  1. With Body Talk Pt 1 she's ready to finally take her place at pop's top table of greats. For once, the sequel can't some soon enough.
  2. Loving Body Talk means finding pleasure in the perfect execution of pop conventions; it means recognizing the click.
  3. On her fifth album, Body Talk Pt. 1, Swedish electro-pop singer Robyn proves she's ready for the dancefloor.
  4. Robyn's transition to the boldest--and maybe loneliest--girl in the room allowed her to showcase her versatile range of emotions and musical influences, plenty of which are on display in Body Talk Pt. 1.
  5. This first instalment is impressive, but thin at eight tracks. Would it not have been better to hold back, and release just one, truly stunning record?
  6. Capped with a Swedish folk gem, Body Talk shows a dancehall queen with more than just blonde ambition.
  7. Robin Carlsson has transcended myriad label problems to transform herself into the most glamorous and most fascinating electro-pop diva. [July 2010, p. 139]

    Robyn definitely brings the best back on "Body Talk Pt. 1" The best song ont eh album is "Dancing on My Own". The lyrics and synths are hot and the accoustic version of "Hang With Me" is the best!!! Expand

    Robyn is the Queen of pop. Every song talks with a different tone, a different mood. The best little piece of pop tis year. By single tracks Swedes don't do it more and more often: The Knife, The Radio Dept, The Tough Alliance, Marit Bergman, Soundtrack of Our Lives, I'm From Barcelona, Fibes, Oh Fibes, Sout It Out Louds... But many albums would be alright with less tracks. Eight is just enough to play them over and over again. I want a great dancehall version of Dancing On My Own. Please let it be on part 2. Expand

    This first part of a proposed trilogy is another masterpiece of pop, almost as good as her last flawless effort. If the other two albums retain this level of quality, energy and freshness, we might have the pop album(s) of the year. Expand
