CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic
Even if this album is a bid for the big time, it's done with such flair that it just underscores what a confident and unique artist Murphy really is.

The Line of Best Fit

Despite some dirty feathers in her tail (the plodding “Scarlet Ribbons”) this pop peacock is definitely on her own and loving it. This all means that I better start brushing up on my dance music.

Pitchfork

In a year of low-stakes disappointment for European pop, Overpowered is a triumph.

Overpowered is both impressive and incredibly fun, but fun in a way that Ruby Blue wasn't: you don't have to think here. Which, I mean, it's not that one is better than the other; they're just differently awesome.

Such a pleasant listen containing well crafted electropop. One of the aspects of Overpowered that could've been improved is the lyrical content that does not feel unique but it does not stop this album from being great.
