  1. Really, the most impressive thing about Robyn is just how timeless it is proving to be.
  2. Robyn defines what she's all about. Even if it took a few years to put together the label and album (and a few more to get it released everywhere), this is the pop tour de force that Robyn has always had in her.
  3. The sassy Swede gives Madge something to think about.
  4. A record to throw yourself into with the same glee Robyn clearly has.

    Robyn achieves the sort of pure pop perfection that her more mainstream records never did. [May 2008, p.108]
  6. Her appeal is questionable when she tries to sound like an American rapper, but on tracks where she just sings--the immaculate junk symphony of 'Be Mine,' the excellently Japanese 'Bum Like You,' the Autobahn power-ballad 'With Every Heartbeat'--she gives Europop a swift Swedish energy and presence.

    Definitely a fresh breath of air in pop music. Robyn is a true artist, not your typical manufactured pop dancing machine. She proves indubitably that pop music can have soul, too. Expand

    In my opinion, Robyn defined herself with this absolutely amazing album for the very first time. With Curriculum Vitae she introduces herself (in a quite exaggerated way) and over the course of listening to the album we get to know her cheeky rapping, her sweet voice as well as some really heartbroken and calm moments she decided to share with us on this album. Special highlights on 'Robyn' are With Every Heartbeat, Crash And Burn Girl and Handle Me. Expand
