Robyn - Behind the scenes of "Dancing on My Own"

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

Product Description

BBC Review

That five years passed between Robyn’s last album and 2010’s Body Talk trilogy shouldn’t surprise anyone: Robin Carlsson’s career has always been wayward. By 18 she'd scored a Max Martin-produced international smash hit (accidentally inventing Britney Spears as a by-product), before a period of artistic experimentation which alienated her major label bosses. She promptly dumped them, set up her own label and unleashed an extraordinary, eclectic eponymous LP on the world. As she sings on Body Talk, Part 2’s standout track: "the whole industry knows not to f*** with me".

But what makes this album so thrilling isn’t the unusual circumstances of its birth, but the brilliant songs it bears. Though less varied than its similarly excellent predecessor, it's actually more rewarding thanks to a higher quality threshold and a more consistent, beats-driven approach. It still showcases the gleeful ease with which Robyn flits between pop genres – she takes in 80s-tinged electro, soft house, playful hip hop, classic disco and orchestral, tear-teasing balladry. But the second installment of Body Talk is more coherent than the first.

The opening In Your Eyes is quite gorgeous, its tingling synths perfectly showcasing Robyn’s sweet, ringing melody. It would be the pinnacle of 95% of pop records, but is followed here by richer pickings. There's the shimmering, pleading Hang With Me, a heartfelt hug of a song, and the discofied, sharp-edged Love Kills, with its haunting Pet Shop Boys flourishes and fierce vocal.

On the more experimental tracks, Robyn still sounds utterly at ease. On Criminal Intent, she tries on Peaches’ languid rapping style and smirking innuendos and finds they fit perfectly, while the mesmeric We Dance to the Beat is apocalyptic, big-beat techno that genuinely unnerves. And then there's the aforementioned standout, the delirious Snoop Dogg collaboration U Should Know Better. Fourteen years ago it would have been impossible to imagine this – the teen-pop singer and hip hop outlaw swapping louche quips over a relentless, grimy electro stomp – but it works fabulously, the two MCs having such audible fun it would be plain rude not to join them.

A brief, brilliant record that leaves you panting, Body Talk, Part 2 is the latest evidence that Robyn is probably the best, most versatile pop star currently at work. If Part 3 is even half as good such an accolade will be proven beyond doubt.

4.0 out of 5 stars strange looking disc 18 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
Music for this much awaited album well up to par. Excellent album of light and shade. Pure pop and some experimental tracks to savour. I was a bit surprised when I saw the actual disc itself though.... even though I purchased it from a well known high street store (not Amazon sorry!) ... when I saw the cd I thought I had been sold a cdr. It looks exactly like a cdr (although it is a proper silver disc). However I gather that this is the kind of lo-tech artwork that appeals to 'the kids' these days and is apparently very cool. Oops - I nearly took it back as well!
Look forward to part 3 of this series which I gather is on its way. Can't wait!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Scintillating Sonic Jewels 13 Sep 2010
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Crikey! Ms Carlsson is certainly knocking 'em out
this year! Body Talk Pt.2 is the second of a projected
three-part work and in little more than half-an-hour its
creator delivers eight wonderfully crafted songs which
contribute to her growing reputation as one of the
freshest and most formidable talents in contemporary
electro-pop. Sure she has some talented collaborators
working along side her but the unbridled energy she
brings to the project bursts out of the speakers like
so many multicoloured sonic jewels! It is a pure delight!

There's very little here not to love but let's pick out
three tracks just to savour the whole. Opening number
'In My Eyes' springs to life on the backbone of a big
solid four-square beat and a chitter-chattering synth
obligato which carries Robyn's delectable vocal above
it like a warm wave heading for the shore.

'Hang With Me' is another delightful confection. A
dance-friendly composition with a luminously uplifting
chorus which made me grin from ear to ear (and trust me
that's a very big grin!)

Final track 'Indestructible (acoustic version)' pitches
our heroine into the heart of a mercurially beautiful string
arrangement by Carl Bagge. It is a magnificent creation.
Her voice shines like the sun. The finest vocal performance
of her career so-far. Truly stunning stuff!!

I'm looking forward to part three already.

Highly Recommended.
