  • Summary: The Norwegian electronic duo's follow-up to last year's Junior was recorded during the same sessions as that release.

  1. Senior makes a strong claim to be 2010's best electronic album. It's a record to lie back and drown in.
  2. While some of the tracks sound like rough sketches that were simply given a bit more shading, most of Senior captivates as a full-length experience.
  3. There's still a feeling that the two albums might have worked better as one. [Nov 2010, p.114]
  4. It's maybe a little older and a little wiser than Junior but it just isn't anywhere near as much fun.
  5. It can't be said that Senior fails to meet its modest wallpaper-ish aims, yet it hardly represents the best Royksopp has to offer.

    The patient, thoughtful strokes here are sometimes interesting but rarely exciting.

    Maybe it's just its drastic contrast with the chirpy and pop-friendly Junior that makes Senior seem so dreary, but even out of context, Royksopp's latest seems like a poor, thoroughly underdeveloped and, dare I say it, unfinished effort.

    Not as good as Junior or the other records, but it is still good. Not very "danceable" music, but it's music to listen relaxed; without anyNot as good as Junior or the other records, but it is still good. Not very "danceable" music, but it's music to listen relaxed; without any sounds near, just you and Senior. Expand
