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

Editorial Reviews

2010 release from the princess of Swedish pop. Body Talk Pt. 2 is the direct result of Robyn's abundance of great songs bursting to get out. The second of three albums to drop within a year, Body Talk Pt. 2 features high brow collaborations including Snoop Dogg, Diplo, Royskopp and Klas Ahlund. Eight tracks.

On Body Talk part 2, Robyn continues her three-part pop-electronic-hip-hop opus that she began with the stunning Body Talk part 1. Part 2 is a much more streamlined, consistent effort than part 1, which was sonically all over the map. The first seven tracks are all up-tempo tunes that could serve as a terrific soundtrack to a party. And yet even though the BPM are more consistent, there is still plenty of diversity in the tracks.

Robyn's strength is her ability to morph seamlessly through different genres. She can just as affectively pull off a sweet Eurodance tune ("Hang With Me"), an electronic dancefloor anthem ("We Dance To The Beat"), or duet convincingly with an America hip-hop star (U Should Know Better). On my favorite track, "Criminal Intent", Robyn sounds a bit like a PG-13 version of smutty electroclash icon Peaches, rapping seductively about her love of getting freaky on the dance floor.

In summary, Body Talk part 2 does nothing to change my opinion that Robyn is pound-for-pound the best current female pop musician out there.

Robin Miriam Carlsson (aka Robyn) is still dancing on her own. Yet, this time she's doing it in front of a packed U.S. audience at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, California.

In time with the beats of "Dancing on My Own" (the lead single from Body Talk Pt 1), her arms swing wildly outward, defying the constrictions of her seemingly tight outfit. Robyn looks pumped as she crouches and darts under a railing before reeling back while the synths from the DJ booth, manned by Canadian house producer deadmau5, power up.

35 seconds. This is how long Robyn's televised performance lasts before MTV cuts to a commercial.

Surprising? Hardly. Despite putting out some of the best pop music this year, Robyn is still something of curio in the United States outside of the many music blogs, newspapers, and magazines that lavish her with praise.

Personally, I don't think Robyn minds. She's energetic and determined, seemingly less concerned with popularity than she is with experimenting with current pop music mores.

Body Talk, Pt. 2 may be lacking in variation and experimentation than its predecessor, but with that comes a stronger adherence to consistency. Compared to Pt. 1, the songs on Pt. 2 are eclectic, louder, and rapturous.

On "Hang With Me," the first single from Pt. 2, Robyn sings about the gulf between friendship and love, advising her object of affection that they can confide in her, but not to fall "recklessly, headlessly in love with [her].

Why Robyn is not as popular as the over hyped Lady Gaga is just beyond my personal comprehension. Sure, she is Swedish and is ridiculously popular in her own region of the world, but here in the states she is only marginally appreciated. Hopefully, as my review title suggests, this three part album will change all of that. With the whole Dancehall craze lighting up around every corner, and artists like Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga, Santogold and M.I.A. benefiting from it, hopefully Robyn will reap the rich rewards she deserves.

Collectively, she stomps all over the aforementioned.

The first installment, `Body Talk Pt. 1', was pretty outstanding. After listening to this 2nd installment nearly non-stop since its release I can honestly say that it not quite as good, but it is only secondary by a small margin. The album is tightly woven and perfectly constructed to deliver the goods with nearly every song. Personally, `In My Eyes' is a tad generic, `We Dance to The Beat' lacks a little heart and `U Should Know Better' is a little uninspired, considering the collaboration with Snoop Dogg (the song is fun, but it just doesn't reach the heights it should have).

That said; the balance of the album is ridiculously amazing.

The `one-two-THREE' punch that comes from `Include Me Out', `Hang With Me' and `Love Kills' is just almost too much to handle in it's greatness. They all rely on that tinge of commercial pop-quality that Robyn understands how to layer effectively. Her delivery is smooth and enticing and her songs are incredibly catchy. I got these beautiful glimpses of her 90's work all over these songs (especially `Include Me Out') which added a nice splash of nostalgia to the offering.

Swedish singer Robyn promised to unleash 3 EPs upon us this year, and so far we are at part 2 of her Body Talk trilogy.

Comprising 8 tracks like its predecessor, the shimmery electro "In my eyes" kicks things off, followed by the slower "Include me out" with jittery synths. "Hang with me" appeared as an acoustic ballad on "Body talk part 1". It appears here fleshed out with a stomping beat and swirling synths.

"Love kills" isn't the Giorgio Moroder/Freddy Mercury song but it might as well have come from Moroder's stable of hits. It is a dark and hypnotic synth Dance number which is the albums highlight.

"We dance to the beat" is an austere stomper with repetitive robotic vocals, similar to "Don't f*****g tell me what to do" from part 1. "Criminal intent" has booming bass, while the bouncy Glam Pop "U should know better" features Snoop Dogg and a generous dose of the "F" word. "California gurls" anyone? Fortunately it's better than that. Closing is the lone ballad, the violin-filled "Indestructible".

Two down, one to go...
