  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. From the cheeky hip-hop of 'Konichiwa Bitches' and the warped bass underpinning her cover of Teddybears' 'Cobra Style' to the Kylie Minogue-esque 'With Every Heartbeat' and sweeping strings carrying 'Be Mine,' the album holds 14 sassy and sweet dance pop gems.
  4. A record to throw yourself into with the same glee Robyn clearly has.
  5. Robyn is definitely a slow-burner (unusual for a dance record, which typically provides a more immediate, transient gratification), but it's also everything pop music should be: provocative, poignant, inventive, and fun.
  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.

    This self-titled album represents a huge change in Robyn's career, enough to many of her fans calling it her first record and what RobynThis self-titled album represents a huge change in Robyn's career, enough to many of her fans calling it her first record and what Robyn really is. And when we listen to it, album really shows why it is her signature record; alternative electro production, interesting lyrics, and so much emotions and creativity.. All for what Robyn is known for and what makes her an electropop legend. Expand
