  1. Eight years later, no longer so wide-eyed, the Norwegian duo sound more pedestrian, though 'Royksopp Forever' proves they haven't lost their sense of fun.
  2. While irrepressibly buoyant, this instills a lacking, spectator quality to the album, which for the casual listener often plays like the soundtrack to a movie you haven't seen.
  3. It’s a shame, then, that instead of a sequence of whip-smart sonatas ruminating on the Scandinavian psyche, all that dribbles out is a pedestrian stream of the same old bubble-bath beats.
  4. Upbeat comeback from the kings of coffee-table electro.

    Beyond the singles-"Melody A.M." lapsed into a latterday jazz-funk. This album sometimes tends the same way, but interest is reignited by Royksopp Forever--ELO with dancebeats--and the tracks where Lykke Li and The Knife's Karin Dreijer-Andersson approach Robyn's unhinged lager-umlaut Europop berserkersim. [May 2009, p.104]
  6. All told, a successful modernisation of an old formula. [May 2009, p.118]

    Listen to this one a few times and you will find that this album is pure genius. Nothing else in the genre even comes close.

    Overall I think its a very fun album to listen to and has a nice poppy feel. Can't wait to see what comes next with Senior.
