Robyn Body Talking from San Francisco

Biography

She is Robyn. The most killingest pop star on the planet. A pint-sized atom bomb dosed to the tits on electric and dispensing wisdom in three-minute modernist pop bulletins on the post-adolescent condition.

The dust has barely had time to settle since the arrival of Body Talk 1, the first instalment of Robyn's ambitious three-part album release plan for this year. Lead single Dancing ... Read more in Amazon's Robyn Store

2010 release from the Swedish singer/songwriter, the first of three albums scheduled for release in 2010. Body Talk Part One is the follow-up to her internationally successful self-titled album. Consisting of eight tracks, this release is an immaculately produced set of songs filled with memorable hooks that will touch the listener's emotions while encouraging them to move their bodies!

5.0 out of 5 stars Robyn's Global Takeover Pt. 1 June 15, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
I totally remember back in the late 90's when Robyn released her debut album of pop-fluff-goodness and I was a young pre-teen and totally engulfed by her. Then, I forgot about her. Back in 2008 Robyn dropped a bomb on me. Her self-titled revamp came as quite a shock for me, and I was immediately smitten by her once again, the difference being that three years later I am still thinking about her almost daily.

Robyn has decided to drop THREE bombs on us this year. Her album `Body Talk' has been spliced three ways and will be scattered over the musical year. Her first installment has been released today and I'm already neck deep in my third go-through and I'm continually amazed at how much I adore what she's done here. If ever there was a poster child for the dance craze-rave world it is (and may always be) Robyn. Lady Gaga may be more `accessible' and M.I.A. may be more controversial (possibly only because of popularity) but there is no denying, at least in my mind, that Robyn is the DANCEHALL QUEEN!

Hopefully this three-part album will cement her global takeover!

Sinking my teeth in what she's provided here, I'll go ahead and just spout off a few of my feelings on the album as a whole. With only eight tracks (not including the remixed bonus track of `Dancing On My Own') she really had to hit every nail on the head in order to validate such a low track count. She does just that. Sure, there are two tracks here that hit a little below for me (Don't Tell Me What To Do' and `Cry When You Get Older') but they are still very good tracks. The opening track lets us know that Robyn is set on perfecting the techno-industrial-pop-hiphop-dancehall genre bending techniques she littered all over her 2008 masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've Got Some News For You July 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD
She started out a teen pop star. She created tunes that everyone would dance to at their Middle School Dance. But, just like anyone, she had to grow up. But instead of doing it like today's pop stars, she did it gracefully. Transitioning from her debut album's sweet, pre-teen songs to deep and meaningful songs (in her second album "My Truth" Robyn sang about an abortion she had in her earlier teens). She gracefully transformed from sweet, poppy Robyn to Robyn, a woman whose songs can make you laugh and shed a tear all in 35 minutes. A woman who mixes sweet vocals with ridged, techno beats. Instead of screaming and dressing up like a slutty Big Bird (Miley Cyrus, no offense to fans of Miley) she started to show how wonderful she can really be (not that Robyn wasn't wonderful to begin with). Her comeback album "Robyn (2005-2008)" mixed cheerful, upbeat music with reluctant, amazing ballads. And now the dance hall queen is back to show us why she sits in that throne.

The albums opener "Don't F***ing Tell Me What To Do" is Robyn simply complaining about lives everyday, annoying, true problems. If it were anyone else I would say "shut up, stop complaining" but Robyn tells us about these troubles in such a simplistic and truthful way that it almost sounds like she's speaking for the rest of us, not just herself. Then comes "Fembot." Robyn talks about how women are treated like robots, which in many cases is true. She raps about how she is "fresh out the box," she's "the latest model" with "automatic booty applications." It's a fun, catchy, feministic proclamation that she does have feelings, she's not made out of metal. Next on Robyn's Body Talking Lineup is "Dancing On My Own." In this song Robyn describes a situation many of have been in. Watching the person we want with someone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robyn rocks! July 28, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
Robyn sure knows how to party, as she does on this album. I have been listening to this album nonstop since it came out this summer. My favorite songs are so hard to say because they are all so good, but I especially love Fembot, Dancing on My Own, and Cry When You Get Older, as well as None of Dem. I think Robyn's next album, Body Talk Pt. 2, will be amazing as well. I have heard the accompanied version of Hang With Me that will appear on Pt. 2 and it sounds even better than the acoustic version on this album. Can't wait!
By the way, I just saw Robyn in concert and she was amazing! She sounds really great live and is so adorable and spunky dancing like a spazz all over the stage. See her if you get the chance! She won't be touring in the U.S. for much longer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerhouse June 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD
**** 1/2

Robyn is the most exciting artist in the current pantheon of pop music ... it's too bad that most American's haven't heard of her, or if they have, only remember her from the couple of hits she had here as a teenager in the 90's. The sweet little girl who sang "Show Me Love" has grown into a pop powerhouse, who can deftly meld various genres into her own glitchy, catchy, edgy concoctions.

At a scant 8 tracks, "Body Talk part 1" still covers a lot of ground. "Don't F*ing Tell Me What To Do" is an unlikely choice for an opener, since it's a hard electronica track that doesn't feature any kind of a melody, really ... and yet it works as an introduction to an album by an enigmatic pop artist who plays by her own rules. "Fembot" comes closer to a conventional pop song, with its twitchy beats and cutesy vocals, but the album really hits its stride with "Dancing On My Own", which is the perfect 21st century pop song. With its throbbing industrial sounding beat and passionate vocals, Robyn takes on a familiar pop theme - the pain of seeing your ex with someone else - and reinvents it.

The album spends the rest of its five tracks packing in a lot of punch, with Robyn taking elements of techno, hip-hop, traditional pop standards, and reggae, and mashing into her own mini opus, which is supposedly only the first of three short albums she plans on releasing this year. With her penchant for borrowing from lots of genres and forgoing typical album formats, Robyn reminds me less of current female pop stars and more of pop oddity Prince in his heyday.

Found it to have a couple of good songs, but not as much fun as some of her earlier releases. Part 1 & 2 split is silly - should have just been released on one disc.

She should have just combined all these 'Parts' and made one killer record with all the strong songs. There is really no flow to these records. Read more
