Product Description

Product Description

Following three number one singles, a number one double platinum selling album, innumerable radio spins and a UK tour for early 2011, Alexandra Burke celebrates her champion year with a brand new, deluxe version of her debut album Overcome. Originally released in 2009, the A-list produced album has to date whistled past the international million sales mark and will soon surpass that figure on home turf alone.
Created with the help of the industry's most in-demand production houses (Roc Nation and Jay-Z, RedOne, The Phantom Boyz, Ne-Yo and Stargate) the album has produced five massive hit singles. Overcome Deluxe Edition features Alexandra’s five smash singles "Hallelujah," "Bad Boys," "Broken Heels," "All Night Long," and "Start Without You." In addition, it now includes a new version of the emotional ballad "The Silence," the lead track from the album, as well as three brand new songs. "Perfect," written for Alexandra by US singer-songwriter Bruno Mars, is an epic ballad, showcasing Burke’s superlative vocals, while "What Happens On The Dancefloor" sees her team up with American pop-punk band Cobra Starship for another knockdown dance floor smash courtesy of RedOne. "Before The Rain" completes the line up. Since emerging as victor of the X Factor in 2008, Alexandra Burke has been nominated for numerous awards including the BRITS and MOBO’S and recently won the award for Ultimate Pop Star at the Cosmopolitan Woman of the Year Awards.

Product Description

Deluxe two disc (CD + PAL/Region 0 DVD) edition includes bonus tracks on the CD plus a bonus DVD containing six videos. Debut album from the 2008 X-Factor winner. With a willfully mischievous glint in her eye, 21 year old Alexandra Burke is sitting on one of the hottest Pop debuts of the decade. From the rumbling first bars of her Sci-Fi Disco stormer single Bad Boys, to the Red One-fashioned Dancehall groove of Dumb, Alexandras A-list produced Overcome is a party monster of a record, poised to knock the socks off even the most cynical Pop enthusiast. Recorded over six months, Overcome is a collection of club smashes (All Night, Dumb, Broken Heals) peppered with astonishingly soul-bearing slow jams (Silence, Perfect.) Created with the help of perhaps the industries most in demand production houses (Roc Nation and Jay-Z, The Phantom Boyz, Red One, Stargate and The Freemasons) the album is a sonic manifestation of Alexandras ballsy personality, with the lady herself describing the collection as a beast. Syco.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beyond The X Factor 19 Oct 2009
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Well, well, well! I have to admit to no small measure of surprise on
hearing Ms Burke's debut album 'Overcome'. The car-crash of a show
which spawned her has not guaranteed any great degree of longevity
(Ms Lewis a cautious exception) in the careers of its past winners
(Mr Brookstein, Mr Ward, Mr Jackson - where are they now?).

The difference with this young lady is that she has talent.
She's funny and feisty, she has charm and chutzpah and above
all this she can sing. Oh my good golly gosh can she sing?!!

That this recording has had bucket-loads of cash thrown at it
is self-evident. The investment is likely to reap rich rewards
both for Ms Burke and for those who own her. We must hope that
she is nurtured and looked-after a little too.
The industry is a cruel and fickle place for the uninitiated.

The intergalactic roster of producers and writers aside what
we have here is a solid-gold pop album. A splash of R&B, a big
spoonfull of soul, a dash of electro, a pinch of Motown.
What's remarkable is that it is shaped into a coherent whole
by the enthusiastic abandon of her vocal prowess.

It's a largely up-beat collection with a couple of stonkingly
wonderful power-ballads thrown in for good measure.

Her collaboration with RedOne has been especially fruitful.
'The Silence', 'Dumb' and 'Broken Heels' are all cracking songs.
The latter is destined to set countless dance-floors ablaze.

'Gotta Go' is a consumately soulful compositon beautifully sung.

'You Broke My Heart' confidently captures the spirit of 60's R&B.

'Bury Me (6 Feet Under)' is perhaps the only weak number in the bunch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than My Expectations 1 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
The X Factor can lead a couple of ways:
1) To worldwide success (e.g. Leona Lewis)
2) Not help you at all (e.g. Steve Brookstein)

After one listen of "Overcome", it seems that Alexandra Burke will soon be following in the steps of Leona, by going on to worldwide success.

This album has a good mixture of up-tempo and ballads. There are 4 stand-out songs for me, and two are ballads, and two are up-tempo.

"Bad Boys", the lead single, is an excellent start to the album. It gets you up and dancing straight away, and is very catchy. An instant hit.

"Broken Heels", a RedOne production, is huge. Up-tempo and very catchy, like Bad Boys, but possibly even better.

"The Silence", another RedOne production, is more like a ballad. A nice echo in the chorus, and a really good key change in the last chorus. Would be a very good single choice if Alexandra wants to release a ballad.

"Overcome", the title track from the album, has excellent lyrics and a powerful chorus. Fits in with the fact this is a debut album, and has a great placing on the album, straight after a couple of up-tempo tracks.

Really great ordering of the tracks, as the same styles are split up, and you don't have a load of ballads/up-tempo all in one go.

Strongest Song(s): Bad Boys, Broken Heels, The Silence, Overcome
Weakest Song(s): Nothing But The Girl
Rating: 8/10

4.0 out of 5 stars Great debut album! 14 Jun 2010
By Janey C
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this album because I'm a fan of Alexandra's voice and I really liked the singles taken from it. After only a few listens, I must say I am really impressed with this album. I particularily like the first half, which is very up beat with some really catchy songs. Not quite so keen on the second half, as there are more ballads which is not so much my cup of tea. I would say there are probably 6 or even 7 songs on here that are good enough to be released as singles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alexandra Burke - Overcome 20 Mar 2011
By N. Wilson VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Not being funny; but let's look at X Factors' track record of winners-releases. Steve Whathisnameepicfail isn't even worth mentioning, Shayne Ward was passable with huge "Justin Timberlake" potential but ultimately was very badly managed, Leona Lewis was completely fantastic but released a fairly average and utterly un-groundbreaking debut filled with mediocre ballads only passable because of her astonishing vocals and finally little Leon Jackson who was quite underrated and released a very safe, and ultimately, very flop-worthy album.

Now I'm not maths genius, but I think that means the average X Factor Winner's Album has been generally quite poor.
So with that in mind, let's bring 2008 X Factor Winner Alexandra Burke and her debut album "Overcome" to the spotlight.

Our initial view of the album was her debut single `Bad Boys' featuring "legendary" rapper Flo-Rida. It wasn't, and isn't, the worst single ever; it's certainly better than Cheryl Cole's appalling solo debut; but it's also no `Bleeding Love'.

But what we can tell from the first single is that Alexandra means business. She isn't going to be another warbling princess like Leona, Shayne or Leon. Her fantastic pop is laced with American attitude and danger with a heavy baseline and stomping beat: the song even has a fully choreographed dance routine! Huzzar! A real pop star is born!

And if you liked her single; you are going to LOVE her album!

What you will notice immediately is her album is laced with amazing upbeat tracks. `Goodnight, Goodmorning' (featuring "legendary" rapper/R'n'B "superstar" Ne-Yo), `Broken Heels', `Dumb', `You Broke My Heart' and `Nothing But The Girl'. The influences behind these tracks are obvious; Rihanna, Beyoncé and maybe even Britney.
