Album Review: Robyn "Body Talk, Pt 2"

Swedish pop artist Robyn has been making music since she was a teenager. You might think of her as Sweden's answer to Britney Spears. But, she has since gone indie and edgy and began releasing a three part series called Body Talk last year. Pt 2 feels like a full album to Jim DeRogatis. He loves her maturity and experimentation, noting that Robyn has even managed to make Snoop Dogg sound original. He gives it a Buy It rating. Greg Kot agrees, and prompts Katy Perry to pay attention: This is how you make smart pop music. He doesn't hear anything as catchy as Body Talk Pt 1's "Dancing on My Own" but also gives the 2nd round a Buy It.
