Robyn - Body Talk
2010 was surely a great period for all Robyn fans out there, with all the amazing new gems she released throughout the year on the EP's Body Talk Pt. 1 and Pt. 2. And now it all comes to an end in the best way possible, with a full-length album containing 5 songs from each of those previous EP's, plus 5 new songs.
The singularity of Robyn has been much discussed already. She really is on a league of her own, with enough attributes to become a superstar but also maintaining her own peculiar individuality, something that probably comes from her scandinavian roots. And while her songs are mostly dancefloor-oriented, she is always able to lend that unique "Robyn-touch" to any Hi-NRG club track, transforming it into an over-emotional and highly personal anthem.
An impeccable ear for creating absurdly-catchy hooks and writing genius tongue-in-cheek lyrics does the rest: in the end, the fact that Body Talk sounds already like a greatest hits collection, and considering what came before, shouldn't really be much of a surprise to anyone, anymore. (9/10)
