Dancing on my Own is The Guardian's Best Track of 2010

In Dancing On My Own, Robyn is not at The Club with a party-hard crew hell-bent on a night of booty and bodyshots; she is alone, drawn to the dancefloor by the masochistic need to see her ex with his new flame. As nights out go, it's a bit light on fun: "I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her," Robyn sings. "I'm right over here, why can't you see me? I'm giving it my all, but I'm not the girl you're taking home."



With its air of subdued defiance Dancing On My Own seems like the… Continue

MTV News picks ROBYN's Body Talk #3 Album of 2010!

#3. Robyn, Body Talk

All hail the new Queen of Electro Pop. In 2010, Robyn released three albums of staggeringly great, pulse-quickening pump, a feat that, on sheer effort alone, probably would've earned her the crown. But unlike any of her contemporaries (insert whomever you'd like here), she infused her tunes with genuine heart, filling even her sweetest bon bons ("Dancing on My Own," "Hang With Me") with a heartbreakingly sour center. Of course, sometimes, she just…

Body Talk in NPR's 50 Favorite Albums of 2010

Dance-pop dominated 2010, and some of the smartest, danciest and most heartfelt songs came from Swedish pop artist Robyn. By releasing three albums on her Konichiwa record label (Body Talk combines the best tracks from Body Talk Pt. 1 and Pt. 2 with new material), she successfully fed a singles-hungry industry and kept her music relevant throughout most of the year. She also kept listeners dancing with cathartic, touch-the-sky anthems and darkly sexy experimentation. Robyn expertly subverts an… Continue

Robyn at Number 8 on SPIN's Best 20 Songs of 2010

"Sweden's improvement on Madonna has something on her dirty mind, and it's the most honest lovesick advice you'll ever hear in a pop song."

Robyn's 'Dancing On My Own' Is MTV News' #6 Song Of 2010

The success of "Dancing on My Own" is due as much to its sound — a computerized kaleidoscope of chippy, chiming blips and piston-like drums — as it does its sentiment. This is, after all, a thoroughly sad song, primarily about Robyn losing her man to another woman (and being masochistic enough to watch the whole thing unfold from across the dance floor), but also about the notion of feeling alone in a crowded room, of being lost and unloved and having no other choice but to be OK with…

Body Talk Number 14 on Rolling Stone's Best Albums of 2010

14. Robyn

Body Talk

Cherrytree/Interscope



Body Talk began as two sugar- shot EPs; by the time the full-length dropped, it felt like a greatest-hits package. The Swedish diva's beats and tunes smoke her American competition. So does her wit: See "Fembot" and the secretly poignant "Don't F****** Tell Me What to Do."

8.7/10 Review of "Body Talk" from Pitchfork

"With Body Talk, Robyn ups the ante for pop stars across the radio dial and raises her own chances of appearing on yours. And for all her three-album talk, she never forgets that cardinal rule of showmanship: Always leave them wanting more."

Spin's Top 40 Albums of 2010 - Robyn at Number 10

"Swedish dynamo Robyn is a pop-chart veteran with the '90s CD singles to prove it. But none of her previous work prepared us for the rebooted, hard-edged swagger of Body Talk Pt. 1, the first installment of her savvy dance-floor trilogy. While opener "Don't F*cking Tell Me What to Do" weeded out prudish former fans (although who can't relate to "My e-mail is killing me"?), it was "Dancing on My Own" that struck an international chord -- rousing, lovelorn wisdom from a club kid who's… Continue

Robyn's Nonstop Electro Pop Party - Rolling Stone

"Flanked by a four-piece band, Robyn tweaked her off-beat electro pop: "Konichiwa B******" became a revved-up rocker; the slinky "Don't F*cking Tell Me What To Do" was outfitted with a hard house beat. The gig marked a high-point in a come back story."
