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 over-the-top commercial genre, infusing it with bittersweet intimacy and hopeless romanticism. Her irresistible choruses and unabashed commitment make her the ideal bearer of a grand pop tradition carried by self-assured, singularly named blondes. Let's hope she matches their massive success in 2011. (Amy Schriefer)
