Customer Reviews

It's finally here

It's been a long wait, what with all the delays, but it's worth it.

Unsurprisingly, given the nature of the record, it takes a good few plays to get used to, but it's very rewarding. Beautiful songs with captivating sounds and melodies - it kind of takes you on a journey and conjures up some beautiful scenes, and it's very ponderous and thought-provoking, as they promised. Some songs are better than others - The Fear in particular is a 7-minute masterpiece - and Junior was always going to be a hard album to follow even though they are very different to each other (as the titles suggest), but overall it's brilliant. A superb downbeat and relaxing album.

Engaging

Not sure if it's 4 or 5 stars, but in view of some poor uninformed poor reviews it gets top stars from me. It's an unusual album, full of inventiveness, and arguably one of the most intersting albums of 2010. Deliberately different from Junior, therefore making comparisons a little redundant, this album is layerd with sublime electronic textures and oddities requiring repeated listens. It is at times different from anything I have heard before. 'The Drug' is good, but not the most interesting here if the most commercial sounding track. The Alcohol and The Fear are mesmerising, the latter an epic which has to be used as a soundtrack somewhere!! Towards the end 'Coming Home' and 'A Long, Long Way' bring the tone down but at the same time sweep you away to chilled euphoric bliss. I wasn't sure whether 'The Final Day' was the wisest choice to end the album at first, it's beats are unnerving, but addictive, like the whole album. It works, it's quite a triumph!

Decidedly Disappointing

Having enjoyed Junior for most of 2009 I am a little disappointed with its follow up. Royksopp seem to have got stuck down a dark alley with all the songs being much more ambient and downtempo than before, extremely minimalist and almost without any melody. This is a very different album and unlike the previous three which were great for the lounge and chillout moments, this one is almost depressing. Perhaps I need a few more listens before it grows on me.

iTunes take note that your Album Review content is for Junior, not this album which unfortunately has no vocalists.

Biography

Formed: 1998 in Bergen, Norway

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Norwegian duo Röyksopp compensated for the cold climes of their native Tromsø by making some of the warmest, most inviting downbeat electronica of the new millennium, exemplified by early tracks like "Eple" and "Poor Leno." The pair, Torbjørn Brundtland and Svein Berge, both grew up in Tromsø and began recording in the early '90s. Local-made-good Geir Jenssen (aka Biosphere) provided tutelage and almost convinced the duo...
