FredricHMar 29, 2009Listen to this one a few times and you will find that this album is pure genius. Nothing else in the genre even comes close.
EdwardRApr 3, 2009Pure electronic/pop cat-nip. Advances electronic music forward unlike anything since Bjork's 'Vespertine'.

But currently, this one would be my choice, for me it seems like every second is perfect.
I've got some songs i'd lile to say what i think about it.
,,Happy up here'' delivers most fun and has some parallels with ,,eple'' and still delivers some more serious moments i really enjoy.
,,The girl and the robot'' is the best song on the album and i have no doubt. Robyn fits the sound of Röyksopp perfectly and the song is wonderfully produced and just satifying.
,,Röyksopp forever'' is maybe the most beautiful Röyksopp songs including the rest of their albums. The strings are sounding so good especially when the song starts to roll and the middle part sound as if it was a classic orchestral piece.
,,miss it so much'' is a very sad and happy song at the same time with lycke li who delivers some childish frequencies into the album and i simply love it.
I am so happy that there are still musicans who can create Pop whithout creating main stream but also instrumental masterpieces. Even though Röyksopp stopped bringing out music like they did when this album was released they didn't stop and i hope they will continue.… Expand

FelixCApr 14, 2009Overall 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.
FabioDDApr 6, 2009Album is ok nowhere near the fun first one... liked the single and collaborations with female vocalists but otherwise I dont really get why 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.… Expand
