  1. On Body Talk Pt. 2, this eight-track follow-up to June's Body Talk Pt. 1, the Swedish electro-pop pixie uses sleek club music to endearingly explore more unpolished emotions.
  2. A brief, brilliant record that leaves you panting, Body Talk, Part 2 is the latest evidence that Robyn is probably the best, most versatile pop star currently at work.
  3. Danceable, downtrodden songs buoyed by a hint of self-willed confidence are Robyn's specialty
  4. With not a single duffer over another eight tracks, it looks like our eventual Best Of Body Talk compilation might just be the album of the year.
  5. Show Robyn some love - she deserves better than one-hit-wonder tag she's been saddled with, and she's finally getting it.
  6. The album is no Robyn and it doesn't quite match Body Talk (Part 1) in terms of the sheer number of highs.
  7. 40
    Three LPs in a year is only a good idea if you have enough songs. [Oct. 2010, p. 94]

    I was very excited for Part 2. I purchased it last night and I was very amazed. The first track brought me in and I listened to the whole album two times through. If you havn't checked this cd out yet...DO IT NOW!!! Expand

    What a tremendous release. Tighter than Body Talk Pt 1 and just as carefree. Robyn is an incredible talent who's lyrics are clever and, at times, tongue-in-cheek. She's fresh and original. Long live Robyn! Expand

    Probably one of the most danceable, and guilt-free albums of the year. Robyn is on fire, and keeps getting better and better. I can't say enough about this record, and I'm surprised the rest of the world hasn't caught on. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is the year for the newcomers, and Robyn come with breakthrough on the pop scene with her powerfull, awesome and solid new job, i found something really amazing in her Body Talk Part 1, with her amazing Dancing On My Own or Dance Hall Queen, but this album prove that she continues growing in her passionate and advocate music, this is "royal Pop", not the auto-tune effect in the mass teen-pop of this year...Robyn is the new talent and smart pop of this year, with a collection of tracks original, creative and the add of her expressive voice, this album mark her impressive style in various tracks, this album is more than i expecting of her Part 2, and Robyn come to the pop music with her refreshing and her amazing music, with the great job of two talent producers like Kleerup and Diplo Expand

    Robyn is so much better, fresher, smarter and more talented than her female pop competitors that it is not even funny (and apparently, even the Vatican knows not to phuck with her). Comparing her to the likes of Kylie, Gaga, Ke$ha, Perry, Allen & co. is like comparing Mozart to Muzak. The second installment in the trilogy does not disappoint. It is strong, energetic, diverse, sassy and only slightly less successful that Part 1 but, taken together, those two mini albums even now make the pop album of the year and I am certain that the complete trilogy will be a serious contender for the overall album of the year.

    Robyn is easily one of the best pop act, and this album proves it. Despite only holding 8 songs, it definitely stands out with the surprisingly dance-club vibe. A vast diference from part 1, this part focus on her sexual vibe-esque lyrics and addictive hooks to reel us in (most pop albums are). Her fate as a pop star worldwide is debatable (since America's holds a huge percentage), but as her fans I say go and create more damn good pop songs... and maybe a Konichiwa **** part 2... please?

    how much does it tells about a ranking site, when the highest position in music, voted by readers (aka this site users) is this Robyn!?!? I guess Pop lovers are just too old here, to admit they like gaga, riri or other top-10 stars. So to kill the guilt they surely dug that ol' lady makin her the queen of pop nowadays, and the queen of metacritic's music section... :( DAMN!

    This record is so average, and so quickly digested that, there's no even need to write about it a few months later after its issue. ,
