Product description

Product Description

`Robyn' is a collection of ultra-concise pop moments - that
rarest of things, a classic pop album. It's a sad-eyed, super-strong
battery of nuclear-powered pop. It's the best weapon she's got.

BBC Review

To internet music geeks everywhere Robyn needs absolutely no introduction. Queen of the blogosphere in 2006, the self-titled Robyn has been imported from Sweden and analysed time and time again. But then again even the casual music fan probably knows who she is - after all her big 1998 hit "Show Me Love" is a stalwart of every 1990s compilation, and little did we know Beverley Knight's "Keep The Fire Burning" is a Robyn classic.

Now almost 10 years after her original success, Robyn finally returns to the UK celebrating her new found independence as CEO of Konichiwa Records with the fierce "Konichiwa Bitches". Like Peaches, but more goofy, it's the first of two rap-laden tracks on the album, the second being a sweet cover of fellow Swedes Teddybears STHLM track "Cobrastyle".

Where Robyn's skills really lie is in creating the perfect bittersweet love song. "Be Mine!" (complete with exclamation mark to warm a pop fan's heart) is emotionally choking. An agitated cello and an urgent drumbeat accompany the description of a feeling we can all relate to - loving someone who doesn't love you back. Building until a devasting spoken-word breakdown, 'I just miss you... that's all.' - breaks your heart.

There's no time to wipe the tears away with the sublime "With Every Heartbeat" following. Produced by Kleerup (former member of Teddybears and the drummer in Robyn's live band), if we could hear no other song but this for the rest of our life, we would be content. Our fingers reach to touch the lasers as euphoric yet melancholy strings swell and Robyn defiantly promises to 'never look back'.

The fact that we've not even left room to comment on how the mighty Knife produced the glistening steel-drum ridden "Who's That Girl", the perkiness of the cute "Bum Like Me" or how Jamelia would kill for a ballad as elegant as "Handle Me" shows quite how magnificent Robyn is. Whether the British public end up welcoming her back is quite a different matter, but if you're after pop with feeling - you won't want to miss this. --Talia Kraines
