Body Talk is the final part of Robyn's 'Body Talk' project. Part 1 and 2 offered new songs in sometimes lovely, simple acoustic settings - amidst some great beats - which have now re-appeared emboldened as much bigger, fully electronic/pop songs. She made the earlier versions while out on the road.
What a fantastic collection of tunes she has amassed here. In the spirit of Blondie, Pet Shop Boys, LCD, Giorgio Moroder, Kylie and Kraftkwerk this album sounds like a greatest hits because so many of the tunes genuinely hit it. I like pop music with an edge; brilliantly catchy but subversive. The delicate/hardcore, heartfelt words and melodies are best heard on Dancing On My Own, Indestructible, Love Kills (not the Freddie Mercury song), Hang With Me and None Of Dem - and they sound really good loud.
It's a real shame Robyn isn't as big as should she be; this album is class. If you enjoy edgy, intelligent pop music and haven't heard this yet, give it a go.
The new songs such as Stars 4eva and Time Machine are an excellent addition and really improve the quality of the album as a whole. This is Robyn's strongest work to date as she ventures more and more into the electro-pop-dance world. A few of the tracks are reminiscent of a soundtrack from the numerous 80's scifi shows (but with a heavier bass obviously).
All in all worth the money as it plays like a dream. My favourite album of the year. If you own the other two Body Talk albums then perhaps just download the new songs as it seems a bit excessive to have several copies of the same tracks. If you have yet to purchase any Body Talk material then look no further. Get downloading! May Robyn rule for many years to come!
Watching the video to Dancing on My Own reminds me how great dark clubs can be,bopping away in your own little corner,I miss it.
Lyrics could be a complaint for some. Maybe they can be a little childish. But the sheer delight of hearing pop done so well is enough. If there was justice Robyn would be a world wide superstar.
