Product Description

Amazon.com

Robin Carlsson--better known as Robyn, the diminutive Swedish fireball who scored a hit with 1997’s "Show Me Love"--has slowly but surely made her mark as an international R & B queen. Robyn, her fourth album, is arguably her strongest statement to date, jam-packed with sassy, streetwise lyrics and an array of novel beats and songs. Tracks like "Be Mine" and the playful, upbeat "Konichiwa Bitches" are instant, immaculate pop gems, while "With Every Heartbeat"--which boasts a Royksopp-esque melancholy, sidereal bleeps and rousing strings--is much more dance than R & B. "Who's That Girl" (produced by The Knife) rides an infectious electroclash groove; "Crash and Burn Girl" is a cheerful take on disco; while "Bum Like Me" and "Should Have Known" (which owes a conspicuous debt to Prince) are shiny slower jams that warn against getting hurt by time-wasting men. With the exception of "Eclipse" and "Anytime You Like", Robyn is a delightfully upbeat album, cementing Robyn’s reputation as a kick-ass pop diva with some seriously deadly Ninja moves. --Danny McKenna

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

This song is ridiculously good Should Have Seen it Coming - Probably the weakest track on the album, if only for the fact that the swearing rings a little false.
Night Cheese
It's a common error of one who's unfamiliar with pop music in general and those are generally dismissive of pop music.

I became a Robyn fan when Do You Know (What It Takes) came out in the U.S. back in 1997, and four albums later I am more of a Robyn fan than ever.

This record possesses a maturity, variety in styles, hooky arrangements, and writing strength (as well as sincere vocals) that is tough to find in new music. From the introduction which builds up Robyn's talents and marks the start of a new era in Robyn's career (after three successful albums on RCA/BMG she decided to start her own label) and launches perfectly into the spirited Who's That Girl, you know you're in for a treat.

The tempo drops a bit for Handle Me, a slick track about Robyn being a tough gal and not taking any nonsense from a guy. It then segways into the delicate but assertive Robotboy before the glorious Be Mine, a delicious mix of beats and strings set to a perfect vocal from Robyn. An interlude is the perfect lead-in to the feisty Crash & Burn Girl where Robyn tries to reason with a girl who fails to recognize she is the cause of her own problems.

Another quick interlude of Robyn mixing it up in the studio leads into the guilty pleasure that is Konichiwa Bitches (could this be a slight teaser reference to Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Girls?), where Robyn takes the lyrics to a new level of adult-themed fun and also does a fantastic job on her first rap song! The fun calms a bit for the addictive guitar ballad Bum Like You where Robyn proclaims "my new favourite thing to do is wasting my time on a bum like you" as she professes her love and support for a man despite his faults and shortcomings.

This leads nicely into the haunting Eclipse, probably Robyn's finest downtempo moment (tied with the piano version of Be Mine which features on the Be Mine CD-single).

If you like anything along the lines of Madonna, Britney, Kylie Minogue, or Fergie, then this is right up your alley, because Robyn Carlsson combines the sonic blend of differing styles of pop and has turned out a gem of an album that is beyond being worth the extra few bucks to buy this import. This is just brilliant, with catchy rap-like sing alongs of the track "Konichiwa B***ches" and "Cobrastyle" to the string-laden uptempo pop of "Be Mine!" and the dance number "With Every Heartbeat" which is brilliant 80's style dance pop that could have come right off of Cyndi Lauper's "She's So Unusual" album. Previously I was impressed with the sound of Sweetbox, but this blows that away. I had once thought the futuristic beats of Timbaland and Danjahands were unique, but this blows that away. I was once under the impression that, as pop music goes, no new ground would ever be broken. I was wrong. This is the female dance-pop equivalent to Michael Jackson's Thriller, it is that good. All the sarcastic, sardonic jeers that I have made in past reviews about the bland, pretentious, hyped-up releases of today's lame pop stars must have been answered from above, because this album is as close to a miracle that I have heard in quite some time. Where as once I was blind, now I see....I see Robyn making a huge comeback worldwide in 2008.

Alright, so I'll be honest with everyone. I didn't know Robyn was still putting albums out until I found her self-titled album, but even then...it was expensive! I didn't buy the actual CD (shhh) but the version I own is completely legal. Anyway, the point is that I haven't heard the albums inbetween her first smash album and this one. You can imagine how extremely shocked I was to hear, firstly, how different this album is, and then how similar it is.

There is a hard, almost crystalline structure to this album. Robyn, here, is a glitzy, hard-a**ed celebrity who doesn't want any food in her jacuzzi and fills her jeans to bursting. The beats are unforgiving and jagged, the lyrics are sharp and jagged. That is what hit me first about this album. Then you find the soft underbelly, whether it be in the "sing out loud" chorus of "Who's That Girl", or the alluring guitar that backs up the chorus of "Handle Me". Then there's Robyn's voice, which is both hard and soft. This chick can sing, and the sad part is that we've known that for years now.

Robyn starts off with a jarring introduction to the platinum-haired singer, not only with her being a demanding diva, but the scary "thunder, lightning, and hells bells" accompanied by a quick-talking dark sinister voice, hyping her up for the world. This drops into "Who's That Girl", Robyn's take on the way her man sees her, I believe. She noticed that other girls are always pretty, while she's only sometimes pretty. She doesn't like the rules of the relationship, and she asks her man who the girl is that he wants her to be, because she definitely isn't that girl. This is followed by my favorite song on the album, "Handle Me".

It had been a while since I'd heard from Robyn (ROBYN IS HERE was a favorite album of mine in the 90's), so when I snagged the original import almost a year and a half ago, I about died and went to heaven.

As stunning as BACK TO BLACK from Amy Winehouse, if not more original. Props to both artists for writing their own material (for the most part).

This is a STELLLAARR return to the scene for Robyn, who surprisingly took a turn on background vocals for the once-reigning princess, Britney Spears, on "Piece Of Me" - it was produced by some of Robyn's Swedish buddies.

BUY THIS ALBUM if you are a fan of envelope pushing, yet widely accessible pop music that will live on as a testament to what can be done without consulting Timbaland, The Neptunes, Rodney Jerkins, Max Martin, The Matrix, or John Shanks.
