Not Overpowered

I'm a little disappointed with Overpowered, to be honest. The title track is lovely, but little of the rest of it shows the originally I was hoping for from Ms. Murphy. There's nothing like the mad inventiveness of a Ramalama (Bang Bang) here.

In fact, a lot of it sounds rather dated, rather 80s. And not in a good way. (Is there a good way of sounding rather 80s?) I might have been listening to the Eurythmics on an off-night half the time.

The Black and White Album, OTOH, is great. It is more of the same on the whole, as I thought it would be, but my goodness aren't The Hives magnificent in full flight?
