Editorial Reviews

Before she hit the charts around the world with her self titled album and singles like 'Konichiwa Bitches' and 'With Every Heartbeat', Swedish Pop sensation Robyn had already unleashed three albums of delectable Pop treats. Don't Stop The Music was her third album, originally released in 2003. Sounding like the perfect mixture of her radio-friendly debut album Robyn Is Here and the more introspective follow-up My Truth, this third platter is a feast for the ears, the soul, the heart and the feet. 11 tracks including 'Keep The Fire Burning' and the title track. RCA.

Robyn has definately grown with us! Definately the same GREAT voice, she still has the ATTITUDE and style , but she's got a lot more. She's got soul, diversity, and she's got the ability to REALLY write some good songs! The end of almost every song has these amazing 'bridges' a good change of pace that doesn't seem out of place. You'll get samples of the songs on her sight but when you actually buy it, and you really should you'll be pleasantly surprised that the good songs are great! Its so worth the import costs. Get it guys, thank me later!
1. Keep this Fire Burning- This song is great song with great lyrics you'll love it. 10/10
2. Don't Stop the Music- A great dance(/hiphop/rock) song about overcoming obstacles, very empowering! Has a great chance at being an anthem. 8/10
3. O Baby- I love this song, its a ballad with a perfect groove to it, the lyrics are simple but oh so heartfelt. Showcases her voice really well. 10/10
4. Blow My Mind- This is a [really good] song! I guess this song sounds kinda techno pop, its a mid-tempo song with a nice beat to it. These are the kinds of lyrics Christina and Britney really wanna sing. Robyn's voice in this song is very thin, whispery and kinda soft child-like, it goes really well with the song. Also the song has this sillyness in the background, its very quirky. 9/10
5. Should Have Known- This song starts out with the sound of the wheel as it slows from wheel of fortune, it's so great! The background music sounds very simplistic in the beginning, almost not there, then it gets very lush. I love, love, love the background music in this song. The lyrics are very straight foward in the song and you can absolutely FEEL the emotion. Also she says the f word a few times, and that to me is all the reason to buy this cd!!!

The impressing voice she may not have. Still Robyn knows what's going on in the pop music. "Should Have Known" and "Blow My Mind" are the little sparkling gems produced by Guy Sigsworth, who also collaborated with Bjork, Imogen Heap and Madonna. All the other songs would make Britney and JLO really envy, but I shouldn't even compare Robyn to those mediocre ladies. Just get "Don't Stop the Music" and you'll know what I mean.

Why is "Don't Stop The Music" so good? I had my doubts after visiting Robyn's BMG/Jive website and watching the videos for two songs off this disc. Gee whiz...whoever produced them ought to be shot or something. The title cut video ought to be named "Robyn Can Walk On Walls" -- but she's definitely too old at 24 to be playing Alice In Wonderland. The other video -- for "Keep This Fire Burning -- is a little better but it has some guy who looks like the "after" picture of Scott Weiland, if you know what I mean. If this video is supposed to be a dream sequence Robyn ought to be on medication. Or more medication.
Add to it the lofty price of an import CD and I ought to be on medication, too, for buying it.
Except for one thing: the core of this album is by far her best work. Robyn works with some of the best producers in the R&B genre but this effort is much more her own work than her first two CDs. She also works with some of Sweden's best musicians and that's much more evident here, too. "Blow My Mind" and "Moonlight" add a beautiful touch of New Age to her pop style. I think they're also an indication of the direction she wants to take her career in her next production. If she does it'll be a sea change. Anything like these two tunes and she'll have the most ethereal yet subtly whimsical album since "Yellow Submarine."
But there's still a lot of the "old" Robyn to appreciate, too. It is, after all, a dance album. [After ABBA, it's like dance CDs are now required by Swedish law!] "Keep This Fire Burning" is actually a good tune despite the bad video but if you want to dance, try "Big City." And if you dance way too much, there 's "Psycho.

Pricey to get my hands on this one but Robyn's music is soo worth it. I love pop. Only problem is I cannot open with windows media or rip it to my computer to put it on an mp3 player. There's an embedded player that autostarts and that's it for playing on a PC otherwise I'm toting it back and forth from car cd player to home cd players, pc, etc..kind of a pain. Spoiled by the digital age.

This album really is as good as the other reviewers have written. I've loved Robyn since before the Body Talk series, and I have been on a quest lately to complete my repertoire with whatever she's released. So, when I found out about this album, I immediately looked for it on Amazon.

As of October 2012, a used copy is going for $130 and a new copy for almost $1,000? Really? I did some research on the web and found a used copy for $20!

Now, how many more used copies out there are you going to find for $20? I don't know. But I do know that everyone should obviously be prudent when purchasing from Amazon. Do your research!

I am 100% in love with this CD. It really does have a bubblegum pop feel that's not sickening. From what I've read of Robyn, she seems to be Europe's Britney Spears... except with talent and integrity. I tend to love artists at some point, and at that point their work can deteriorate... Robyn not so. Her ingenuity with words and the energy she puts into everything really makes the listener feel some of that.
