    Although a bit more subtle than her 2012 masterpiece Seeds, Overload still ranks among Muldrow's finest efforts.

    Overload contains multitudes, and at times its lack of cohesion can be a bit unsettling. But it is also proof that Muldrow can excel at whatever style she touches on, and a great collection of songs.

    Overload is suffused with love: love for self, love for community, and especially love for Muldrow's longtime creative and romantic partner, the rapper Dudley Perkins.

    Her most varied and generous LP yet.

    The diversity of the record, it’s ability to flow from gnarly jazz to doomy funk of to peachily perfect quiet storm pop like “Conmigo”, never feels forced; and there’s a new wisdom and wonder to Muldrow’s voice that leaves things suggestive more than doctrinaire, open rather than sealed, playful rather than penetrative. Superb. [Dec 2018, p.63]

    Fans of Badu, Solange and Janelle must investigate. [Jan 2019, p.85]

    A record that twists in thrilling shapes but rarely gets tangled. [Dec 2018, p.111]
