However, Body Talk is kindaI know i'm a little late in this post but I have to comment. Never cared for her earlier R&B inspired work. However, Body Talk is kinda awesome. And by awesome I mean totally sweet. A great mix of pop/electronic sounds. Been listening to it for days now. Lyrics are much better than her earlier work. Beats are better. If she keeps putting out music like this, she'll be unstoppable. Just my opinion.… Expand
May 10, 2014Klas Åhlund and Swedish songstress Robyn created one of the catchiest (and queerest, to be honest) dance-pop records in recent years. EvenKlas Åhlund and Swedish songstress Robyn created one of the catchiest (and queerest, to be honest) dance-pop records in recent years. Even more than 3 years after its release, Body Talk continues to be one of the most timeless dance records.
"Fembots" starts the album on an overwhelmingly bubbly note, with some of the craziest sexual metaphors ever written in pop music ("I got a lot of automatic booty applications") ("Initiating slut mode"). In "Don't F***ing Tell Me What to Do", Robyn names a list of events, objects, and persons that are apparently "killing her", all talk-rapped over a minimalist techno rhythm. Either the four-on-the-floor female empowerment anthem "Indestructible" or the Max Martin-produced "Time Machine" had the chance to become two of the catchiest top 40 anthems on North American radio, if they were given the opportunity.
Robyn has an accessibly light voice that verses Åhlund's heavy 80s' electronic influenced melodies and beats. Hell, on "U Should Know Better", Robyn raps next to Snoop Dogg in one of the most obscure collaborations ever dreamed up of ("Even the Vatican knows not f*** with me"). But in short, Body Talk remains as stylish and substantial as it was at the beginning of the 2000s.… Expand
Apr 26, 2011Body Talk is a good, not great, effort. There's nothing really bad at all about here, and the music is catchy and fun. Some of the songs,Body Talk is a good, not great, effort. There's nothing really bad at all about here, and the music is catchy and fun. Some of the songs, however, seem to fade when trying to remember the entirety of the album. Some of the standout tracks, obviously stated by others, include "Dancing on My own" and "Hang With Me", which are catchy and powerhouses. There's also a little place in my heart for tracks like "U Should Know Better" with Snoop Dog and "Don't ****ing Tell Me What To Do", if just for their simple catchy style. The overall album is still good, high quality stuff, and fun to listen to.… Expand
