    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.

    Album is ok nowhere near the fun first one... liked the single and collaborations with female vocalists but otherwise I dont really get why this album is getting such positive reviews... disposable electro pop and not very good that either in the meantime there is better stuff out there.

    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.

    Pure electronic/pop cat-nip. Advances electronic music forward unlike anything since Bjork's 'Vespertine'.

    Its not instantly as catchy as their other works, but a few times around you will recognize that these guys are visionaries of electronic music.

    Near perfect. The only thing I can take away from this LP is the fact that it's not quite as monumental as the previous 'The Understanding'. Royksopp really do own the genre.

    Lives up to the expectations you would expect from this genius duo.

  1. Anyone with even a passing interest in Royksopp--whose ears have been pricked by an Eple or Poor Leno--could do far worse than immerse themselves in one of 2009's greatest releases.
  2. 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.

    Despite their wintry chill-out origins, Nordic keyboard pair Svein Berge and Torbjorn Brundtland create smooth, sunny sounds perfect for roller-skating on rainbows.
