Customer Reviews


7 months later from the original release, we finally can purchase this album in Australia. I'd have to say, some songs are pretty fantastic, and others are really average, but what we have to recognise is that Alexandra Burke is a truly talented, and still has so much going for her in the near future!

Yes, it's been out since October in the UK, and it's fantastic.

Alexandra Burke does not disappoint with her debut studio album, Overcome. There are some dud tracks here, but overall, her vocals are amazing and the majority of the songs are brilliant.
The opener Bad Boys (featuring Flo Rida) sets the example. Alluded as "21st century pop", Bad Boys is a thumping disco banger, and Alexandra Burke really gets to shine, supported by rapper Flo Rida. Good Night, Good Morning (featuring Ne-Yo) is a solid track, but could be better. The Silence is epic, showcasing Alexandra's fine vocal work. The stand-out track would have to be All Night Long. (Personally, I prefer the remix with Pitbull, because it adds spark and flavour), but the solo version is also amazing. Bury Me (6 Feet Under) is definitely the worst track on the album. Dull beat, dud lyrics and dull vocals just add to the dullness of the song. Second single Broken Heels is another stand-out (I don't like the start, where she speaks), but the vibe and rhythm is just brilliant. Dumb is vocally brilliant and packed with great beats. Overcome is one of the best ballads on the album, showing Alexandra's great vocals. Gotta Go and You Broke My Heart are better than average, but nothing special. Nothing But The Girl is a solid number. They Don't Know is fairly average, and the closer Leonard Cohen's song Hallelujah is a brilliant addition to the album. Alexandra's cover is spectacular, definitely one of the stand-outs.
Overall, it's a very fine first effort, but some tracks are fizzlers and not to my liking.


Alexandra is definately very talented, and this album has some stand-out tracks, however I must say I prefer the remixes to all her singles. If you're a fan, listen to the Jason Nevins remix of 'All Night Long', the Digital Dog remix of 'Broken Heels' and the Almighty mix of 'The Silence'. Maybe it's just my personal taste, but I believe the re-worked versions give the tracks the extra oomph they need to get you dancing. Still, a very good album.


Born: 25 August 1988 in Islington, London, England

Years Active: '00s

Proving the old adage "If at first you don't succeed...," soul singer Alexandra Burke emerged victorious as the winner of the fifth season of The X-Factor, three years after being rejected by the same show. Born in Islington, London, in 1988, the daughter of ex-Soul II Soul vocalist Melissa Bell began singing from an early age. At 12 years old, she entered the BBC talent show Star for a Night but lost out in the final to a then-unknown Joss Stone. After leaving school, Burke concentrated on pursuing...
