It's one thing to produce an enjoyable album ,one that is in thrall to the closet( or with some not so closet) hedonist in us all. Music that propels us onto the dance floor even though normally we would be hugging the walls grinning sheepishly at those shaking their collective booties. It's quite another thing to do this but also produce an album with real emotional impact ,an album that connects with the heart as well as the hips and feet. I believe though, with Junior, that's exactly what Royksopp have done.
The funky breaks, cooed vocals and perambulating keyboards on opener "Happy Up Here" shows a irreverent playful side but it's with "The Girl And The Robot " ( with guest vocalist Robyn) that the album really takes off. As well as being a terrific pop tune the cleverly nuanced sequenced vocals give the song an emotional anchor makes it more than a lightweight and sugary confection. "Vision One" offers a lugubrious vocal and misshapen electronic glitches.
Karin Dreijer-Andersson of The Knife and Fever Ray delivers her unique husky rapacious tones on "Tricky Tricky "and the quite brilliant "This Must Be It" which is an electronic act of pop subversion to rival R.E.M,s stellar moment "Fall On Me" off Life's Rich Pageant (Remastered). "Royksopp Forever " suddenly set frees a widescreen cinematic beauty until Lykke Li accompanies "Miss It So Much" which is essentially cheesy Euro -disco but it,s extremely good cheesy Euro -disco.
The album loses momentum with the glossy but airy "You Don't Have A Clue" and the serious plodding "Silver Cruiser" which would have been better named Silver Chugger".

By the looks of the reviews here we seem to be going down the well travelled Air and Daft Punk line of... Oh it isn't as good as the first album, I'm very disappointed... and... They've sold out, this is all very mainstream. Well, that's music, typecast by a stunning debut album and it's all downhill from there, nothing the artist does after that will ever be enough. Lets just concentrate on this album shall we and remember music is all subjective.

First of all, if you are thinking of buying, grab a listen to the track 8 - 'You Don't Have A Clue' which is one of the best tracks I have heard in a very long time and this raises this from an average 3 stars to 4. 'Happy up here' will no doubt get played to death on the radio, but I don't listen to the radio much so that's not a problem for me anyway, I'm sure for others it will reduce some 'cred' for the Royksopp, it's catchy, upbeat and mainstream but I like it. The rest of the tracks I would say are pretty average, but then Melody AM had some average tracks on it too, there....... I said it.

So, in echo of other reviews the third installment is not like the first album, but why would it be ? - that would be boring and repetative ?? However what is offered is a somewhere inbetween - it's not melody AM and not the Understanding but it's sort of both but different. Personally i admire the evolution of Royksopp, i also look forward to the rumoured Senior release later in the year. If you are non blinkered enough to have bought both the previous offerings, and you are willing to embrace evolution in music then you will no doubt find this to your liking. If you are looking for another melody am this is not it. ITS THE NEW ALBUM !!!!!! BUY IT

Junior reminded me just what Royks. are capable of - true listening that will keep you coming back for more. Melody AM was truely inspiring and this albumn really does bring back what Royks do best - funky chilled house.

I can't help but feel that "The Understanding" was an experimental side to the group - a feel out to other sub-genres, similar to Daft Punk's "Discovery" to "Human After All" transition. Both moves I didn't like because they didnt seem like the group's original intentions.

Junior is a very appropriate name for this album I feel - a look back to Royk's roots.

The tracks that stand out are of course the Single "Happy Up Here" for it's evolution from Eple, "The Girl and the Robot" for a real deep house track, and "Royksopp Forever" being my particular favorite.

A full flurry of 5 stars from me. Welcome back Royksopp :)

I discovered Royksopp after watching the film Cashback and being eager to know what that incredible tune was - "What Else Is There?" from the album Understanding in case you are interested.

Since then I have bought most of their earlier stuff and found bits of it to be extremely good. However there are some tracks on every album so far which haven't appealed to me. That was until we get to Junior, here they have got it right across the board, and there is nothing I don't like. My favourites at the moment are: "Vision One" and "You Don't Have a Clue". The brand of electropop on Junior is spot on and quite simply I love it!

Astounding! I would have given this album 5 stars after one listen but over 10 listens in I would like to give it 6! To dismiss this album as a lot of 'pop tunes' is to miss the point.The amount of work that has gone into each track is plain to hear right from the start.Royksopp never fail to deliver and the use of great vocalists,especially Karin Dreijer-Andersson,just enriches the whole experience.You have to wait a long time for their albums but it is worth it.This album bears little resemblance to Melody a.m.,it is much more layered,but if you love The Understanding then this is the 7.1 version of that! Buy it,so they can keep making more! What else can make you feel this good for only £8?
