Opening is the near ten minute "Monument", a moody floaty shape-shifting epic with intricate percussion patterns and lovely horn solos. Truly monumental. The largely instrumental "Sayit" sets dizzying synths to stomping beats and sprinklings of Robyn's and robotic vocals.
The catchy title track is a bouncy Pop song with razor-sharp synths and Robyn singing "Don't care what they say, it hurts so good, I don't wanna stop, I know I should, but let's do it again", "Every Little Thing" is an amospheric synth ballad, and closing is "Inside The Idle Hour Club", a haunting melancholic instrumental piece that could have fallen off Röyksopp's "Senior" album.
The rest of the tracks go a complete different direction, and they nail them. Definitely more Royksopp than Robyn, but this is a good thing. They bring out the best in her vocals, and she adds a dark emotional level to the mix. Just like with their first collaboration, they compliment each other here as well.
The running time for the ep is equivalent to a full on album, and hopefully their next venture is just that.
So dancy, and upbeat. Just super swell.
The opening song, "Monument" is a great ethereal chill-out song that is great for relaxing, and evening helping you to sleep. It's melodic lyrics and out of this world beats leave you an autonomous sensory meridian response sense of relaxation.
The follow up, "Sayit" felt overly processed and bland. I, personally, did not like this song the most. It's harsh bitcrushing vocals were not an experience my ears wished to hear.
The title track, "Do It Again" is a fantastic pop-oriented hit that carries the EP back to its high rating. The beats are catchy, the lyrics are there and the energy is all flowing the in correct direction.
The fourth track, "Every Little Thing" reminds me more of of what Royksopp has become over the years. The beats are reminiscent of Royksopp's The Understanding and Junior albums. Wonderful 'end' to the EP.
The final track, "Inside the Idle Hour Club" is a vocalless song similar to "Alpha Male" and other beat driven tracks. It's not especially vibrant or anything but it is an okay close for the EP. Definitely not the strong song on it though.
Overall, the EP is well produced and is definitely worth a buy.
the double gatefold is fairly high quality and the white record is sexy. the image is beautiful too. the record comes in a pvc sleeve. i ordered two copies of this and both of my sleeves were all f'd up and wrinkled/creased. i figured it's a problem with the record because they both came this way, but it could be megahitrecords who actually shipped it to me who messed it up. i don't know, i just know when i pay $30 for 5 gd tracks i expect at least the packaging to be in good condition.

I used to be a fan of Royksopp. Now they are just phoning it in. I am really disappointed with the simplistic, repetitive lyrics. Zero depth. Read morePublished 1 month ago by LL
I also have the CD and it's sounds awesome! The LP on the other hand has to be one of the worst engineered records I've ever purchased. Read morePublished 3 months ago by John
great album, but it left me wanting more. Monument and Do it Again are the standout tracks for me on this one, with the rest being good but not great. Read morePublished 3 months ago by C. M. A.
Not really a big fan or Royksopp OR electronic music, BUT I AM a huge fan of Robyn and have to admit the tiny Swede plays well with the two Norwegians. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Soulsurvivor
I have purchased everything that Robyn has put out since her first cd in 1997 and I have to admit this is the only one I find to be disappointing and it is very disappointing. Read morePublished 7 months ago by LOUIS LAWNICHAK
