  1. Robyn is a sharp, sassy star capable of making heartbreaking, cutting edge, electro-pop seemingly with ease.
  2. It's great when artists learn to produce work that has more than one dimension to it. Robyn's has two. I'd just like to see her develop one or two more.
  3. And what a voice it is, dominating Body Talk Pt. 2 to a severe degree. Her alto, which sometimes mimics but never goes as far out as Kate Bush or Cyndi Lauper's, is like a fluorescent light on her music, washing out everything in its wake. If you love her voice, great; if you don't, it will cloy you to death.

    Three LPs in a year is only a good idea if you have enough songs. [Oct. 2010, p. 94]

    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!?!? Ihow 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. ,

    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?
