The plaudits are already stacked high and Robyn has every right to be both pleased and proud. Her new album is a veritable jewel box of slick, accomplished, 21st century synth pop. She wears her influences affectionately on her sleeve - 80's Madonna rubs shoulders with vintage Kylie - without ever losing her own ground.
Her collaborations with writer/producer Klas Ahlund and sundry talented others has resulted in a collection of catchy, witty, laugh out loud, sing-along, dance-along gems. Indeed it's hard to have favorites with material as strong as this.
"Be Mine", "Crash and Burn Girl", "Robotboy" and "Should Have Known" will all have your toes twitching; the anthemic "With Every Heartbeat" is broken gloriously apart by the string quartet at its' pulsing centre and the gorgeous "Eclipse" gives a small glimpse of something more vulnerable in this beautiful woman's elfin heart.
A fine achievement.
