5.0 out of 5 stars The closest to perfect I've encountered in a while., 14 Feb. 2008

This review is from: Robyn (UK Edition Bonus Track) (Audio CD)
I wasn't expecting much from this album to be honest, I bought it because of how much I loved "Be Mine". However, the rest of the album is AMAZING. Curriculum Vitae is just the introduction to the album, but there are some witty lyrics in there, it's just a guy talking about how amazing Robyn is and comparing her to other famous people. Konichiwa Bitches and Cobrastyle really surprised me, I'd never heard Konichiwa Bitches before and I love the style and sound of the song, it's Robyn rapping over a fantastic futuristic beat. Cobrastyle is pretty much in the same vein as Konichiwa Bitches with the fact that there isn't really any singing but the beat is amazing! I don't normally like electro-pop but these two songs blew me away.

Next is "Handle Me" and you pretty much know the deal with that. A good song, has actually grown on me a lot, still don't see why that one word is still censored though. Next is my personal favourite on the album - "Bum Like You". Once again an AMAZING beat, and I absolutely love the chorus. I never realised how beautiful Robyn's voice is until I heard this song.

The rest of the album is also fantastic, I have nothing but praise for it so I'll just focus on the two tiny downsides on this album - "Eclipse" and "Anytime You Like". Earlier I stated that Robyn had a beautiful voice, and this is very true, but unfortunately in my eyes she doesn't really carry off "Eclipse". It's pretty much the only ballad on the album, and I'm glad because the track is actually quite bland. Nothing groundbreaking at all, even though I could listen to the song, I just find it boring. "Anytime You Like" doesn't really progress throughout the song, Robyn's voice doesn't really change pitch much, I got bored after a minute of it, but all in all an absolutely amazing album. Definitely worth buying the UK version for the cheeky, witty "Jack U Off" - it's short but it's still brilliant and the lyrics put a smile on my face.
