Album Review

Robyn's prolific 2010 culminated with Body Talk, the full-length album that featured songs from the Body Talk, Pt. 1 and Pt. 2 EPs, plus enough new songs to make up a third EP. Releasing that much new music within six months was a feat in and of itself, but the fact that each part of Body Talk was so consistent made the whole project even more impressive. And, by revealing bits and pieces of what went into the final album — as well as parts that didn’t — Robyn offered her fans a window into her process, allowing glimpses of the moods and approaches that go into making an album and letting listeners get to know these songs in different contexts. Of course, Body Talk's appeal isn’t just experimental: by picking the best of the project’s songs, it feels like a greatest-hits collection and brand new album rolled into one. Familiarity suits these songs well, whether it’s the tight, bright “Fembot,” the aching “Dancing on My Own,” or “Hang with Me,” which swoons with arpeggios that sound like falling recklessly in love, even though that’s just what Robyn warns against. Hearing the songs from the EPs on Body Talk makes Body Talk, Pt. 1 and Pt. 2 feel like deluxe singles from the album, as well as its building blocks. However, different versions of these tracks, like the more anthemic take on “In My Eyes,” ensure that the album doesn’t feel cobbled together. Some songs sound even better here than they did on the EPs: “Love Kills” and “None of Dem”'s playful dancehall function more clearly as bridges to other tracks than they did before. Body Talk’s new songs also make good on the EPs’ gradual shift from fierce independence to togetherness, particularly on “Call Your Girlfriend,” a thoughtful twist on a love triangle that finds Robyn enjoying new love while being concerned for someone hurt by it, and “Stars 4-Ever,” which gives a fizzy, Euro-dance tinged happy ending to the Body Talk project. After the EPs’ conciseness, the album feels downright roomy, and maybe slightly too long; obviously, Robyn had a lot of songs to work with. Overall, though, Body Talk is more focused than Robyn, and just as bold in the intimacy it creates with listeners.

Customer Reviews

Amazing

Robyn takes the best of the other two body talk albums, adds five more, and makes the album of the year. Seriously, more people need to listen to her. It's a crime that trash like Ke$ha get way more recognition that passionate, artistic and brilliant artists like Robyn. If you remotely like music, you'll love this album. Support Robyn!

Robyn is taking over!

I was lucky enough to have seen her in Vancouver and it was by far the best concert I have ever been too. Robyn had the audience captive the entire show, we even got her to stage dive! She's an up and coming force in the music biz and the whole Body Talk series is amazeballs! Can't wait for more.

One of the year's best

Love it! There's so many outstanding tracks on one album it's hard to handle! "Dancing On My Own", "Hang with Me", "Call Your Girlfriend" and "Indestructible" are great pop tracks, "Time Machine" and "Love Kills" sounds amazing in clubs, and "Don't F--king Tell Me What to Do" and "We Dance to the Beat" keeps things real interesting and are what gives her her individual identity in a sea of familiar and generic pop stars. "None of Dem" and "Fembot" are also great songs, but the last three aren't her best. Just what other pop star can have heartache like "Dancing On My Own", attitude like "None of Dem", duke it out in a rap battle with Snoop in "U Should Know Better" and have a fascinating sci-fi track like the throbbing "We Dance to the Beat", all rolled into one album that just fits together immaculately? Yeah, that's what I thought. Just listen to "Call Your Girlfriend" and you'll understand.
