Alexandra Burke – Overcome


Posted October 28, 2009 in Music Reviews

BIMM may-june 22 – Desktop

Topped and tailed by the grab-you-by-the-balls brilliant Bad Boys and the perfectly-judged Hallelujah, Overcome is a fairly solid album. The guest turns from Flo Rida and Ne-Yo work quite well, but it would be nice to hear more uptempo numbers like Broken Heels or Dumb. When the album veers into weepy ballad territory it becomes a tad predictable. On The Silence Alexandra sounds completely anonymous. Bury Me (6 Feet Under) is much better, a sweet Motown pastiche that fully deserves to be a hit. With a little help from the skip button on your mp3 player it’s an entertaining debut.
