  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. There's a gorgeously indulgent quality to Svein Berge and Torbjorn Brundtland's third album.

    Through it all, the machines sound as juicily alive as the human beings. [Apr 2009, p.63]
  4. 70
    Despite their wintry chill-out origins, Nordic keyboard pair Svein Berge and Torbjorn Brundtland create smooth, sunny sounds perfect for roller-skating on rainbows.
  5. Established fans may have a problem with the ADHD style of Junior, and the album does raise some questions: is it better to be great at one thing or good several things? If you are a well-versed fan of electronica and you know what you like, then this album might not be for you.
  6. This Norwegian production couple are deft punks on their third album, a synthetic collection of upbeat dance music encapsulated by the coiling, galactic theme song 'Royksopp Forever.'
  7. Upbeat comeback from the kings of coffee-table electro.
