ROBYN: 10th Year Anniversary

Robyn by Robyn turned 10 Years and other than the best pop comeback, this album was also Robyn’s masterpiece.


Words literally escape me in describing how good this CD was and how many great souvenirs I have with it. Unfortunately, none of her work in the past several years has been available in North America (except for her 1997 debut album, Robyn Is Here). Then, in 2005 she bursts on the scene with this unbelievable record. Every song was great!

Let me back up just a little bit. The first two thirds of the album are fast-paced dance tracks of perfect pop confections. The disc opens with “Konichiwa Bitches”, a catchy, self-promoting dance jam filled with blips and bleeps that almost seems ridiculous until you listen to the rest of the record.

She then launches into high-energy dance tracks “Cobrastyle”,“Handle Me” and “Be Mine“. Every track oozes tight production, but not over-production; you can tell Robyn had a hand in crafting every synth-beat of every single song.

To close out the album, she busts out some slow jams “Robotboy,” “Should have Known” that may seem all saccharine at first, but on 2nd and 3rd listen deep emotional meaning surfaces.

Handle Me

You gotta make me feel you got my back
But you’re a selfish
Narcissistic psycho-freaking
Boot-licking Nazi creep and
You can’t handle me

If you’re a fan of electro-pop and/or dance music, this album is a must have. It was simply the best international pop album since Fever by Kylie Minogue in 2001.
