 2012 who needs dull retreads of I'll Be Home For Christmas (even if Barbra Streisand guests (needlessly) for about 30 seconds), Baby It's Cold Outside (awful) and Have Yourself… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Missed opportunity?, 27 Sep 2012
Dionne Warwick's Heartbreaker album came 2 years after Barry Gibb and his brothers wrote the Guilty LP for Barbra Streisand. I've always, probably unfairly, compared the two and still feel that Guilty came out on top. Heartbreaker is a good album but lacks the career-defining songs of the Streisand effort. Draggy songs like Yours and Just One More Night don't help and the closing track, the much covered Our Day Will Come always felt lazy to me.

This BBR edition was rumoured to include a handful of unreleased songs from the Warwick/Gibb sessions but none actually show up. I'm sure the normally excellent BBR have an excuse for this but it doesn't give you much of a reason to re-buy… Read more
