    Over the course of Body Talk, Robyn has proved that there's real emotion to be found among the ones and zeros of electronic music, and Pt 3. is the culmination of that outlook: euphoric, personal, and inspirational to the last beat.
  2. From "Don't F***ing Tell Me What to Do" to "We Dance to the Beat," her songwriting in that vein is as strong as anybody's. Scattered across her three 2010 CDs is one great album. How I wish this was it.

    The first genuinely exciting, no-filler, pure pop full-length album since The Fame.

    You could argue that Robyn does sexy, bolshy, catchy pop so effortlessly – as evidenced again by the new tracks, especially Call Your Girlfriend – that Body Talk should have been edited into a straightforward killer pop album.

    It's this underdog story that emphasizes just why Body Talk is such a revelation; it is the musical peak of an artist who has always had a bigger picture for what pop could sound like.

    Body Talk impresses for its thematic focus and laser-precise editing.

And I can't believe that Robyn is a singer but also a DJ. That's so insane. Expand

    This is the electro pop bible. Nothing has and will be greater than this. Record's impact sits among The Monster,Emotion and 1989 . I cannotThis is the electro pop bible. Nothing has and will be greater than this. Record's impact sits among The Monster,Emotion and 1989 . I cannot stress how great this album is. It feels fun,contemplative and experimental. She allowed herself to have fun whilst avoiding indulgence. From the pop staple "dancing in my own" that examines loneliness and inability to let go of a partner you still wanted so **** well i felt like it was autobiographical. Then the flipped perspective of "call your girlfriend " that seems to be a precursor to "dancing on my own" melancholy. Or the skilled lyricism of "hang with me". Expand

    Body Talk is a good, not great, effort. There's nothing really bad at all about here, and the music is catchy and fun. Some of the songs,Body Talk is a good, not great, effort. There's nothing really bad at all about here, and the music is catchy and fun. Some of the songs, however, seem to fade when trying to remember the entirety of the album. Some of the standout tracks, obviously stated by others, include "Dancing on My own" and "Hang With Me", which are catchy and powerhouses. There's also a little place in my heart for tracks like "U Should Know Better" with Snoop Dog and "Don't ****ing Tell Me What To Do", if just for their simple catchy style. The overall album is still good, high quality stuff, and fun to listen to. Expand
