The previously released eight track LP is Robyn's first album of new material in five years and it was well worth the wait. Body Talk Pt.1 is a fun creative disc on the inside and out. With the Cd itself resembling a demo tape and the first track entitled 'Don;t F***ing Tell Me What Do', Robyn was sure not to share any type of boredom to audiences.
On the record Robyn explores the many different types of Pop Music. She even fuses Pop music with other dancey genres. The track "Dancehall Queen" surely amplifies the fun crossover between robyn style pop music and dancehall records. The record "Cry When You Get Older" is a Heavy synth record where Robyn sings about the complications of love. The record is very edgy and is an instant Robyn classic (Like Be Mine!). "Hold up a second, now i got something on my dirty mind." Robyn sings on the first verse. Robyn slows things down on Body Talk with "Hang With Me (acoustic Version)'. An emotional record that shows the versatility of Robyn's music. Robyn sings accompanied by violins and a piano.
It is simply understood why Robyn couldn't hold on to the tracks any longer. According to the swedish magazine, Bon, Robyn stated that she did not want to wait with a release until they where all recorded and decided to release them as a set. Body Talk Pt.1 is only the opening to what the Body Talk series has in store. Body Talk will see a part two and three later on this year.
