Robyn, 'Robyn' (Konichiwa/Cherrytree/Interscope)

Critical Mass
Label: Konichiwa/Cherrytree/Interscope

by Barry Walters

First released in her native Sweden in 2005 and resequenced with subsequent singles, this blog-celebrated bonanza of multiflavored synth bubblegum signals the second coming of a pioneering '90s teen popper. Rebelling against her prior proto-Britney incarnation, she flashes lyrical smarts that veer between wisecracking sass and heartbroken eloquence while summoning consistently nuanced studio support from Teddybears, the Knife, and other Scandinavian dance technicians. Buttressed by their subcultural quirks and her own chart-trained charisma, Robyn achieves the sort of pure pop perfection that her more mainstream records never did.
