Swedish pop sensation Robyn’s self-titled release offers an adorable, sometimes slightly raunchy sampling of girlish dance music with a synth pop flavor. The saccharine sweet vocals give the album a Top 40 feel, but the occasional hardcore lyrics give a few of the tracks a distinctive feel that sets them apart from standard pop fare that dominates the album.

Originally released last year, opening track “Konichiwa Bitches” starts the disc on a slightly harder note than many of the other tunes yet is a clear highlight of the release. She also offers a cover of the Teddybear’s “Cobrastyle” that lightens up the hard dance beats and transforms the ditty into fun dancefloor tune. However, most of the album standouts are lost between overtly cutesy tunes that would only satisfy teenyboppers; “Handle Me,” “Be Mine!” and “Bum Like You” are a dime a dozen. There are times that Robyn stretches her horizons in hopes of becoming the next Peaches, but most of the songs fall into the realm of Kylie.
