The Silence was one of my favourite tracks from Overcome. It really should have been the second single in January, instead of Broken Heels which was pretty average at best. She also gave great performances on The Paul O'Grady Show and X-Factor. I didn't mind the video, it was quite interesting and Alex looked better than she did in the All Night Long video. Definitely one of the best power ballads and it's a huge shame that it flopped.
The only mistake was pushing it back for a later release. It was planned to be the third single of Overcome but then it ended up being the final song from Overcome. I'm sure it would have done better she hadn't pushed it back for the uptempo tracks. I think they even filmed The Silence video before All Night Long.
