I loved Moloko.
I found out by accident that they split. It made me sad. But then I found out that Roisin Murphy, the singer from Moloko, had a solo project in the pipeline.
And it is.
It's challenging. As much as her voice challenges, the musical arrangements have risen to meet her level.
Glitchy, glossy, intricate. It's a slow burn that you have to let spin a few times before warming up to it.
Shouldn't more albums work like that? Isn't everyone tired of the one-hit wonder yet?
Unconventional, to say the least (save for the single 'If We're In Love,' the tastiest bit of neo-house I've heard in ages).
Give it a shot. She deserves your attention.

Really evidences the eclectic influences that make Roisin Murphy so listenable. A diverse selection of songs shows her then-emerging strength as a solo artist. This CD proves Murphy has something to say. She melds art and pop so skillfully. A nice album without gimmicky embellishment, perhaps it could have benefited from a titch more American-style power-pop production. Would have liked to see this CD offered as one part of a duo: one unmixed CD, the other remixed to make it sound a bit more commercial or nightclub dance-floor-friendly.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of My Favorite CDs OF ALL TIME! Sept. 7 2007
By J. Jones - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
There is really no comparison to this CD... except maybe the one Roisin is about to release. Roisin mixes vocals and electronic muzak beautifully, masterfully, and with a purpose seldom matched lately. This CD is VERY cutting edge, very good for casual listening, dancing, driving, background music, or really virtually anything except (maybe) a funeral... yet "Night of the Dancing Flame" might just be dark enough.

Roisin takes you on a journey from darkly ecstatic klaviers and bass, to down low jazz lounge tunes, to chilled out love songs, to pure electronic dance (which is what I love most about her new CD, Overpowered), to hip tunes, to manically entrancing tribal beats, and back again. I cannot stop singing the praises of Roisin's artwork.

_If you have any taste in modern music, you'll love Roisin Murphy._

She is quite possibly my favorite musical artist to date.

Without a doubt 5--no, 10--stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius. July 5 2007
By Jordan Lester - Published on

Roisin Murphy is the most talented artist of the 21st century. Much more than Bjork, Tori Amos, bla bla.. Roisin is IT. Too bad she hasn't made it as big as she should have. But she has a new album and single due out soon, SO CHECK IT OUT! Overpowered, released July 9.

5.0 out of 5 stars So you think you can sing? Sept. 11 2006
By Christopher Wanko - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I was watching "So You Think You Can Dance" with my wife and we caught a cool song called "Ramalama (Bang Bang)". My ears are going so we had captioning on, which tells you the artist and song. I quickly jotted down the name and went looking online for the song and album.

Wow, what a great find this turned out to be. I've done two straight-through listens in addition to a few shuffle-plays with other songs, and I've finally figured out all the tastes I'm hearing.

It's Bjork and Aphex Twin with classic AM radio female vocals a la Carly Simon, with some inevitable Kate Bush/ Tori Amos splashed in. Ultimately, you have and have not heard anything like this album. The ingredients, yes, but the dish? All its own, and it works very well. Enjoyable and quirky, and I think because I'm going through a jazz phase now, it resonates deeper within me than if I were to bne traveling through, say, my death metal or Hendrix phases.

Worth picking up, for sure, but maybe a note of caution for more conservative listeners, it's something to give a dedicated ear to appreciate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Less tomfoolery than Moloko, but still experimental March 10 2007
By Steven Guy - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I've been listening to this album from time to time since its release and I still enjoy it. Roisin Murphy, along with Alison Goldfrapp, would have to be one of the most creative and original female artists in the U.K. at the moment.

This album uses instruments in a most beguiling and colourful way. Roisin Murphy seems to think that there is nothing bass and electric guitars can do that a woodwind and brass ensemble can't do! Why use a bass guitar when a baritone saxophone can do the job just as well? Of course, for added colour and unusual sounds, one just can't beat keyboard synthesizers, sequencers and drum computers and these modern instruments play their part on Ms Murphy's album, too.

The styles of music on this album could be described in various terms; "Trip-Hop", "Lounge", "Experimental Pop", etc. However, I think it would be fair to say that Roisin Murphy has largely "done her own thing" here and approached each song in an individualistic way.

I think that Roisin Murphy is capable of great things and I think that she can and should easily better this album, soon. However, "Ruby Blue" is a fascinating album jam-packed with songs which suggest all sorts of future musical directions.
