Track Review: We need to have a chat.

It's time. We haven't had this talk yet, and I think it's really important that you hear this from me rather than from somewhere else. Boys and girls, this is how songs of the year are made.

Now, when two artists love each other very much, sometimes they come together to make beautiful music. It's all very natural. In this case, Royksopp and Robyn create a beautiful partnership using their very special gifts. There are many different ways to make music; some of them are more complicated than others, but they also can be more pleasurable. But I digress.

For "The Girl And The Robot", Royksopp provides a propulsive beat for Robyn to work her magic over. And work her magic she does, giving another powerful vocal reminiscent of her Kleerup collab. A coincidence that both turned out to be song of the year candidates? I think not. Robyn > most.

Sadly, nothing else on Royksopp's new record comes anywhere close to matching this obvious high. Yes, kids, sometimes making music is not as fun as other times. But if you do it enough - safely, mind you - you get better at it. Practice makes perfect.

I hope this chat has been both enjoyable and educational. Check the mp3 and killer vid below.
