I'd say the good tracks on this are on a par with Röyksopp's Night Out
, which is still my favourite Royksopp album; their live performances often being improvements of their studio work.
The opener, "Happy up here" is quite upbeat with nice buzzsaw undertones, a lovely, bright head-nodder. The momentum continues with the explosive awesomeness of "The Girl and the Robot", which, for me, is their best effort on this album. It's slightly let down by the dynamics going into compression, like a badly recorded mixtape.
The next uptempo track is "This must be it", great catchy riffs, great vocals, more instant appeal.
For me, the album is more than worth it for those 3 tracks alone, and I can't wait to see them performed live next month!
"Royksopp forever" and "Silver cruiser" are nice chillout tunes.
"Tricky Tricky" begins with annoying vocals but becomes more interesting as it builds. The bassline is also a bit too repetitive, really needs some remix work.
"It's what I want" is quite good, though it could be better with some vocoder use.
Out of the other tracks, "Vision one", "You dont have a clue" and "True to life" feel quite pedestrian, and "Miss it so much" is rather euro-poppy with helium-assisted vocals.
