4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than My Expectations, 1 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Overcome (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
