Editorial Reviews

EU only LP pressing. One of the most celebrated & innovative artists in the elctronic genre, Norway's Royksopp return with the highly anticipated follow-up to their classic deubt Melody AM (an album named one of the best albums of 2001 by Rolling Stone, GQ, Entertainment Weekly, Jockey Slut and more) and The Understanding, which combined lush atmospherics with enthralling pop. JUNIOR is Royksopp's most accomplished release yet, an inspired and ambitious musical confection fusing pure pop hooks with "technoperatic" dancefloor slammers. Featuring a team of top female vocalists/collaborators including Swedish superstar Robyn, Lykke Li, Karim Dreijer (The Knife) as well as fellow Norwegian Annell Drecker (who appeared on Royksopp's debut Melody A.M.).

Well No, but it does have more consistency than those previous albums !
Arish
After two albums, this Norwegian duo move into a braver, more courageous sound palette, where the listen feels like the next best thing to a voyage in space.
Atli Hafsteinsson
Karin Dreijer-Andersson lends her vocals to "This must be it" and the frenetic "Tricky tricky".

Norwegian duo Röyksopp have been responsible for some of the catchiest and trendiest pieces of Electronic Dance music since their brilliant debut "Melody AM" in 2001, especially the ubiquitous "Eple" which was used in an MTV ad. "Junior" is their third CD and it picks up where their previous two left off. This time around, they feature a wider assortment of female vocalists, Swedes Robyn and Lykke Li among them.

Opening is a swirling/beeping instrumental "Happy up here", one of four, the others being the lush "Röyksopp Forever", "Silver cruiser", and the stomping "It's what I want" (with deep stabbing retro sounding synths; think Cerrone or Giorgio Moroder).

Robyn lends her vocals to the swirling "The girl and the robot" (with lovely heavenly harmonies). The buzzing/reverb-laden "Vision one" features Anneli Drecker, whose soft vocals also appear on the upbeat but ghostly "You don't have a clue" and the sweeping and groovy "True to life".

Karin Dreijer-Andersson lends her vocals to "This must be it" and the frenetic "Tricky tricky". If she sounds familiar (especially her distinctive Swedish accent), it's because she also lent her vocals to "What Else Is There?" from Röyksopp's sophomore disc "The understanding".

Lykke Li (whose debut "Youth novels" was one of my favourites of last year) lends her elfin vocals to "Miss it so much".

Ecstatic, beautiful and mysterious all at the same time, this is another winner from Röyksopp.

Röyksopp - aka Svein Berge and Brundtland Torbjørn - first came to widespread attention with the top ten album "Melody A.M." in 2001 and its singles, in particular "Eple". The sleekly polite European chillout and the glacial trip-hoppy cool of these tracks made them a dream come true for advertising and TV programmes and soundtrack executives.
Sometimes the countess adverts made the Norwegians as unwelcomely ubiquitous as Moby.
The Norvegian electronic duo continue to impress with their third album, "Junior", an energetic and enchanting collection of synth-led songs that ease you into a relaxed state of mind.
As always, the Bergen-based outfit have written, performed, arranged, mixed and produced the album, while this time drawing on guest vocals from the best of Scandinavian talent including Swedish hit-maker Robyn, Karin Dreijer-Andersson (lead vocalist in the Knife) and indie-pop darling Lykke Li.
Their contributions are all largely interchangeable, but that's fine, as they are only here to grease the wheels of Röyksopp's sleek Euro electro machine as it motors through a variety of sonic landscapes.
Like Groove Armada and Goldfrapp, the Norwegian duo won fame in the chill-out zone but have since become more interesting.
The opening song on Röyksopp's "Junior" is perfectly-chosen. "Happy Up Here" is a melodic and uplifting track that sets the tone perfectly for the album.
Much of this third album gallops along in a manner that would never suit an air freshener advert, most notably "Tricky Tricky", which sees Karin Dreijer Andersson of The Knife emoting over a frantic electro rhythm, while Robyn provides another hands-in-the-air moment on "The Girl and the Robot".
In actuality though, they're still better at the dreamy stuff.

Röyksopp burst into the electronica scene with their ambient, flowing 1999 album "Melody AM", a freshman delight that propelled them to fame. I've had it in my car for all but 6 months since I bought it in 2004. However, their 2005 album "The Understanding" saw a dramatic shift to a much poppier, collection-of-singles feel. Junior finally brings with it a compromise.

The entire album starts off with a sample of the Norwegian duo's sincere and joyful laugh. The mood holds with "Happy Up Here", the delightful, bouncy main line that harkens back to Melody AM's mood but with The Understanding's poppy chord structures. An immediate change of tone of "The Girl and the Robot" brings a full vocal track with a backing of haunting moans like those of a middle-age religious piece. Truly this track accomplishes the darkness and melancholy that The Understanding strove for but could not quite reach. The strength of the stand-alone tracks becomes evident from this piece alone and shows how the duo can simultaneously build a rolling soundscape that will still hold its own in the pop singles charts. Vision One continues the future dystopian theme with serious compression occurring on the backing keyboard part lending the entire piece a bit of a sticky feel such as that of Melody AM's 40 years/Come back's string bass part. This Must Be It, albeit fairly forgettable, allows for a less sharp divide between its predecessor, thus allowing for a more sentimental theme to press forward. Royksopp forever delivers another deliciously instrumental piece, a time when they almost always shine. The heavy violins and slurring bass lines bring a feeling of epic confrontation and shift to the track.

Don't get me wrong. I love this band. Many of the tracks on this album are collaborations with other artists (Robyn, Anneli Drecker, Karin Dreijer-Anderson and Lykke Li), however. I found none of those very interesting, with the exception of "Tricky Tricky" (Dreijer-Anderson), which is amusing. The band is better off on its own, as in the dark and brooding piece incongruously titled "Röyksopp Forever" and in "Happy up Here", which is indeed a very bouncy opening track.
