Different place next time.,
This review is from: Right Place Right Time (Audio CD)
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 next time and keep on top of his game? I can't help but wonder if it's the greedy people behind him forcing the high output while his star still shines...
So, it's good news then, for now. If you loved Olly Murs and In Case You Didn't Know, you'll have no problems with this album. The lead single, Troublemaker, is #1 as I write and no doubt the album will do the same later tonight. But, maybe something a bit different next time?
I should say that the Deluxe Edition features full lyrics and nice artwork, bit is packaged in one of those cheap cardboard sleeves that you struggle to get the CDs and booklet out without tearing. Be careful as it's not very hardy!
