Editorial Reviews

US-only 2008 EP from the Swedish sensation. Tracks, 1. Konichiwa Bitches, 2. Cobrastyle, 3. Be Mine (Ballad Version), 4. With Every Heartbeat - with Kleerup (Acoustic Version) and 5. Jack U Off. A pint-sized atom bomb dispensing wisdom in three-minute modernist Pop bulletins on the post-adolescent condition. Robyn was born in Stockholm, Sweden and spent the first seven years of her life touring with her director father and actress mother in their Constructivist-inspired theatre company. At the age of 13 she was discovered by Swedish Pop singer Meja when singing a sad, self-written song about her parents' divorce in a school workshop. Already exploding in Sweden, The UK, France and Australia, Robyn has set her sights on America and is planning a Pop overthrow. Interscope.

Every song on the Rakamonie is what quality is all about. It left me wanting more and each song was incredibly different from the song that played before it. Robyn never stopped being too cool for skool, but when she cut her hair again and released this EP, she reminded us of why she's in a league of her own.

Konichiwa Bitches - same version on original Robyn release, but on this EP it has a little voiceover intro. Robyn sounds about 10 years old on this intro, which is so cute.
Cobrastyle - a cover song and Robyn did it better than the original. This song is mad cool! My fave line is, "Certain little boys I just stop deal with. Tell you they your friend and then bad-mouth again."
Be Mine - stripped down all the way and is better than the fast version. It's absolutely beautiful and her passion is obvious.
List of Demands - fun to hear and sing. Robyn's serious side, reminiscent of My Truth. The only problem is Jenny Wilson's horrible voice.
Jack U Off - Robyn's unpredictable here with this Prince cover. To hear such an innocent-sounding voice sing those words ... weirdly wonderful.

While I am happy to see a release of 'new' Robyn material available in the U.S., this EP can only be a predecessor to a hopefully planned full album (Which will include the Kleerup produced "With Every Heartbeat") or rerelease of 2005's ROBYN. Considered a mixed bag, RAKAMONIE offers selections that prove this Swede's multifaceted talent. With the current flavor in mainstream music, Robyn definately has her place to compete if not surpass the likes of Gwen Stefani and Fergie. Buy it for the outrageousness that is "Konichiwa Bitches" and her take on "Jack U Off." For something more meaty-Pick up the import of ROBYN which features amazing tracks "Who's That Girl" and Crash And Burn Girl."

I recommend this item for all the true Robyn fans that have been here from the beginning! It's sooooo good to see her back, sharing her music with the USA

The only songs that are the same here as on the album are 'Konichiwa B*tches' and 'Cobrastyle'. 'Be Mine!' is a wonderfully amazing ballad version and there is an acoustic of 'Whith Every Heartbeat - With Kleerup' which is just as good. and there is also an amazingly good (and funny) cover of Prince's 'Jack U Off'. definately a must have for any Robyn Fan!

Robyn Carlsson has been a noteworthy pop artist for over a decade, but unfortunately like so many other European pop stars, she has only had limited success in the United States. That may soon change. Robyn is no longer the petite teen who sang the unforgettably catchy 1997 hits '(Do You Know) What it Takes" and "Show Me Love." But she still has the dynamic voice, which wraps flawlessly around her beats, which make even the most original work by Timbaland and Danja seem outdated and irrelevant. The Rakamonie is a sound that is unique, and it belongs to Robyn. The catchy single Konitchiwa B***ches puts the self-absorbed pretention of American hip-hop to shame. Robyn can beat Britney, Fergie, and Gwen all at their own game, and this EP is just a taste of what she has to offer. The song "Cobrastyle" will stick in your head for WEEKS. You will bob your head and hum along, regardless of whatever type of music you like. Robyn Carlsson, now only 28, is on the verge of establishing herself as the world's top female pop talent....and I stress talent. Her 2005 album (which was re-issued in 2007 and includes the hit "With Every Heartbeat) is perhaps the best female vocal pop record of the decade.
