Robyn's Global Takeover Pt. 1 June 15 2010
By Andrew Ellington - Published on Amazon.com
I totally remember back in the late 90's when Robyn released her debut album of pop-fluff-goodness and I was a young pre-teen and totally engulfed by her. Then, I forgot about her. Back in 2008 Robyn dropped a bomb on me. Her self-titled revamp came as quite a shock for me, and I was immediately smitten by her once again, the difference being that three years later I am still thinking about her almost daily.

Robyn has decided to drop THREE bombs on us this year. Her album `Body Talk' has been spliced three ways and will be scattered over the musical year. Her first installment has been released today and I'm already neck deep in my third go-through and I'm continually amazed at how much I adore what she's done here. If ever there was a poster child for the dance craze-rave world it is (and may always be) Robyn. Lady Gaga may be more `accessible' and M.I.A. may be more controversial (possibly only because of popularity) but there is no denying, at least in my mind, that Robyn is the DANCEHALL QUEEN!

Hopefully this three-part album will cement her global takeover!

Sinking my teeth in what she's provided here, I'll go ahead and just spout off a few of my feelings on the album as a whole. With only eight tracks (not including the remixed bonus track of `Dancing On My Own') she really had to hit every nail on the head in order to validate such a low track count. She does just that. Sure, there are two tracks here that hit a little below for me (Don't Tell Me What To Do' and `Cry When You Get Older') but they are still very good tracks. The opening track lets us know that Robyn is set on perfecting the techno-industrial-pop-hiphop-dancehall genre bending techniques she littered all over her 2008 masterpiece. While it isn't the strongest track on the album, its vibe is a surefire winner with hard hitting musical delivery and that slick attitude that makes Robyn such a force to reckon with. `Cry When You Get Older' has a nice message and a nice verse structure (signature rap-pop delivery that I eat up like candy) but the chorus for me is a tad underwhelming.

`Fembot' explosively gets the album (truly) started. The structure of this song is light, airy, pop-princess yumminess that totally adds the needed layers of edge that make it signature Robyn. `Dancehall Queen' may be my favorite track on the album (they are all so good though). It has an almost `Police-esque' vibe to it, with an air of Reggae influence until the bouncy chorus catches on and brings a gigantic smile to my face. Robyn has a beautiful way of making HAPPY music that is edgy enough to validate adult enjoyment.

The double hit of `Dancing On My Own' and the `PMS Remix' is a surefire highlight. The original version is heart-tugging in its context yet certainly worthy of dance-floor choreography. It's crazy to see the difference in tone between the two versions. On the original you get the idea that Robyn is the sweet and shafted heroine, yet on the remix version she comes off almost like a vengeful stalker with a harsher musical arrangement and a steady aggression in her vocals. Lyrically, it is the same, but these are two completely different songs.

I can't decide which version is better!

I absolutely love the acoustic version of `Hang With Me', a song that was not a standout on her self-titled masterpiece is now front and center and getting much needed special attention. `None of Dem' is slinky, seductive and completely engaging. The closing track, `Jag Vet En Dejlig Rosa' is an unexpected delight, a lullaby of sorts that closes out the album beautifully. Despite the fact that it does seem somewhat out of place (I mean, where did this come from?) it really makes the most of its presence. Robyn has a beautiful voice that doesn't often get to shine, taking a backseat to her innovative style and musical structure. Allowing her to sing sweet and softly to us her in native tongue (I'm guessing that this is Swedish), this beautiful track shows us that Robyn has a LOT to offer.

I, for one, am willing to gobble her all up!

I've Got Some News For You July 9 2010
By etc. reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
She started out a teen pop star. She created tunes that everyone would dance to at their Middle School Dance. But, just like anyone, she had to grow up. But instead of doing it like today's pop stars, she did it gracefully. Transitioning from her debut album's sweet, pre-teen songs to deep and meaningful songs (in her second album "My Truth" Robyn sang about an abortion she had in her earlier teens). She gracefully transformed from sweet, poppy Robyn to Robyn, a woman whose songs can make you laugh and shed a tear all in 35 minutes. A woman who mixes sweet vocals with ridged, techno beats. Instead of screaming and dressing up like a slutty Big Bird (Miley Cyrus, no offense to fans of Miley) she started to show how wonderful she can really be (not that Robyn wasn't wonderful to begin with). Her comeback album "Robyn (2005-2008)" mixed cheerful, upbeat music with reluctant, amazing ballads. And now the dance hall queen is back to show us why she sits in that throne.

The albums opener "Don't F***ing Tell Me What To Do" is Robyn simply complaining about lives everyday, annoying, true problems. If it were anyone else I would say "shut up, stop complaining" but Robyn tells us about these troubles in such a simplistic and truthful way that it almost sounds like she's speaking for the rest of us, not just herself. Then comes "Fembot." Robyn talks about how women are treated like robots, which in many cases is true. She raps about how she is "fresh out the box," she's "the latest model" with "automatic booty applications." It's a fun, catchy, feministic proclamation that she does have feelings, she's not made out of metal. Next on Robyn's Body Talking Lineup is "Dancing On My Own." In this song Robyn describes a situation many of have been in. Watching the person we want with someone. She sings about the tough fact that no matter how hard she tries, this won't change. But she will press on, she'll dance alone, and in the end smile. Then comes "Cry When You Get Older." Amazon's review sees this song has a sister to sibling point of view. But in a way, I see it has a note to self. She's telling herself that this is not the end, somewhat of a follow up to "Dancing On My Own."

"Dancehall Queen" is a song that may also relate to "Dancing On My Own" or "Fembot" because in a way she is saying that "you did this to yourself. Leave me alone, its not my fault you broke my heart. Maybe you forgot, but this is my space, and you're not ruining it. Remember, I'm the queen of my own land, and my own heart. And you're not entering either." "None of Dem" is a song from the point of view of an outcast. Almost like a kid entering a new school, where no one understands you or you're personality. Where "none of dem get your style" or can dance at your standards. "Hang With Me" is a song that finally shows Robyn opening up her heart, but not too much, just enough to hang with her. Finally, "Jag Vet En Delig Rosa" is a song that reminds us where Robyn began, Sweden. She reminds us of her Swedish roots through her version of this Swedish version.

All in all, Robyn has made yet another musical masterpiece. Robyn has some news for us: she's still at the top of her game and won't be falling off anytime soon.

Powerhouse June 23 2010
By Douglas King - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
**** 1/2

Robyn is the most exciting artist in the current pantheon of pop music ... it's too bad that most American's haven't heard of her, or if they have, only remember her from the couple of hits she had here as a teenager in the 90's. The sweet little girl who sang "Show Me Love" has grown into a pop powerhouse, who can deftly meld various genres into her own glitchy, catchy, edgy concoctions.

At a scant 8 tracks, "Body Talk part 1" still covers a lot of ground. "Don't F*ing Tell Me What To Do" is an unlikely choice for an opener, since it's a hard electronica track that doesn't feature any kind of a melody, really ... and yet it works as an introduction to an album by an enigmatic pop artist who plays by her own rules. "Fembot" comes closer to a conventional pop song, with its twitchy beats and cutesy vocals, but the album really hits its stride with "Dancing On My Own", which is the perfect 21st century pop song. With its throbbing industrial sounding beat and passionate vocals, Robyn takes on a familiar pop theme - the pain of seeing your ex with someone else - and reinvents it.

The album spends the rest of its five tracks packing in a lot of punch, with Robyn taking elements of techno, hip-hop, traditional pop standards, and reggae, and mashing into her own mini opus, which is supposedly only the first of three short albums she plans on releasing this year. With her penchant for borrowing from lots of genres and forgoing typical album formats, Robyn reminds me less of current female pop stars and more of pop oddity Prince in his heyday.

Robyn rocks! July 28 2010
By L.R. Sully - Published on Amazon.com
Robyn sure knows how to party, as she does on this album. I have been listening to this album nonstop since it came out this summer. My favorite songs are so hard to say because they are all so good, but I especially love Fembot, Dancing on My Own, and Cry When You Get Older, as well as None of Dem. I think Robyn's next album, Body Talk Pt. 2, will be amazing as well. I have heard the accompanied version of Hang With Me that will appear on Pt. 2 and it sounds even better than the acoustic version on this album. Can't wait!
By the way, I just saw Robyn in concert and she was amazing! She sounds really great live and is so adorable and spunky dancing like a spazz all over the stage. See her if you get the chance! She won't be touring in the U.S. for much longer.
