    It’s a brave band that unleashes such an extensive body of work. It’s lucky, then, that it’s all so eminently listenable.

    Standouts aside, Profound Mysteries III feels like the weakest link in this ambitious, year-long project which, while exciting to behold, probably could have been condensed into a one exceptional album.

    The best music here is more evocative of their own past triumphs like 2014's "Do It Again" EP with Robyn. [Jan 2023, p.25]

    Despite several standout moments that are worthy additions to Röyksopp’s illustrious catalog, Profound Mysteries III can, like its two predecessors, sometimes feel too indulgent for its own good.
  5. Nov 21, 2022
    Profound Mysteries III is decidedly weirder and slower, allowing the band to explore the leftfield theatrics and grittiness intrinsic to the best side of their sound. Yet there are plenty of moments where bombastic pomp overshadows this restraint. ... All in all, a mixed bag.

    Royksopp never fails to amaze me with their unique melodies and puts you into a trance like no other!
