Editorial Reviews

2013 debut album from the British singer/songwriter. Contrast is a genre-defying blend of innovative R&B, dramatic hip-hop soundscapes, and stadium-scaling pop anthems that manages to be both credibly cool and commercially appealing. The album features collaborations with Ne-Yo, Stargate, Midi Mafia, Frank Ocean, Kevin Rudolf, Sandy Vee, Crada, songwriter Diane Warren, The Invisible Men, and Pharrell Williams.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Contrast August 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This disc is everything that Justin Bieber's new Believe is not: it's fresh,; it's colorful, energetic, and most of all it's not boring. Perhaps the weakest songs on the disc are the single Can't Say No and the following song with Pharrell, Lift Off.

My first impression of Maynard was the similarities I found between him and Michael Jackson--and this was before I read that MJ was one of his heroes. His voice is distinctive enough though you can hear the guys that he has listened to. He's learned from some of the greatest and the best parts of those vocalists are what Conor Maynard brings to your stereo. And the music has so many influences that it may seem like his is an amalgamation of everybody else. But that's NOT a negative. After all, Reese's struck gold when they combined peanut butter with chocolate! This combination of colors keeps this disc from being one dimensional and stale. And the opposite of being unoriginal--since we all are a product of our own unique influences--this blend of shades and shapes makes his art one worth going back to time and again.

It would be hard to mention which are the best tracks since there really isn't anything bad on the disc. A casual pass--if that would happen with this collection--might present the outstanding Animal, Vegas Girl, Mary Go Round, and Take Off with the appropriate closing with Just In Case.

But the real contrast here is that, while it borrows from all the greats of this genre, it doesn't try to be a part of the pack. the radio is full of cookie-cutter fashion and no originality. Most of those are disposable and will give way to the next legion of cookie-cutter heroes waiting to take their place. Maynard, on the other hand, will not be a part of that if this disc is any indication where he's headed.

5.0 out of 5 stars No One's in Contrast with Conor Maynard January 14, 2013
Format:Audio CD
This cd is the best! If people try to compare Conor to Justin Bieber or anyone else, they are wrong. I love Justin Bieber, I even went to his concert, but he is in no comparison to Conor Maynard. Conor has a better voice and his cd is way better than Justin's.

Contast has maybe two song that I don't really listen to, but all the others I have on repeat.

I love this cd, and can't get enough.

This album has a few great cardio songs, which was the main reason I got it. There are definitely a few songs you'll skip everytime, though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Contrast - Conor Maynard
He's the US version of Justin Bieber, but I dare say a bit more talented! Its a surprisingly good album for a young songwriter.
